AVPRO EXINT pods in 1/48th and 1/72nd:

EXINT Pod info: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exint_pod

They were at least fit checked on the Harrier and Apache. As far as is known, they were never actually test-flown, although rumours persist of them being used for SPECFOR ops on helicopters.

Good article and more pics here: http://www.thinkdefence.co.uk/2014/04/exint-pod/

These are made by Ranchoth, who is on BtS & is open to suggestions/requests for (weapons) designs, too.

Some more pics of EXINT have been posted on a Twitter thread, including ones that don't appear in that article:
