Me163B-1a >> RAF VF241


Recommended Posts

  • Administrators

Hi all,

 

Here's my finished Me163B-1a in RAF colors.

Based on these references:

 

http://robdebie.home.xs4all.nl/me163/vf241.htm

 

In reality this particular captured example had it's MK108 cannons removed and also it's rocket engine.

However: at what point this happened isn't to be found. This plane was being towed and tested as a glider.

 

I used the Hasegawa Eduard PE set to spice things up. As all these parts seem to fit this kit really well, I can really recommend it.

Also used the Master models pitot tube and added some missing details.

All can be found here:

Very sweet build Jeroen!  I must admit that it took me a few seconds to get used to the RAF markings on a Luftwaffe aircraft, but that was all for the better as it made me study it more closely.  I love the subtle shading and scratches etc - beautifully done.

Looks terrific Jeroen!  Congrats on a getting it finished!

 

Regarding the roundels, I would leave it as is, since you have the guns, etc. still in, I would say that the model represents it's state just after it was repainted, and that the roundel fading happened later after more use and the guns were removed, etc. ;)
