What's the best option for ALARM missiles in 1/48?  Are they included with any of the 1/48 Tornado kits, and if so, are they decent representations?

What you need to do is set up a 1/48 SAM site and start transmitting. A 1/48 ALARM should be along shortly.

There are some in one of the later Airfix Tornado kits.  Problem is, I don't recall which one.  They aren't too bad and should clean up well.  Did you check with Flightpath? I thought one of their sets had some ALARMS but am not sure.  Hopefully I've given you some direction for your search.

Thanks for the tip Kirk!  Will see if I can get hold of the Airfix ALARMs.

They are also included in the Hobbyboss kit [x6], some sprue shots are at https://www.super-hobby.com/products/Lo ... o-IDS.html
I don't know how accurate they are though :)
Hope this helps.
