Messerschmitt Me163 Komet (49.75")

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 had a performance unrivalled at the time. In early July 1944 it reached 1,130 km/h (700 mph), an unofficial flight airspeed record unmatched by turbojet-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 rocket-powered fighter is constructed from all wood from a large, well-detailed, single plan sheet. The model features a take-off dolly that is released after take-off. A moulded canopy and cowl are available. With a wingspan of 1,265mm (49.75”) it has a lively performance, on a recommended .30 cu. in. 2-stroke, with no viscous tendencies, but can also be flown very slowly. Not for beginners.
