I've been messing around scaling the drawings of the VF-1 Super from the Spacewings Masterfile. In SDFM Hikaru fired 12 missiles from each arm pod (6 pairs each) I took an image from the VF1 masterfile to see if it was feasible or anime magic There's two types of arm pods. The one with the smaller missiles staggered at the front, and the one with bigger missiles that are even on the front. So there's room for 12 missiles if they are 200mm dia x 750mm long. The one with bigger missiles seems to have room for at least 5 missiles of 350mm dia x 1m long. then, I wanted to see how many 20cm x 70cm missiles can fit in the boosterpods. Turns out, quite a few. scale 150px=1m; the scale bar turned out to be exactly 20cm (scaled) in thickness so that made it really easy for me. The exit ports are drawn a little too small at 22cm x 59cm Both exit ports could stand to be shifted down slightly but I can work with them where they are. With a full 3x4x2 magazine, feeding the exit ports from the outside edges won't work, but you can feed them from the center. Each horizontal 3x2 (6 missile) layer feeds one exit port, taking from the center missile, with the outer missiles feeding into the center. Each missile feeds forwards and then shifts left or right at an angle to meet the exit port. With one missile staged in each exit port, you can fit 28 missiles in each pod. If there's no center column of missiles then the outer rows shift inwards and the exit ports are fed from the outer rows, for 20 missiles with one staged in each port. This number is supported by one of the old models which I used as the basis for this exercise: 2 missiles on each side backed by 2 columns of 4. Thoughts?
