Default Spencer Scale Missile Build Thread!!


My skymaster 1/5 F-16 with boarding ladder, balancer and Aim9x and of course personalized chocks!

Zero sanding, this is what the 1/5 AIM9X head looks like after a quick shot of primer and model masters airbrush paint!

Aim120 head


AIM120- still working on the decals... Only 3.5oz each at nearly 29” long!

Getting there! Time for decals and some weathering...

She’s looking good dirty!
Hey guys, there’s been a lot of suggestions to start a fun build thread to see different missiles, paint schemes and The beautiful planes they will be flown on! I enjoy my down time in a hotel room at work designing the world’s most scale replica missile kits and making them available to you. It has become a hobby within a hobby learning how to engineer, 3D model and produce a light weight kit that are strong and accurate to the real deal is a rewarding challenge.

Currently I offer AIM9 sidewinders, AIM9X sidewinders, AIM120 Amraams, Scale Missile “balancers”, TCTS pods, MK82 bombs, scale boarding ladders and soon cockpits/ejection seats! They come ready to assemble and can be build and painted in as little as 2 hours/ pair. For more info PM me or even better visit and like www.facebook.com/spencerscale so stay up to date with the latest developments!

I’ll start us off- Yesterday I began working on my AIM120’s. My kits are designed to be quickly assembled and self aligning. I built/painted two aim9xs, 2 aim 120s, and a balancer in about 5 hours. Feel free to chime in on what you’d like to see made next!

All of these products are truly works of art. Having been able to handle these several times now, even these high quality photos donít do them justice.

Being a novice turbine pilot I look forward to having a bird soon which I hang a few of these sweethearts on.

So, whoever you are out there; your model deserves these.

I haven’t assembled mine yet but can tell you the quality of the product is top notch. I can’t wait to assemble and add to my birds.

Default The SLUF gets a makeover!


After 12 years, my A7 got a makeover with Spencer Scale AIM-9s. An AWESOME addition! Thanks Spencer!

I still need to add a couple stripes and decals to the Sidewinders. The 3D printed detail is incredible.

I think the new Sidewinders help me bring home the Best Scale Finish plaque at the Coachella Jet Jam last weekend.

I would like to make Mavericks and eventually a Phoenix as well. I’m just trying to gauge interest to figure out my next project.😉

That ACMI/TACTS pod brings back memories. My father designed the original ACMR system for Cubic Corp back in the 1970s..

I wish I knew why the SLUF gets no love from the model manufacturers.. Such an awesome airplane with tons of scheme and loadout options!

that’s really cool Doug! I’ve done a few of these pods and it’s pretty cool to see the different arrangements, options, weights, etc based on the aircraft and use. I just did the work for an increment 2 (TCTS II) in 1/5 scale, pretty cool
