December 13, 2012 · in Aviation · · 7 · 3K

This model is made ​​quite spontaneously, just a box in the closet lying too long))). All will recall product from the Frog - -14 and V-1, in the 72nd scale? So, I wanted to do something similar.

Spitfire asked some of my alterations, I put the resin nose and propeller blades from Quikboost, vacuum canopy from Squadron, well, figure pilot compilation of several figures. The prototype aircraft chose squadron-leader N.Kynaston known that he had destroyed most V-1.

German wunderwaffe is a product from RevellMonogram, with it also a bit tricky. Homemade stand, legs bent from scraps telescopic antenna. That's basically all, I hope you enjoy the work.
