This is a 1:32 scale model of the the Rascal, a U.S. Air Force air-to-surface missile designed to destroy enemy air defense installations. Carrying either a conventional or nuclear warhead and with a range of 75 miles, the Rascal was deployed on Strategic Air Command B-47 bombers from 1957-1959. It was replaced by the Hound Dog air-to-surface missile which had a much greater range. Bell Aircraft built and donated this model in 1958.
