As I mentioned when reviewing the 1/6 scale kit of these, surprisingly little could be found concerning this weapon on the Internet. Suffice it to say that this was an inexpensive rocket launcher that could fire a variety of projectiles, but most often, the 32 and 28 cm rockets. Often found attached to the side of German half tracks late in the war, these rocket launchers could also be used separately on the ground. These used an inexpensive tube framework to house up to four wooden rocket crates that housed the rockets. Thanks to feed back from those who know, I can tell you that the rockets could be fired directly from their shipping cases.
So this is another interesting kit that shows a generally unkitted aspect of German WWII weaponry. An interesting set and one that should make for a most pleasing diorama in its own right.
