Wie ein floh…. Me-163 Komet B-1a
April 18, 2016 in Aviation
Still collecting myself from Moson madness, so i thought I’d share a small model that i’ve finished a while ago. Revell’s komet, a rocked powered German jet. Small amount of parts, I thought that that would be a super easy build due to a small number of parts, but not so. Despite the installation of CMK cockpit and skid-bay was not that difficult, mating the fuselage with the tail section and the nose cone was almost impossible. So tons of putty was used to correct the shape of the nose, same story with the tail section, of course, all the details were destroyed in the process. I had to recreate them back. From there on, everithing was easier, Model was painted with Gunze paints, decals from Peddinghaus were a bit tricky to place as they have to be cut out individually, but not problematic. Weathering with AK washes was restrained to a minimum as the life span of this small AC was really short. So… that’s it really… 🙂 Enjoy the photos.
