Messerschmitt Me163


A couple of Messerschmitt 163 from Academy. The first picture is the rocket powered Me163. This one is placed on the wheels that it drops after take-off. It uses a ski for the landing. It is towed by a modified tractor. I used the front (modified) of the supplied tractor and made new wheels and the tail. The last two pictures are of the trainer Me163S. It was just a glider lacking an engine. This one was built out of the box, placed on the tractor that is included in the kit.

Heller Messerschmitt Me163


Sometimes you buy a model to later find out that you are not so interested in it.

At a model shhow I found a second hand Heller Me163 really cheap and bought it. Almost immediately I started to wonder why I bought it. Instead of putting it in the stash to linger there forever, I decided to throw it together. I found a French colour scheme I liked and thats it.
