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 a little operational effect on the outcome of the war the Me 163 can be rightly considered a significant technological accomplishment.

Designed by Brian Taylor 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.

What’s in a Laser or CNC Cut Wood Pack? – A CNC or laser cut wood pack contains most, if not all, of the intricately shaped parts shown on the plan, which would be difficult or time-consuming to cut out by hand. It does not contain any sheet or strip wood, which you will need to buy separately. Alternatively, you can purchase an Additional Wood Pack, if available. Our Laser or CNC Cut Wood Packs only contain balsa, ply and lite ply and do not include other materials that may be required to complete the model, such as hardwoods, metals and GRP sheet.

What’s in an Additional Wood Pack? – Our Additional Wood Packs contain MOST of the necessary sheet and strip wood needed to complete a model being built from a Sarik Hobbies plan and using the associated laser cut wood pack, if available. We stock a wide range of balsa, ply and spruce in popular sheet and strip sizes but even so we cannot guarantee to be able to supply all the wood necessary to complete each model. So some additional purchases may be required from other modelling wood stockists if not available from Sarik Hobbies. Our Additional Wood Packs only contain balsa, ply and spruce wood in the stock sizes as used by our suppliers and do not include other materials that may be required to complete the model such as hardwoods, metals and GRP sheet.

What’s in a Short Kit? – A short kit usually contains, where available, the plan, the laser/CNC cut wood pack, additional wood pack, canopy, cowl or any other available Glass Fibre or plastic moulded items.
