    US Dragon Antitank Missile

    Might anyone have the foam end protectors for this missile tube? Any sight units out there that anyone wants to sell or trade?

    I believe the sight is a restricted item, aka illegal to own. I don't know of any in private hands, I do know that there are mock/trainer units out there but near impossible to find or near impossible to pry from people who do have one. I know I have been looking for years for one and never even had a chance to buy or trade for one, but I did at least get to see a few over the years.

    Who needs foam when you have an actual missile to load into your Dragon missile tube?


    Ok, perhaps I only made the nose cone and stuck it in there. However, you will note that I have my sight unit base in place. It has the four lugs necessary to lock it into place. Cutting the foam has proven more difficult than I thought it would be, so I have ordered more materials and a new electric hot knife.

    I used my favorite material to machine - Delrin plastic. I used the same material for my sight unit base.

    The sight unit is mostly done. The foam still is not great, and those are the third try for each one. I now hate foam.
