    Howdy guys,

    Well I cant help you with a model of von Brauns rocket other than the one modelincard pointed out, however, and this is somewhat off topic, but an early phophetic design of a rocket used in a movie in 1929. Below is the caption from the Link:

    In 1929, director Fritz Lang released the film Frau im Mond (Woman in the Moon), a prophetic vision of space travel. In it, a group of adventurers travels by rocket to search for gold on the Moon. Their ship is the Friede, a futuristic multi-stage, liquid-fuelled rocket designed for the film by Germany's leading spaceflight pioneer, Hermann Oberth. So advanced was the design that the German government later seized the drawings, models and prints of the film, considering them state secrets. The movie helped generate tremendous interest in rocketry in Germany, and was the most realistic depiction of space flight until the 1950s."


    This model can be found here: http://www.currell.net/models/friede.htm
