IR targeting and driving devices......
« on: July 19, 2016, 09:03:53 PM »
I would like some of the German IR targeting and driving devices....for Falke...UHU ...and the ones for Panther tanks etc....This would be a good accessory /upgrade kit....maybe a few infantry included with the vampire equipped assault rifles ?

I would find that useful, but like the Ausf F upgrade would it sell enough?

As Steve has just completed an IR equipped Panther, he might be able to estimate whether it would fit on a 1/6 of a Rubicon tank sprue, say the size of a third edition Womble sprue? Add a couple of Vampir sights to fill.

Warlord have already produced a set of German vehicles and troops with IR equipment:

While the Sperber IR fitted to Panthers would be a pretty small component, (quite a bit smaller than the Dust version Steve used on his excellent Panther) & while you probably could squeeze them onto a sprue, Heer46 do a very good one in pewter (both turret commanders scope & drivers) & Company B also do the 60cm IR searchlight & drivers scope for 251.
 They probably could be included in any future upgrade sprues, but if Rubicon are considering moving into resin/pe parts it might be a better way to produce lower volume parts such as these - I'd certainly be up for a few.

Yes guys already know about all the aftermarket ones....quite expensive for what you get....it would only take up a small corner on a plastic sprue and would be a nice addition to several kits already in Rubicons range.

A bit of threadomancy, but I thought this might be of interest.
