Nice rocket, unfortunately frame cannot be used as reference. Despite sign telling it was built according original documents, difference from period photos is wast. First, rocket should be located in frames, not wobble freely. The whole idea of frame is to be used as both, transport cradle, and launcher, giving some sort of direction to the rocket to be launched. So originally, mount was much more complicated than this.

Funny, I was thinking the same thing when I saw the picture: "Wow, I don't want to be anywhere near this thing when it launches -its not supported!" or words to that effect. Clearly the museum got it wrong and was too embarrassed/arrogantly stupid to admit as much. My teenaged daughter could have built a more convincing replica!
