I purchased a 1/24 scale V-2 from Spacemonkey models and I build G scale train cars. I am using these pictures to make a G scale V-2 transport car for my train load collection. I searched many sights to find these type of pictures. I didn't find and showing a railcar to field sights for launching. So this is the only one I have found.
