Me163B

It`s an Academy 1/72 model which i detailed with a partly scratch built cockpit, Eduard interior and exterior parts, CMK control surfaces,part of the engine, wheel dolly. The ladder and fire extinguisher are scratch built. Jeep is Hasegawa which i modified with add-on armor and some bits and pieces. I`s supposed to represent an abandoned/captured airfield with the a/c in the process of refueling. Standard procedure was for the crew to use water under pressure to clean off the tanks before mixing C-Stoff and T-Stoff or extreme chemical reactions would(and have) occurred.

  1. Creative presentation, Matija. The airframe finishes are quite subtle – important I think on such a small model.

  2. Nice little dio, sir….well done.

  3. For what must be a pretty small scene it looks much bigger in the photographs, nicely done.

    Interesting piece and subject Matija, nicely done!

  5. Thank you gents!

  6. Looks great, nice job.

  7. Nice! I’ve got an older kit – I think Heller – is the Academy a re-box of an older product? Hope mine turns out as good!

  8. Nice display Matija, well done.

  9. Amazing work 🙂

  10. I have built this kit so I’d know how small it is. Fantastic work on everything, including the base, really brings the model to life.
