I want one!!!!!!!!!!

One question though - why is it done in green and brown when the German camouflage was green and grey? (Schwarzgrun and Grungrau)

I did like Scott's comment - that it's barking mad for speed

That's 'black-green' and 'grey green' RLM colours - but they certainly weren't 'sand and spinach' a la Battle of Britain RAF colours

black-green RLM70 and grey-green RLM74 wer not used in combination, it was rather RLM70-71 in the early war for bombers or a combination of RLM74-75-76 for fighters.

Since the Me-163 only got active in JG400 late '44, we can best assume that the combination RLM81 (Braun-violet) RLM83 (Dunkelgrun) was used on the Gelbe 13.

True - but definitely NOT 'sand and spinach'

Should've made it a pusher prop version. Don't quite like the prop at the nose, the real ME163 is rocket propelled.


EDF would make the rear hole too big.

Same with turbine.


Tractor/puller prop makes it look funny.


Pusher prop is most scale looking as it 'disappears' in the air when spun and because of the pusher configuration, no 'cheating' with prop wash over control surfaces.

EDF is hardly possible due to teh lack of an inlet.
The little propellor on the original was used to drive a constant speed generator to provide electrics.

Not sure if a pusher would make it more effective and manouverable than the prop up frone, at least it is more "scale" with a propellor up front allthough it appears huge compared with the original.

With electric motors the prop 'disappears' anyway (ic engines sort of spoil the look with a cylinder head poking out). Any Komet I've seen has the prop up front for aerodynamic reasons - remember it's basically between a delta planform and a flying wing

Also bear in mind that the front end is considerably fatter (allowing larger motors to be fitted) and also you need to keep as much weight forward as you can - having it rear mounted would lead to all sorts of trimming problems
