Description

This is an injection-plastic jet aircraft model kit.

OK..picture this. You are instructed to strap yourself into what is essentially a two-stage V2 with a cockpit. You will be boosted to an altitude of 160km by the first stage and then `guide` the top stage 5000km via signals from a network of submarines stretched across the Atlantic. If you survived, you were to aim this monster at New York City and bail out. If you survived that then you were to be picked up by one the subs and brought home. Yeah - right! Gives a bit of insight into the desperation thinking in Germany during the latter part of the war.
Imported into Japan by Hasegawa. This is the Special Hobby kit from the Czech Republic. Rather simple on the detail with a vacuum-formed canopy. Assembly is easy, but you'll want to clean things up extensively and perhaps add additional detail.
