Product Description
Most famous from the images of the  landing beaches on the Normandy Invasion, the Type M1 VLA (Very Low Altitude) barrage balloon was nevertheless also used in  Sicily and Italy and later on in the Korean War.  It required as little as 10% of the hydrogen gas used by more conventional balloons and was deployed on everything from massive LSTs to diminutive Willys Jeeps - it could be towed at up to 40 miles per hour.  Two balloons flown in tandem, one above the other, could fly as high as 4, 400ft, nearly as much as as a Low Altitude type.

Goodyear alone built at least 3625 of these Type M1's but the British also built condiderable numbers.

In 1/700th scale the model measures  18.3mm in length and each balloon is in two parts for easy cleaning and has a 1mm diameter hole to take a mounting rod.  The set includes THREE M1 balloons.
