Heller LRBA PARCA Anti-Aircraft Missile, 1/50

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+++

Sold   

Very rare. 1950s Heller issue in the one-piece 'flip-top' high-gloss box with great artwork. This kit is before Heller used kit part numbers on the boxes. This model contains the two stage PARCA missile and elevating/rotating launcher. Nicely detailed kit. Molded in correct deep green and silver and includes a Heller lapel pin, unopened glue capsule and Heller inspection tag. This kit has never been started. It has been inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Shipping insurance is required. The PARCA is significant as it was the first French anti-aircraft surface to air missile. Development of the system began in 1948 at LRBA (Laboratoire de Recherches Balistiques et Aérodynamiques). The program may have used some German sources for technology and information, such as Rheinmetall, which worked on several rocket projects for anti-aircraft use during WWII. PARCA stood for (in English) 'Self-propelled Radio-controlled Anti-Aircraft Projectile'. Flight tests began in 1954. Although information varies according to the source, the guidance was radio command from the ground with a proximity detonator, the boosters were solid fuel, the main rocket has been reported as liquid or solid fuel and the range was around 20 miles (reported 19 to 24 miles). The system was deployed in 1958 on a limited basis.
