Any issues were of my own making and that was only a slight misalignment of the Cannon Cartridge Ejector Chute which caused a little fit issue with the wings.

This aircraft was built as part of the “Imperial German Air Service / Luftwaffe Group Build May 1st, 1910, to Present Day” group build.
Maj. Wolfgang Spate was the commanding officer of EKdo 16 (Erprobungskommando 16 or Test Command 16).
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[...]

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[...]

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[...]
