This is a cracking kit, especially as you get two complete V1s and ramps. They would be excellent blitz fodder and this was indeed my intention until real life intervened. There may still be a chance later in the month!
I made a quick base for it to go on and the idea is to add other military items and make it an open air museum....

Beautiful work there. I have one of these though the pre built one. I am going to re-work it into the JB1 Loon.

All the best.
