The kit comes with Sidewinders and HARMs.
The Sidewinders are one-piece, but the HARMs come in halves
(cut along the long axis)
just like the external fuel tanks --
the tanks by the way are a pain to glue correctly.
They also have these extra fins that you have to attach
(see full-size picture),
which helps raise the parts count.
I do see how it's easier to mould the halves and the fins separately.
The Sidewinders are relatively small and can be molded in one piece.
My file array is a nice way to hold things like this upright.
