Released at the same time as the THAAD is the Trumpeter kit on the North Korean short range ballistic missile system.
Also known in the West as “Scud Mod. B”, the Hwasong-5 is a short-range tactical ballistic missile that was derived from the Soviet R-17 Elbrus missile. Production was initiated in 1985, and it is estimated that a total of 300 were made until 1991 or 1992. Hwasong-5 missiles were purchased by Iran in 1985, with technology transfer as part of the deal. Iran was able to establish its production line and produced its own, called the Shahab-1.

DPRK Hwasong-5 Short-Range Tactical Ballistic Missile (01058). More than 990 components comprise the kit, to include photo-etched details, metal shaft, copper cable, and pins. Kit highlights:
  • detailed multi-directional slide-molded cab
  • full drive train assembly complete with engine transmission
  • differential housing and suspension units
  • hollow rubber tires with tread pattern
  • clear parts for windshield and side windows
As built, the model’s dimensions are: 384.1mm (L) by 89.5mm (W)

Ah, North Korean ballistic missiles always go down a storm on Armorama... at least it's not another King Tiger! Ideal Christmas present for a loved one perhaps? - maybe paired with the THAAD, I can see them both built and hanging from the lounge ceiling by the end of January.

Well, looks like Trumpeter has planned another year of my life! Too bad it won't be here in time for Santa to bring it to me.

Doesn't look different from their SCUD B model except the paint callout and North Korean decals, and some of the SCUD crew components thrown in.

How topical considering today's launch -and yes, I know that this isn't what was launched...
