Thanks guys.
Little update today, finished the wings and also nearly done with the fuselage. Next to this i tried to improve the Air-2 Genies from the kit.

I think I recognize those bombs as nukes. 🙂

Right, these were nuclear Air-to-Air-Missiles, they should destroy a whole bombe group at once. I´m glad this never happened.

Ah, you are right. I had no idea these were air-to-air missiles.

Thanks for the pic, shape looks a bit different to most other Genie pictures. I went mostley after this phot from Air Defence Museum in Bagotville. [img1]

I guess the fin extensions were only deployed after launch. I have never seen these on any Genie model missiles.

This is pretty cool. Testing a Genie: Youtube Video

You´re right Clifford, I should sand them down a bit more.

@Ben, glad it was only tested and never need to be used.

Hi Daniel: In previous life I was a Weapons Technician in the CAF. I was with 409 SQN in the 1980s.

I had hands experience with both the AIM-4D and the AIR-2A. I was "C" man which means I "drove" the AIR-2A on its trailer. Combined rocket and trailer weight was a 1,000 LBs. With the B man we loaded the AIM-4D by hand.

Note this kit has the AIM-4G missile. We used AIM-4Ds. Hannants has two nice after market two AIM-4D options.

Mike Belcher has a nice CF-101 decal sheet. Feel free to finish your kit as a 409 SQN aircraft. 🙂

Thanks for building a Canadian Voodoo.

Hi Carl.
Nice to get input from the first hand. I will not pay any attention on the Falcon, I´ll only use the Genies and clue the movable parts from the weapon bay in place.
I allready have the sheet from Belcher Bits here, ordered directly from him, great service and very fast shipping to Austria.
Greetings to Canada, I hope you stay tuned.

Hi Daniel:

Mike is awesome. I have lots of his sheets. I will be watching your build.

Here is a photo of an AIR-2A on the trailer. I'm not in the photo but some of armorers I worked with are.

One other item detail. There are two wires which hold the fins in. The rocket will quickly burn through them and the fins extend.

This the best photo I can find showing the wires. Can be made from heated sprue.

Carl, in that photo the armourers are getting pretty close to the undercarraige door. "Dink!" Typical flippin' Plumbers, making more work for the Riggers! 🙂
