1/48 48049 MPM Fi-103 A-1/Re-3 Reichenberg Piloted Bomb
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Exc
Limited issue kit. Features all fine, recessed panel lines, injection molded canopy, good cockpit detail (there was not much cockpit to this aircraft) and paint guide and decals for three aircraft. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. Although the pilot was suppose to bail out when a 'hit' was assured, one wonders how the pilot was to climb out at over 500 mph with the jet intake immediately behind his head. There were no shortage of volunteers, however. Training proceeded but was dangerous. 174 attack machines were produced but an operational mission was never flown.
