Default Hydrogen Bomb pictures

Does anyone know of public domain photographs of H-Bomb warheads in storage or on/in aircraft? I need a few for my film project.

Boy, if that request doesn't get you on some sort of security alert list, nothing will!
Seriously, though, I don't know offhand of any public domain pics. Over the years, I've seen some pics in various history books (actually, I think most if not all of them were of A-bombs, especially those used against Japan), and I imagine those pics (or ones similar to them) might be available for purchase from the National Archives or something. Don't know if that really helps...
Maybe you could watch Doctor Strangelove for some ideas.

Look for a book called "The History of the US Nuclear Arsenal" by James Norris Gibson. There are a couple of shots of nuclear weapons on aircraft in there. (Also, lots of missiles and other weapons of mass destruction.) Photos may not be in the public domain though.

Also, head off to Nuclear Weapon Archive where you will get a complete (or at least known complete) list of US nuclear devices. In fact, head off to their home page and have a wander. Again copyright on images on the site is unknown.

Try http://www.nukephoto.com/, a site maintained by photographer Paul Shambroom. Not 'public domain' as such but worth a look, and images can be purchased under various licences.

Heh, on par with, 'can you tell me where the nuclear wessles are'. If we see the mushroom cloud we will know that you were successful.

US Nuclear Weapons by Chuck Hansen is a good reference

Not a lot of model kits with A-Bombs stores included but those that I know of are...


Monogram 1/48 Thunderstreak
Monogram 1/48 B29 has Fatman and Littleboy
Academy 1/72 B29 Enola Gay and Bock's Car versions I think.
Heller 1/72 and 1/48 Mirage IV
Heller/Airfix? 1/48 Etendard
Airfix 1/72 Vulcan
Mach2 1/72 Valiant
Esci? 1/72 B52 with Hounddogs
Airfix 1/72 TSR2
Italerai 1/72 NATO weapons? had a WE177 type included

can anyone add to the list?

Regards,
Barry
