Got this kit for review. The missile doesn't have a lot of parts, but the launch base has a bunch of tiny PE. But what did you expect in 1/144?
Here's the launcher base before painting
The missile and launcher painted, before mating
The missile and base, painted, not mated
And the finished product. The base didn't hold the missile perfectly vertical.
I was very happy with the decals, because there weren't any.
My review appears on the IPMS USA website.
Very nice build! I just ordered a copy of this kit as I have been on a bit of a V-2 kick lately (just finished a Mauve 1/48 V-2). I really appreciate your in-progress shots as they are a great heads-up on the challenge of getting the V-2 vertical.
Have fun modeling!
