U.S. & U.S.S.R. Missile Display (1984)
About the Design
By the mid-1980s, both American and Soviet missile designers had settled on a standard design motif: every missile looked like a rifle bullet. The only exceptions were the few cruise missiles that added some mid-range tactical spice to each country's nuclear arsenals.
About the Kit
The third in Monogram's decade-by-decade series of missile arsenal collections (which included the 1959 U.S. Missiles and 1969 U.S. Space Missiles kits), this kit was -- both aesthetically and chromatically -- the least colorful of the trio. The Soviet side in particular looked like little more than a display of, well, rifle bullets.
This model was built from the original 1984 release.
