Custom-Scale follows up with another release on the Enzian surface-to-air missile, this time with a kit of its designated production version, the E-4.
Developed by Messerschmitt AG in 1944, the Enzian was a ground-to-air missile, having aerodynamic design features similar to that of the Messerschmitt Me 163 (Komet). Design specifications called for the use of much wood as possible in order to conserve on strategic materials. There were four models, designated E-1 to E-4, with the last being the planned production model that was designed to use an improved rocket engine.

Custom-Scale’s Deutsche Flakrakete Enzian E-4 auf Gestell (35075) is a full resin kit rendered in 1/35 scale.

Hello All, I have been in touch with Custom-Scale and have been advised that the photos shown were of the working sample. Rest assured that this is not the case for the kit that is offered for sale. Updated photos are now posted. Cheers, Tat
