Radar models

I have just finished several books on history of radar, and would love to build some models on the subject. I have not built armour for decades, and don't know what is available. Are there any kits for WW2 ground radar systems, field air defense stuff?

I have to admit, this is a really different idea, and I don't believe I have seen anything of this nature. I know there was the radar van for the 90 mm skysweeper in 1/32 scale some years ago, and there may have been a kit of the radar van for the patriot missile system done after it got all that publicity in the first gulf war. Beyond that, nothing, and certainly nothing from W.W.II era. Somewhere, long ago, I did see a large model of a British Chain-Home radar station circa 1940, but that was a completely scratch built model.

Heh heh.... You could easily scratch build a PAVE-PAWS, it looks for all the world like a Jawa sand cruiser.

There are a few resin & PE kits of mobile German radars from WWII. Best place to ask is the forums on

Interesting subject.

Not specifically a field air defense radar, but I remember seeing a Wurzburg in resin/PE within the last couple of years. I did a search and came up with

The Extratech model number should be M7216, not 7202.

Many companies carry that kit if you do further searches.

Ah a little checking pays off. Look on eBay

There isn't a missile kit for ARII listed but it's just a matter of time. Or buy the Heller and the Arii support equipment.

Yes, there is a missile launcher. It's the only one of the set I have.
