Nice Firebee sequence from about 12 minutes into this Ryan-produced film of the 1958 William Tell meet:

A-26 looks good with large missile type objects hanging under it's wings.  Could make a good early ALCM set up.

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.

And here are missile things hanging under missiley-things!  Some more good footage from Ryan, this time the BGM-34A in 1971 launching Maverick / HOBOS / Shrike

Interestingly many of the target-impact photos of those weapons published over the years seem to come from this series of tests.
