(resin pod with white metal prop and decals with placement guide)
The Douglas Aircraft Company developed “Buddy Pod” Aerial Refueling Store; Model D-74. This pod could be carried attached to a standard pylon and was used for refueling the jets. The design was created around the 400-gallon version of the bomb and tanks and its shape was developed in an effort to decrease drag on the aircraft it was attached to. The “Buddy Pod” carried 300 gallons of fuel and was equipped with self-contained fuel transfer and hydraulic pumps driven by a nose-mounted propeller. The internal reel that could stream close to 40 feet of hose. There was an approximate 200 gallon fuel transfer rate.
