I don't think they were used by the USN, they are not in the A-1 or A-3 NATOPS and I don't recall them being used in Vietnam.

While rooting around online I came across several links that mentions the M31 and A-26K so I am thinking that they did carry them but that they were the only one to do so.

I would go ahead and hang them, if you don't having anything saying you can't then I would go for it.

Does somebody make an after market "funny bomb", or are you going to scratch build one?

Astra Resin made them in 1/32 scale, no one else made them in any other scale to my knowledge.
