Rebuilding of my old Hasegawa Me 163B from the seventies.

 

Scribing of panellines, some rivets and detailing of the rocket engine C-stoff tank opening. Scratching some of the parts that had gone missing over the years.Eduard PE was used for the cockpit and I did some scratch build details, reworking the kit pilot seat...

 

Messerschmitt Me 163B - PK+QP - WNr. 310054 Versuchsnummer V45 - Erprobungskommando 16, Bad Zwischenahn spring 1944.

Fantastic Paintjob. You took full advantage of the monochrome scheme. Because of that and the beautiful paneling the Komet looks really interesting and there is no way to be distracted from the powerful shape of the bird.

Thank you! Yes this was the one big challenge with this build. To get an all dull light grey plane to somehow come 'alive'.

 

So i decided to go for a more detailed version of 'preshading' using the different materials (aluminium/wood/canvas) as an undercoat and then try not to cover everything with the grey overcoat...

And I'm quite happy with the result using this technique, together with the blue black wash from MIG Ammo, it gives the surface some 'life'.
