V2 missile at RAFM Cosford

With the new V2 hitting our shelves, I thought I would get over to Cosford to get some photos of the V2 mounted to the trailer there, sadly there isn’t a Hanomag to go with it and it’s not in a position where I can get 360° access for photos as it’s tight against the hangar doors.

Hopefully though, the photos can be of some use to someone. I’m not 100% sure on how original it is, and the V2 itself looks a bit battered but I’m putting that down to the age as I can’t imagine they would look like that new. Some useful parts shown in the photos, as the surface on the kit is smoothed with flush rivets, but you can clearly see sections with raised rivets, whether you would want to replicate this though is another question.
