RS Models 1/72
|The Rheintochter ( Rhine
daughter ) was a AA missile designed for launching at bombers. None
were used in anger but test firings did occur. Both versions come
together in the typical box from this company with, in this case line
drawings, but often colour paintings of the a/c. The instructions are
all in Czech and given their sparseness will require a lot of head
scratching to figure them out. The various resin circles are clearly
labelled for each version and you just have to then work it out.
References may be handy here. Fortunately I have a few photos
from the Deutsche Museum in Munich which indicate that the fins were
mostly wood as was much of the body with the instructions recommending
RLM 76 & 02 as colours. The two bodies are in what looks like 1
mould due to their small size R1 - 3 inches long & R2 2 inches long
and each about 1/4 inch diameter .
This is really a kit for the enthusiast which I am and I expect a good result after a little work but it ain't cheap for what you get.
