Item No. 9140 - 1/35 German V-2 Rocket + Communications Center

The Vergeltungswaffe 2 (Retaliation Weapon 2, or V-2) was one of Germanys wonder weapons, and it was certainly revolutionary at the time. It holds the distinction of being the worlds first long-range ballistic missile, and rockets were used widely against London and later Antwerp. Indeed, more than 3,000 V-2s were launched from September 1944 onwards, resulting in the deaths of some 7,250 people. The V-2 was also known technically as the A4, and it was the progenitor of all modern rockets. A V-2 could reach a maximum altitude of 88km before beginning its ballistic free-fall trajectory. One of the key designers behind the liquid-fuelled rocket project was Wernher von Braun. The 12,500kg and 14m-long rockets were constructed by prisoners at Mittelwerk, and they were fired from mobile launchers that proved difficult for Allied aircraft to target.

Orange Box has an astonishing 1/35 scale plastic kit of the famous, or perhaps infamous, V-2 rocket. This is an older Dragon kit but it has stood the test of time well, plus it includes a launch platform. Also, it is many years since Dragons V-2 was available, so this Orange Box release allows modelers to again get their hands on this important German weapon of WWII. To make it even more versatile, the set includes a 1/35 scale communications center that is crammed with a variety of radio gear and associated soldiers/radio operators. This set from the Orange Box collection offers unbeatable value for money.

its just a reissue and the figures, honestly, have nothing to do with the V-2. Just robo-spam postings

their ads in Plane Talking, and 'ads' from other non HS sponsors, don't seem to bother Mr Green.

Just ignore them like I always do. Now if their prices really were spl, fantastic, out of this world, etc, I might not totally ignore.

How about the SdKfz 7 launch control vehicle to go with it?
