Meng 1/32 Me 163B Komet "Yellow 11"

By Tony Bell

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.

Build thread is in the forums.

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.
