    A Kit Suggestion For Any Mfg.

    "AGM-78 Standard ARM"

    Any size, any scale; any mfg...

    Blackhawk R&D was the last to offer this model in a 5.5" kit form, it would be great to see it as a kit again in this size...BSD? Northcoast (other than SA-14 Archer)? Loc? PML (6" maybe)?

    Really, this model is great at any size, I just wish more mfg's offered them...TLP had a cool one.

    Just a suggestion, as it is one of the sharpest rockets to model up...

    Ken's page at https://blastzone.com/performancehob...asp?groupid=17 says he's got "The Launch Pad" version in stock. I'd give him a call before ordering just to make sure. But last time I saw him he had a stack of TLP kits.

    Yeah, I have both the SA-14 Archer, and a 3.0 scratch archer which closely resemble the SS Arrow...

    ...and I am reworking a 5.5" Blackhawk Standard ARM.

    The AeroTech STRONG ARM model was designed with the AGM-78 Standard ARM in mind.

    Like said before, The Launch Pad sold the designs for the AGM-78 Standard ARM. I liked it so much I bought heavier duty material to upgrade to a 29mm rocket and am adding the booster for a 2 stage.

    Re: A Kit Suggestion For Any Mfg.

    Thinking bigger, I would love to see this kitted as a 5.5", 6" (PML), or 7.5"

    Again, TLP makes one closest to scale, and Aerotech & NCR are furthest from scale. What I personally would like to see, is something closer to scale of the AGM-78...and I'll throw in a similar vehicle, the RIM-66 (love the paint scheme).

    Absolutely love that family of missiles.

    I'm (still) holding out for the TLP Talos, but that's another story...
