IRIS-T air defense

Post by nash88 »

Done in the GHQ style
Some of my best work yet. Still needs some fine tuning but happy with the results.
Just need to make re-loader and comm truck
Not accurate since I was only able to find a few pis of it. If you guys find some more pic lmk and I can correct.
Hope you guys like it.
Wish GHQ can make this in metal for me.

Just actually to do. Use 3D builder its free. Then start with a square and go from there. Its easy to learn. What did you have in mind? What were you looking for?

Not sure what sources you already have but, found a recent article about some being sent to Ukraine:

I'm still wanting some Q36 and Q37 firefinder radars. They're probably not hard to create in the program you mentioned, I just feel pretty inadequate when it comes to fancy computer stuff!

Put me on the list. As you well know!! I have been whining about them for a few years. :)

Add in the M-989A1 HEMAT. My 3AD GS MLRS Battery and my soon to be worked on MLRS Battalion in the 41st FA Brigade need a full set of reloads to chastise the Warsaw Pact miscreants as they come across the Border.

That looks easy enough I’ll give it a try.

Too big and needs some detail but what you think?

Seriously? You can sit down at your computer for one night and create something that looks that good? It's sorcery!

That looks awesome Nash! I love it! You have a least 2 customers standing by to order! I will need at least 4 target acquisition batteries (2 in NATO camo and 2 in desert tan)!

Not trying to be all high maintenance, but would it be possible to do a version where the antenna is laying down too? So there can be one in travel mode and one deployed?

Oh yea I usually make both ver. Will split radar so it can spin too.
Look for new ver as I improve it.
Helpful if you can find closeup pic since this is a mix of the 1980 and later model.

Niiiiice...

Both versions for me, deployed and travel, for each please. Same as I do for my M-954s. For each TO&E slot I have both an expanded and a travel version.

And when you do the Q-37 my wish would be the wheeled version. The tracked version was a GW-I mod. Most of it's operational period was wheeled.

And a big Thank You!! Tired of looking at the cobbled together mess standing in. You also will give me another source to categorize in my TO&E workbook. GHQ, C-in-C, Shapeways and Nashorn88!
