So, for me personally, different model, different view point. The Me 163A Komet was primarily aimed at our fallen LSP comrades - especially Larry and Russ. I now dedicate this new project to both our fallen comrades and current LSP members, because without all of your generous help, I would never have been able to start this new project (or many others that I have planned - thank you all).
I still need to assess everything properly, but here is what I have to play with:
Two kits - The Hasegawa 1/32 Bf 109G-4 (Tropical) and G-6. These will be my basis for the conversion.
The cockpit s (and aircrew) bits.
Just getting a general impression here.
Some things will be brand new, but other will be updates. I have to decide what level of detail to go for here...too much and I will have to make both cockpits from scratch (plus it will cost too much to make and sell). Too little and the modellers will be disappointed.
Instruments; I have three options here - modified kit IM items, resin with blank dials and decals, or PE brass and decals. If I am going to go for a straight forward conversion set using the kit parts, then I should go with the former of the three.
I intend to make new seats for both cockpits, which I may sell as separate items.
More to come when I have had time to think things through a little more.
