A101 Bomarc RAAF
« on: March 07, 2016, 04:18:38 am »
As part of its Inapertwa project,the decision was taken to purchase a modern SAM system to protect the cruise missiles against surprise attack.   The Boeing Bomarc system was chosen as part of a layered defensive system.  Over 50 launchers were installed in and around Darwin airstrip along with the associated radars.  This is a model of A101-89, a SAM which was never launched in anger, doing it's job to deter possible attack against the Inapertwa cruise missiles.












The model and launcher is the Belcher Bits Bomarc B kit and launcher.

That's VERY good indeed!  :thumbsup: :bow:

I didn't know anyone did a Bomarc in 1/72, but I keep forgetting the wonderful stuff that Belcher does.  :banghead:

Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

I do like that.

Let's make Victoria great again.

Another ill conceived, poorly thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.
