When you think of the 1:18 scale hobby, names like 21st Century Toys and Blue Box Toys come to mind. Most have never heard of a small company called Pegasus Hobbies. The simple design of the V-1 was a unique choice for Pegasus Hobbies to make an interesting contribution to a market over saturated with “notable aircraft” such as the P-51D.(from Wikipedia)
The Fieseler Fi 103, better known as Vergeltungswaffe (German for “vengeance weapon”), or V-1, was an early cruise missile used during World War II. The V-1 was developed at Peenemünde by the German Luftwaffe during the Second World War. Between 13 June 1944 and 29 March 1945, it was fired at population centers such as London and Antwerp. V-1s were launched from “ski” launch sites along the French (Pas-de-Calais) and Dutch coasts until the sites were overrun by Allied forces. The underground V-1 storage depots at Saint-Leu-d’Esserent, Nucourt and Rilly-la-Montagne, as well as the launch sites, were bombed during Operation Crossbow.
