Me 163B Komet "Like a fly, but oho!" - 1/32 Meng


Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Here's my vision of the this WW II rocket powered "german wonder weapon". The kit is quite good, only with some fit problems (nothing really serious). I used wood grain decals, from Uschi van der Rosten (excellent) and Alclad II paints. The dispplay was home made, with pine wood plate painted with translucid acrylic varnish, mahogany color, with the Komet squadron 2/JG400 logo laser engraved, by a good friend of mine. Hope you like it.

thanks.

Wow! Amazing work. This is why I keep looking at this forum... Would love to se a w-in-p for this build.

I have this kit in my stash - can I specifically ask for your experience/advice wrt to the side windows? I've heard that their fit isn't great. Did you use aftermarket replacements? Did you have to use filler/sand etc? Anything you'd suggest?

I'm going to hold out for the RB Scheuch Schlepper before starting mine

Thanks for sharing

Hi Doug,

 

Sorry about the late reply! About the side windows, I can tell you I didn't find major problems. I glued them with a special optical glue, that dries with ultraviolet light, and stays invisible. The only aftermarkets I used were the fantastic Uschi van der Rosten wood grain decals. For me, nothing compares with the wooden effect they bring to the model. The only major problem I found in the kit, was the wings junction to the fuselage. It takes a lot of sanding and filling with acrylic Vallejo putty.

best regards
