Does anyone have a good source for replica 2.25 training rockets (SCAR) or the 'Willie Pete' phosporus rockets?

2 and a quarter or 2 and three quarters? Didn't the O-2 have 2.75? Still have to get you in touch with Jon Mc here in town, he can custom make what ever you need. If you need non-inert that might be a little tougher.

Yes they had 2.75 FFAR (folding fin aerial rocket). I don't think that there was anything smaller, and the next size up would be a 5".

Jon Mc does a wonderful job and much nicer to work with AND probably a whole heck of a lot cheaper IIRC

That would be a Zuni. We carried them regularly
on our sqd's A-6s. Great rocket goes when you
aim it and packs a punch!

Thanks to my WIX Boerne buds here, I've found someone (J Mc) who already fabricates the two shot 2.75" rocket pods which were used on the later A models. These look to be similar if not the same 2 shot pods in the -1 and MM, and will fit the existing bomb pylon as they are supposed to.

I think these may be a very good XC display option, for as good as the 50 cal pods look, they really slow the little plane down.

Here is the first rough fitting on the factory pylon on the T-28A

Looks pretty good, with least weight and drag on performance of the armament options.

Good shot................you got Tora the hangar cat. He doesn't hunt Rattlers like Mosquito does , but then again were not in west Texas and he doesn't have to work as hard as Garys' cat.
