Full Description

The remarkable Messerschmitt Me 163 Komet was the only rocket-powered fighter aircraft to have been operational during WWII. Its design was revolutionary, with its swept back wings, and it had a performance that was unrivalled at the time. In early July 1944 it reached 1,130 km/h (700 mph), an unofficial flight airspeed record unmatched by jet powered aircraft for almost a decade. Despite having little operational effect on the outcome of the war the Me 163 can be rightly considered a significant technological accomplishment.

This 1:6.45 scale model of the Komet is constructed from all wood, using a large, well detailed single plan sheet. The model features a dolly that is released after take off. With a wingspan of 1,265 mm (49.75”) it has a lively performance on the recommended .30 cu. in. 2-stroke, with no viscous tendencies, but it can also be flown very slowly. A moulded canopy and cowl are available, along with a laser cut wood pack. This aeroplane is designed to be powered by a two-stroke engine, but experienced modellers should be able to convert it to electric power (details not supplied, so please send us information if you make a successful EP version!) It is not suitable for beginners, either to plan building or model flying.
