|Bachem-Natter Rocket Plane w/Carriage & Figures 1/30 Set |
Flying only once, on March 1, 1945, the German-engineered, Bachem Ba 349 Natter was intended to serve as a point-defense rocket-powered interceptor, but proved incredibly difficult to pilot and never saw widespread production.
Resembling one of those rocket planes, this limited edition, 1/30 scale, polystone and metal Thomas Gunn model features engraved panel lines, glazed windows, realistic Schmidding SG 34 rocket boosters, and authentic markings. You even get a carriage to transport your Ba 349 as well as two metal figures who are ready to watch this experimental craft take its first flight. Plane measures 7¾" long while the figures are approximately 2½" tall; arrive ready to display.

This volume chronicles the development and combat operations of that vehicle, from its deployment with the U.S. Army in Sicily to its service with the Marines in the Pacific. 80 pages, 237 photographs, 11"x 8¼", softcover.
