This is quoted as 1/35th scale but may be 1:40 knowing the vagaries of older Revell kits.
I picked this up at Huddersfield and it seemed to follow on from the V2.

This is the American development of the German V2 programme.

The MGM-5 Corporal developed in the USA was a surface-to-surface short-range missile that could be equipped with a nuclear warhead. With this or alternative warheads the weapon would be able to attack targets up to a distance of 140 km. In the event of war in Europe the Corporal would be used as a tactical nuclear weapon. The first artillery battalion with Corporal missiles was set up in 1955 (6 out of 12 American battalions were stationed in Europe). The Corporal weapon system remained in use until 1964.

It was notorious due to poor accuracy and used a fuel of hydrazine and Nitric Acid. Dangerous stuff.

Pictures of the box art and the contents of the kit.

Hi Zak,
The rocketeer strikes again...........................
Good work so far, I can see a whole raft of rocket models launching off the modelling workbench in next few months................
Now, what about a 1/35th Saturn V rocket, that would be impressive.
Oh, and a new house to store it in.
Cheers,
Bigkev

I'm considering pulling the Airfix Bloodhound out of my stash to build. Not 1/35 scale, unfortunately.

The only 1/35 Bloodhound I could find was a 3D printed model on EBay, it looks impressive but expensive.

I've just had a look at the 3D model and it does look pretty impressive but out of my price range unfortunately

Bit too much for me too, especially as it isn't a kit.
Well here it is so far, painted and decals (transfers) applied.
Figures still to paint.
