Meng Me 163B Komet "Yellow 11"

Recommended Posts

After over a year on and off the bench I've finally managed to finish my Meng Me 163B Komet. It was a bit of a mixed bag, with very nice detail but overly ambitious engineering. A fiddly build to say the least.

 

WIP here: http://forum.largescaleplanes.com/index.php?showtopic=50501&hl=meng

 

The only aftermarket bits used were BarracudaCast wheels (a must-have, IMHO) and the HGW microtextile seat harness (not a must-have, but a big improvement nonetheless.) All insignia and aircraft specific markings were masked and painted, while the wee stencils are kit decals. The RLM 74/75/76 are Gunze, with a mishmash of Alclad, Tamiya, Vallejo, Humbrol and Citadel paints for everything else.

 

Questions and constructive criticism are more than welcome.

There's nothing to criticise Tony - it's masterful! And the kit itself looks like a great advance over the old Hasegawa one. I'd love to publish yours on the website if you'd permit me.

Inspiring! What are the four little black spots on the oval shaped access panels on each wing? Are they decals? BTW, did this kit come with a pilot by chance? I need a good seated pilot for my Hase kit.

Amazing finish and paint work, my hat is off to you on this one!  One of the finest Luftwaffe mottle paint jobs I have ever seen.
