ASP Flying Model Rocket Kit V-2 13mm
The V - 2 ("Vengeance Weapon 2") is perhaps the most famous, and certainly the most infamous, rocket ever built. Designed by Werner von Braun for the Nazi war effort during WWII, the V - 2 was the world's first large liquid-fueled rocket. Originally designated the A - 4, thousands were built by prisoners during the early 1940s. After the war, many captured V - 2s were flown by the U.S. as well as the Soviet Union. Despite its' horrific inception as a weapon of destruction, the V - 2 was the forerunner of all the large liquid-fuel rockets which were to follow. At just 7 3/4" tall, this model is true to scale and features a balsa boattail, balsa nose cone and laser-cut basswood fins. Flies on mini A engines. We've made a minor update to this kit and have completely re-written the instructions!
