Built back around 1989, () my Testors version was issued in 1982. The aircraft is the well-known rocket-powered interceptor, the Me163 Komet, in 1/48 scale. This kit had only about 25 pieces and the instruction sheet had good four-view dra[...]
In my collection of built models as well as in my kit stack, I have few items from German aviation. But that's not because I don't like it, but because I usually have difficulty to paint german schemes. I decided to built this Hasegawa ME-163 Ko[...]
Here comes my Me 163 Komet in 1/72 with Eduard Set #SS256 an two Preiser Figures. The little shelter is from Airmodel.de. The Academy kit is easy to build, but has some inaccuracies I discoverd to late. The tube attachment on the left wing is no[...]
I happened recently to re-read some of the material on Hanna Reitsch's flights in the Me 163 B. On YouTube I then revisited her famous description of 'riding on a canon-ball' in an interview and clip that related her 5th flight in the Komet (one[...]
While I DID put up the pictures of the finished Komet, the diorama was not complete,needed a few touches. Primarily a figure to tie it up. I found a beautiful ReedOak figure and i made some adjustments on the base and the position of the Komet.
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 du[...]
Hello everybody, after a long time here is the last one I've finished! It is the model That I was awarded with on the April best of show model.
It is a great model, but it took me some extra time, because I added some detail in the cockpit and [...]
Also hiding in my cardboard box, was this old "Flea". While I did beef up the interior, you can't see anything because of the thick clear canopy. As usual, another trip down memory lane.
I built this diorama to depict Major Wolfgang Spate's komet On his first mission in the komet his crew had painted his plane bright red in honor of Manfred Von Rictoffen (red baron). Wolfgang was not amused and after an unsuccessful mission he[...]
Such a nice number. I'll "Rocket" over the top with this hasegawa 1/32 Komet I did last year. For it's age it's still a cool kit. Pretty much kept to what was in the box, except for making a couple of "Luftstanders" to disply the kit-supplied ro[...]
