Unit 4 (A4) was the type designation of 1942 in the world first operational large rocket with liquid engine. It was conceived as a long-range ballistic artillery rocket and the first man-made object that broke through the space boundary - as defined by the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale 100 kilometers - on June 20, 1944. From the middle of 1945, the A4 formed the basis of space development in the USA.

The ballistic ground-to-ground missile A4 was developed in the German Reich in the Army Research Institute Peenemünde (HVA) on Usedom from 1939 under the direction of Wernher von Braun and came in World War II from 1944 in large numbers for use. In addition to the aircraft-like Fieseler Fi 103, called V1, the Nazi propaganda also described the missile A4 as a war-winning "wonder weapon". In October 1944, she was declared Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels's retaliatory weapon 2, V2 for short. The starting units of Wehrmacht and SS simply called them "the device".

The Meillerwagen was a German trailer vehicle in the Second World War. It was used to transport a V2 rocket (aggregate 4) from the technical troop area's transhipment point to the starting point ("fuel level"). He also served as a supply vehicle during refueling and take-off preparation. A total of around 200 Meiller wagons are said to have been built, of which three have survived.

The SS 100 N is the successor of the Hanomag SS100 Gigant and was produced from 1938 to 1951. The model shows the variant with a double cabin (SS 100 LN). The six-cylinder engine had a power of 100 hp and the gearbox could be optionally delivered with a gear ratio for 35.40 or 45 km / h top speed. With a double cabin, the> 100s <was first delivered to the German Air Force during the Second World War and later also to army units. A total of 5079 vehicles were built before 1939, but these were largely destroyed in the course of the war. Hanomag produced another 1112 vehicles in the post-war period. The post-war models were renamed from SS to ST.

At Wikipedia there is a detailed documentation of the role model.

The highly detailed, unpainted model was produced in 3D printing and can be processed and painted with standard tools and colors (eg with Revell Email or Revell Aqua Color). The model weighs only a few grams and is therefore ideally suited for loading on N gauge wagons.
