Me-163 Komet, 3d printed in Grey


The Messerschmitt Me 163 Komet was a German rocket-powered interceptor aircraft. Designed by Alexander Lippisch, it is the only rocket-powered fighter aircraft ever to have been operational and the first piloted aircraft of any type to exceed 1000 km/h (621 mph) in level flight. Its performance and aspects of its design were unprecedented. German test pilot Heini Dittmar in early July 1944 reached 1,130 km/h (700 mph), an unofficial flight airspeed record unmatched by turbojet-powered aircraft for almost a decade. Over 300 Komets were built, but the aircraft proved lackluster in its dedicated role as an interceptor and destroyed between 9 and 18 Allied aircraft against 10 losses. Aside from combat losses many pilots were killed during testing and training.

Me-163 Komet Set
These little jets are a one pass unit and were actually assigned by the Luftwaffe to a Liephiem AB in Southern Bavaria in Germany. On the wall in the visitor center is painting of them. I have several older 1-700 scale ones from years ago and they are the same size as the HBG jets. I super glued mine to German roundels because they are so small and really easy to lose. I highly recommend this unit for attacking B-24s and B-17s.
