Blue Steel Missile Trolley - 1:72 Drawings?


Recommended Posts

All,

I'm building the new-tool 1:72 Airfix Vulcan. I'd like to finish it with a full load of 21 iron bombs (supplied), and the Blue Steel missile displayed next to it on a trolley.

Re. the trolley, I can only find a very expensive metal version, and a "TBA" Matador transporter (also very expensive).

Does anyone have drawings, or good photos of the trolley, with some dimensions, or at least something I can roughly scale from?

Current plan is to CAD one up, and 3D print it in resin (unless there's a good file already available).

Thanks in advance.

Here's a GA of the Mandator carrier/loader:

Is this any good?

Is it possible to work out dimensions from those photographs using the kit missile?

The pintrest photo(linked to)has crew in it to possibly give some scale.

ML Aviation designed and built them;

Might it be worth giving them a shout?,they may have drawings and dimensions.
