AH-1W SIdewinder mounts
Posted by Anonymous on Tuesday, July 22, 2003 6:16 PM
Does anyone have any reference pictures of the sidewinder mounts on the whiskey? I bought an italeri AH-1Z 1/48 kit, but am building it instead as a whiskey, since they just threy in a new sprue, so I do not have the whiskey directions and therefore am at a loss of how to mount the sidewinder mounts on the stub wings as well as two other little parts and why there is a cutout in the bottom of the stub wings with nothing apparently going there, less it be the sidewinders and I don't know how they would go there. Can the AH-1W carry rockets, hellfires, and two sidewinders all at the same time? Any reference photos or scans of the actual Italeri 1/48 AH-1W instructions would be even better. I have found plenty of pictures of the whiskey, and several with sidewinders, but they were always in place of the outside mount for rockets/missiles. Thanks in advance.,

Well actually, I think the sidewinder rails go 'over wing' like a GR-1Jaguar. And yes it can carry full hellfires/full TOWs + Rockets. The option is Chaff Dispensers or missiles

Ah, I see.. I was wondering about that. I think I saw a picture where it looked like that was the scenarion but I was not sure as I though you could carry both. Do you happen to know if there is the option to carry 1 sidewinder and 1 chaff dispenser? I'm sure I can find out, Thank you very moch for the information!!!
