The Noris website has the models for around $45.00 to $50.00 for the kit and then shipping. The Ariane on the website lists as around $43.00 while Apogee has the model for $68.70 plus S/H. If you have a contact in Germany that can ship to you and is willing to mark the items as a gift, and you buy two or three, then it might be worth your while. You will still have the issues of language to deal with but you might save a little money, plus you have the advantage that you can get kits that are not presently imported.

Dunno about the Natter, but the A-9 flies great on a D12-3.
I have made my own scratch built Wasserfalls in BT-60 and BT-50 sizes. They fly great on C6-3 and A10-3 respectively.

Default The Natter

As soon as I finish up this years major challenge ( a functional Apollo lander) , the next thing on my "Im to stupid to not do it " list is a Natter .

Years ago I tried this with mechanics and primitive electronics with a rather un eventful crash .

1. send up the Natter with both a centeral motor and strap ons
2. at apogee fire some mini rockets out the nose
3. Seperate and deploy
a. the tail
b. the nose
c. An action figure

So I want to simulate a natter flight

I think history shows... you already did...

Not sure if there are bonus points for scale crashing, though...

If anybody is interested here is a link that discusses German WWII rockets and other secret weapons. http://greyfalcon.us/restored/Histo...%20Rocketry.htm
