V-1 Missile

The first successful cruise missile, the V-1 was not a terribly sophisticated machine but it earned its place in history.  It  has since become iconic and it is one of the obvious "Wunder Weapons" in the Nazi arsenal.  As such, it is no surprise that this aircraft / missile has been a frequent modeling subject.  Previously seen as part of "combo" kits that paired the V-1 with its more notable interceptor aircraft (usually late model Spitfires or Tempests) the V-1 has recently been rendered in all its various versions by MAC Models.  There's also been other renderings of the more specialized versions of the craft and once I unearth the images of those I'll post them here as well.

MAC Models Plastic - 1/72

These kits are well molded and come with a small photo-etch sheet to enhance the basic twenty six pieces of styrene that comprise the rest of the kit.  The nosecones and other subassemblies vary between the different versions.  It's good to see these kits detailing this rather esoteric subject.

Tamiya - 1/48

It's a Tamiya kit so the rest speaks for itself . Somewhere buried I have 5 of the Testors kit with 5 of their Okha's bought for a bargain price years ago.

William Moore

This is the Trainer version of the manned V-1 with 2 cockpits and a landing skid. With only 10 parts in 1/72 scale this is a small kit which disappointingly has small bubble dents all over the body but as it's so small these shouldn't take too long to fix. Other than that 2 nice seats are included along with the canopies etc. Should be a pretty quick build .

Just noticed RS Models also do a version of this plane - probably better quality too.
