Revell 1/40 Little John

This is the Little John missile and launcher from the 1958 Revell Tactical Missile set. Also included were four Dart wire guided anti-tank missiles. The Little John launcher depicted must be from a test site as the ones actually deployed had two wheels at the rear and that thing hanging down from the front of the launch ramp also had one. The Little John could carry both conventional and nuclear warheads and was inertially guided. It was deployed to Europe and the last ones were only phased out in the 70's. The kit is very basic and full of mold seams and ejection pin marks, but cleaned up and with careful assembly is a good representation of this weapon. The decals were completely gone, so I cobbled together some markings from my spares.
