BLOODHOUND MISSILE GIFT SET

Releasing two RAF gift sets with different missile types in one year might have been a bit confusing for the public, but here is the second one in 1958. It uses the same RAF Land Rover as did the Thunderbird set, however this time we have very finely engineered missile, transport & loading system. The trolley has a sophisticated raise and lower mechanism. I can't help thinking though that the Land Rover looks under sized and is the wrong colour. It should have been olive to match everything else, maybe the towing vehicle should have been something bigger? the International 6X6 perhaps? This set stayed in the range until 1960

The models which made up the Bloodhound Guided Missile Set - GS4 were:
  •  351 RAF Land Rover
  •  1115 Bloodhound Guided Missile

  •  1116 Bloodhound Missile Platform

  •  1117 Bloodhound Missile Trolley

I've put the set together from models in my collection. The missile really needs a new nosecone and the launch ramp is missing a bit of roadway from its base. Otherwise not too bad.
