I'm planning on buying this thing to put it in my house:
No, seriously, I am.
The current owner knows little about it. He calls it both a rocket and a bomb. He thought it was for practice. The internals are empty, but that doesn't mean it always was like that. the top is steel, the rest aluminum. Height is just a bit more than 2.10m.
It is quite obviously from Germany. Googling on what's written on it turns up nothing, also the vague G-H-G on the top doesn't google well.
Can anyone tell me:
-what type it is
-whether it is a bomb, ground launched rocket or plane carried missile (the spiral paint job and shape of the fins make an external fuel tank unlikely to me)
-what it was used for (drop practice, launch practice, stability mockup...)
-how old it is
-how rare it is
The current asking price is a bit high for me, but I'd love to put it in my house. I've got a closed veranda in which it would fit nicely and hopefully not rust too much (on winter mornings, moisture will settle on the cold metal and there is a serious temperature difference summer/winter, day/night, but at least it's not out in the rain and bird poo).
Any info is welcome! The only thing looking a bit like this is a V2 (A4), which is much larger and not really something I'd want in my house...In fact I don't think I'd want any Nazi stuff in my house, but as I said I think that this thing is newer and only shares the looks and country with the V2.
