Bloodhound in 1/100 scale and with his panel lines. It looks very different. Now that I'm doing this Missiles I'll going to retake an old project from 3 years ago: 3rd. Reich antiaircraft missiles. Tony.

Looking good Tony. Bloodhound looks a little naked without its booster rockets though. I only ever saw them on the launchers. Never saw one in flight, but then again at Mach 2, I doubt if anyone saw them fly by.

If you want some more missile suggestions ... for me I guess one of Sadam's Scuds and a Patriot to knock it down with. Not Cold War I know, but I do have a Gulf War Medal and was quite impressed with the way the Americans knocked out the incomers. Had to duck a few times to dodge the falling shrapnel though.
Keep on snippin' ... Johnny

Museum exhibits

Tony : Bloodhound is coming together well. Brooklands museum has a Rapier but it isn't on display at the present time.

Kevin : I think Hendon still has the Bloodhound and is worth a visit if you're over again. As for the Science Museum they have a habit of swapping exhibits out and also sending them on loan. Stephenson's locomotive the Rocket for example is out on loan at present. They briefly had a Tucker Snocat (of which there have been models on here) but that's gone again.

A lot of their missiles and rocketry is in Wroughton which is a storage site, only open a couple of times a year and even then not very well advertised.
Last time I was there they had an experimental British Rail Maglev. It's a shame they don't have the space for all the collections.

They used to have a good floor on maritime exhibits but they have all gone. Now taken over by computing. I did read they had laser scanned the maritime floor before they moved them.

I've heard the Hermitage museum in St Petersburg have new exhibits swapped in and out of storage every day.

No doubt the Smithsonian is the same.

Doug - thanks very much for your reply. Appreciated.

Was in Hendon last November - and thought I had photographed and seen everything - but no Bloodhound that I recall!
The SD40 is 52 now!
