Default LF 1/48th QRC-160 ECM Pod

Iím looking for a 1/48th scale QRC-160 ECM Pod for my Vietnam era F-4C. Specifically the early version without the air fins. The ones on-line for 1/32nd scale are the smooth tube configuration and should be labeled AN/ALQ-171. So, Iím looking for the one that has a rib on both sides running the length of the pod, stopping just short of the front and rear cones.

I think I found one in a Hasegawa kit on-line, will see if it is accurate when it arrives.

The Hasegawa kit only contained an ALQ-87 pod, the search continues. Might be scratch build time. There are 1/32 scale after market QRC-160 kits, actually they are listed as ALQ-71, but no 1/48 scale that I can find.

Completed the scratch build, the NMUSAF restored 829 has a slightly different version of the pod. The four antennae fins are different than what was used when borrowing the pods from the F-105 stock on hand and I opted for having the top of the pod painted dark green as seen in photos of Robin in front of his aircraft.
I will post a photo as soon as I edit the size so it can be downloaded.
I added the edited size photo to my album and added it to this message linking it to the Zone-Five URL. It does’nt appear to be showing up, maybe it takes a while to be reflected in the post. If not, then maybe I’m restricted from posting images, I have no idea!
