Are there any companys out there that make missiles suitable to use as markers in modern airwar games. Looking for something I can mount on a flight stand. I am using 1/600 aircraft from Tumbling Dice if its any help

The game "Silent Death" came with sprues of ickle plastic missiles. Wonder if those who are pirating the SD ships ever thought of doing those too.

One of my friends makes missile markers out of white pipe cleaners with one end burned off.

Litko in the USA has some new air-to-air missiles on stands, although they may be too big for your application. See link and scroll down about 1/3rd.

They also have "flat" (no flight stand) missile markers in their Space Gaming section: link

SkyRaider, formerly SkyWarrior do various types; see them in the flesh over at the always useful Fort Wargame website:

The company's site:

skyraider1992.tripod.com

Also, Brigade Models do Sci-Fi versions:

Also I believe Baccus did some weapon sprues of missiles etc in their Sci-Fi ranges too….might be something that would fit, size wise.

Hope this helps,

Cheers, SteelonSand.

I found this thread when posting my own missile markers.

You might be interested for modern land or air games so I thought I'd resurrect the thread; they're really quick and easy to make.
