Id love to build the Stryker SHORAD using Trumpeter's M1126
I know ill need the Italeri Avenger for the turret but the problem will be where can I get 1 35 scale AIM-9X Sidwinders and 1 35 scale AGM-114 Hellfire missiles any ideas?

The new Academy AH-1Z kit has both.

The Academy AH-1Z isn't on the market yet, but their AH-1W has Hellfires. Academy's modern 1/35 helos (AH-1W, OH-58D, AH-60L DAP, MH-60S) all have Hellfires.

For the Sidewinders, there is the AFV Club M730 Chaparral. Eduard also makes AIM-9s in 1/32.

i Have a spruce of hellfires with launcher arms from a Korean longbow Apache....

They’re not spectacular but a descent start. Will send if you’re interested.

Also I believe the “turret” from chappearal was the same as avenger, and much easier to find.

Unfortunately, they are not the same turrets.

My bad, I didn’t realize they were that different. I thought avenger just deleted the front electronics box...
