This site is the result of my venture into modeling rockets, missiles, drones and RPVs in 1/72 scale. At first I started with constructing a few rocket and missile kits as a diversion from my usual building, but it seemed that the more I built the more interested I became in the variety of rockets, missiles and drones available in 1/72 scale.
Now my plan is to build as many 1/72 scale rockets, missiles and drones as I possibly can and I have expanded from solely building kits to building subjects that are only available as parts in other kits (usually contained as ordinance).
Once I started down that path I found that it became increasingly difficult to keep track of all the possible subjects available and in which kits they can be found. So to ease the task of tracking which missiles, rockets, drones and RPVs I could potentially build, I started on a simple database where I kept track of the rockets, missiles and drones that were available.
After building many of the easier to obtain items I realized that I would need some help in obtaining some of the hard to find items I wanted to build. Also I want to avoid spending money on non-missile specific kits just to get a missile or two from them for my collection. So I'm hoping that those who visit will go to my want list and check out the items that I'm currently looking for, take pity on my poor tortured soul, and be willing to sell or trade some of their items. I am willing to trade anything that is on my trading block page, or purchase kits/items for a reasonable amount.
To get an idea of what I have accomplished so far, below is an image of my US Design Series collection (a subset of my total collection), taken at the Regina Scale Modellers Expo 2006.
As for the database, subjects are placed under their indigenous nation of original design and manufacture (to the best of my knowledge). I do have non-indigenous entries in the lists, but they link to the page corresponding to the indigenous subject. For example, non-US users or manufacturers of the AIM-9 Sidewinder air-to-air missile (for example Sweden's RB24 and RB74) will link to the corresponding USA missile page, where the kits for the AIM-9 are listed.
Within each nation, the entries are in list format, generally in alphabetic order or by designation number sequence. Where possible I have included a picture of the box top, or for those kits that were released without a box, an image of the packaged kit as a guide to what you would see at a hobby shop, or for sale from an online vendor or auction site.
It has been difficult to decide what kits/subjects should and should not be included in the database. I have tried to use the following guidelines (not hard and fast) for inclusion into the database:
You will also probably notice that some of the database entries are bold. A bold entry indicates that I have built the model(s) in question. You can find pictures of my built kits at the model pix page, where you will also find pictures of some missiles I have converted from existing missiles kits or that I have made from scratch.
I would like to thank the following individuals who have helped me with obtaining some of the subjects (at minimal or no cost) that I have built and are featured on the model pix page.
If you have any information regarding missed subjects that you feel should be included in the database, a better picture of the subject's box top than I have, or corrections/clarifications for the database with regards to kit numbers, box top Images, etc., you can send me an email at:
