Evening all,

Are there any spare parts swapping forums around? I'm after 4x 1/32 AIM-9L and don't want to open my wallet quite as wide as the Zactomodels set would require. I've ended up with various spare parts and munitions over time, and figured someone's probably had the bright idea to set up an exchange, but I couldn't find anything with a brief search on my phone.

Any ideas?

Cheers!

All these places have to start from somewhere, why don't you help set something up here?
Tell me what sort of format you need etc and we can work it out. You'll have to promote it, or it will fail but I'm happy to work something out.

Very cool. I'll have a think on what I think it might need to function & get back to you. Cheers!

I think I have some left over from the Academy F-16 kit. I'll check when I get home.

Hey Grant, CyNaKyL, thank you both that's very generous.

Just to make sure I'm not wasting your time, are they late model (the L in particular are what the period UK Phantom I'm putting together carried, or the M looks about the same) AIMs, with the fins looking like this:



I've got a few AIM-9Es floating about (or they might be Ds...?), but the build I'm doing deserves, I think, accuracy, and calls for Ls or their visual equivalents.

Cheers!

Mine are definitely Lima winders, the rectangular tail fins and 90 degree triangle front fins are the giveaway. PM me.

Couldn't find mine, though I'm certain there were some there. Good to hear CyNaKyL has come through.
