Our 1950s Bloodhound Missile Set comprises a ‘Bristol’ Bloodhound Guided Missile complete with Launching Ramp and Loading Trailer in approximate 1:76 scale. The warhead is towed by a 1:76 scale Land Rover Series 1 with Canvas Back in RAF dark blue livery. The RAF roundel features on the missile itself and on the Land Rover’s front wing. This intricate set is presented in retro style packaging featuring the extensive model detail in full colour. Our Oxford model incorporates many of the details of the ‘real thing’ which was considered very advanced for its era.
The Bristol Bloodhound was developed in the 1950s as a suface to air missile and as part of the RAF it formed the UK’s main air defence weapon into the 1990s. It had an overall length of nearly 9 metres, a wingspan of nearly three metres and a range of 190 km at a speed of Mach 2.7. Its guidance system was classed as a semi-active radar homing system. The missile was launched from a fixed installation launch platform. The last RAF missile Squadron stood down in 1991 but some overseas countries continued to deploy Bloodhound until the end of the decade.
