Manufacturer: New Ware
Name: Bumper (V-2/WAC Corporal)
Scale: 1:72
Kit contents: 44 injection molded parts
2 resin parts
Comments: This kit combines the 1/72 scale injection molded V-2 kit from Condor with two resin parts to depict the two stage Bumper sounding rocket. The injection molded parts have some flash and will need a bit of cleanup after removing them from the part trees. The two resin parts represent the nose cone of the V-2 and the WAC Corporal upper stage. The resin parts are solid, with a smooth surface finish. The WAC Corporal's fins on the V-2 nose cone piece are *very* thin and fragile: one of mine had broken off in shipping. There's also a bit of flash below the fins that will take some care in removing so as not to damage the fins themselves. Both resin parts are still on their pour plugs. In addition to the Condor instructions for building the V-2 is a sheet that shows where to cut the nose of the V-2 and how to add the resin parts for the WAC Corporal. A short program history, a decal applying guide, and four-view paint guide complete the additional instruction sheet.
Reference Price: $12.00
