Truck with German V-2 Missile and launch pad 1942-1945.
Vintage, 60s-70s, handmade model made with great passion. Prpbably made in the Soviet Union. The V-2 “Vergeltungswaffe” technical name Aggregat 4 (A4), was the world’s first long-range ballistic missile. The missile, powered by a liquid propellant rocket engine, was developed in Germany during World War II as a “revenge weapon” designated to attack Allied cities in retaliation for the Allied bombing of German cities. The V-2 rocket also became the first man-made object to fly into space by crossing the Kármán line with its vertical launch on June 20, 1944. First space rocket?
It is amazing what a work and craftsmanship has gone into this model. It is made of zinc sheet brass and metal. Everything can be moved or removed, moving, open, standing, driving, etc.
Trailer can be disconnected. Front axle of the trailer rotates in 2 places. The rear support arms can be folded out and the support legs can be rotated downwards. The 4 truck doors can be opened and have a door handle. The missile tilts up until the missile is above the launch pad. There are 2 sliding systems to represent the hydraulic cylinders. Once upright, the clamps can be released and the rocket is on the launch block. There is a locking pin between the rear rocket wings to ensure that the rocket does not fall off the trailer.

Size boxes: 63x43cm./25×16.9inch.
Cold war German training 102 planes and helicopters. 1950-1977. 4 boxes complete with original frames and all planes, a must for the purist plane collector. USA, CCCP, Germany, France, England and Canada models.
Each box has 4 hook closures and 2 locks and can be opened on 2 sides. Beautiful sky blue sprayed on the inside, planes sit on metal pins with top and bottom rubber discs to keep them in place, all planes are also sprayed in shadow on the bottom plate so that everything comes back in the right place. The shadows have numbers that correspond to the frame on the lid.
The models are official and original ID models, which are manufactured under state supervision by the authorities of the German Ministry of Defense. All 102 models are named and arranged by number and NATO code and sorted in one of the four large wooden boxes.
In the 4 marked boxes are all types of military aircraft to identify “friend or foe”. Each case has an ingenious one-board-two-cover system, always one side at a time. Inside the chests are all types of military aircraft and helicopters from the USSR, US, UK, Canada, France and Germany that were active during the Cold War in the North Atlantic region.
The models are arranged in 2 areas; the “North Atlantic Treaty Organization” – NATO – and the communist “Treaty of Cooperation and Mutual Assistance” – previously referred to as “Warsaw Pact”.
Most recognition models (the smaller ones) are made of metal and have a great shape and design. The larger items also look nice and are made of composite material, which improves the portability (weight) of the boxes. There are also models made of metal and composite material. The set – supposed to be current until the end of the seventies – is very special.
It is a great set that you will probably never encounter again. Boxes are 63x43x13cm./ 25×16.9×5.1inch. Total weight is 34500 grams, 34.5 kilos/76lb.. I do not know the scale of the aircraft, the largest is a CCCP An-22 aircraft of 27.5cm./10.8inch. and the smallest is a USA OH-58 “kowa” Helicopter.

Desktop ornament futuring the heavy Big Bertha howitzer. Development started in 1906, when a contract was placed in Pilsen by the Austro-Hungarian high command at Skoda-Werke to make a weapon capable of penetrating the concrete fortresses built in Belgium and Italy. Development continued until 1909. The first prototype was finished in 1910 and fired secretly.
Eight Mörsers were loaned to the German army and were first deployed on the Western Front in the early part of World War I. They were used together with the Krupp 42 cm howitzer (“Big Bertha”) to destroy the Belgian fortresses around Liège (Battle of Liège), Namur (Fortified Position of Namur) and Antwerp (Forts Koningshooikt, Kessel and Broechem). While the weapon was used on the Eastern, Italian and Serbian fronts until the end of the war, it was only used on the Western front at the beginning of the war.
In 1915, ten howitzers were used to support the Austro-Hungarian-German invasion of Serbia led by German General August von Mackensen.

Das Kapital, also called Capital. A Critique of Political Economy (in German: Das Kapital. Kritik der politischen Oekonomie) was first published in 1867 by Karl Marx. Capital, Volume I (1867) was published in Marx’s lifetime, but he died in 1883 before completing the manuscripts for Capital, Volume II (1885) and Capital, Volume III (1894) which friend and collaborator Friedrich Engels edited and published as the work of Marx. The first translated publication of Das Kapital was in Imperial Russia in March 1872. It was the first foreign publication and the English edition appeared in 1887. Despite Tsarist censorship proscribing “the harmful doctrines of socialism and communism”, the Russian censors considered Das Kapital as a “strictly scientific work” of political economy, the content of which did not apply to monarchic Russia, where “capitalist exploitation” had never occurred and was officially dismissed, given “that very few people in Russia will read it, and even fewer will understand it”. Nonetheless, Marx acknowledged that Russia was the country where Das Kapital “was read and valued more than anywhere”. For instance, the Russian edition was the fastest selling as 3,000 copies were sold in one year while the German edition took five years to sell 1,000, therefore the Russian translation sold fifteen times faster than the German original.
