GasPatch Models 1/48 Me 163B Komet.

Wie ein floh…. Me-163 Komet B-1a

Hi friends, 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[...]
