ASP V-2 Flying Model Rocket Kit (24mm version)
Skill Level 3
This model rocket is very similar to the OOP Centuri SuperScale V2. Like the other ASP V-2 kits, this model has a pre-drilled balsa boattail & balsa nose cone, laser-cut basswood fins and is accurately scaled. Designed primarily to fly on D12 motors, it will also fly outta-sight on a composite E! Also flies great on 18mm Bs and Cs with an 18/24 adapter (not included).
The V-2 ("Vengeance Weapon 2") is perhaps the most famous, and certainly the most infamous, rocket ever built. Designed by Werner von Braun for the Nazi war effort during WWII, the V-2 was the world's first large liquid-fueled rocket. Originally designated the A-4, thousands were built by prisoners during the early 1940s. After the war, many captured V - 2s were flown by the U.S. as well as the Soviet Union. Despite its horrific inception as a weapon of destruction, the V-2 was the forerunner of all the large liquid-fuel rockets which were to follow.
This kit has been recently updated to include an optional quick-change engine hook. Instruction sheets have been updated and re-written as well.
Made in the USA.
