Phantoms of Peenemünde

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,

these are professor Alexander Lippisch designs which led to the (in)famous Me 163 Komet.

The DFS 194 by PM Model is more a toy than a kit, so it required quite some extra work.

The Me 163A from Special Hobby in its later reincarnation is still quite OK, and also includes the Scheuch-Schlepper tractor, which is pretty nice little add-on (some says it is actually Scheuch-Schlepper kit packed with an ugly airplane).

I'm sure I'm not the only boy in the town eagerly waiting for new Valiant Wings book on (not only) the Me 163 to complete the whole family.

Cheers,

Libor

Very interesting build about Alexander Lippisch's studies and interests.

Very well represented with your "pre Me-163" models.

Great job by the way !!!

I wish I had a quarter of your talent and skill, Libor. I'm jelly!

I'm not a plastic kit builder. I'm a styrene butcher.

I have these to do but I don't think that they will be anywhere near as good as yours - brilliant effort.

Can you please tell us what you had to do to the DFS 194?

Thanks gents once again!

For John: briefly - cockpit from scratch, new landing skid, new canopy, some rescribing and scratchbuilt details like Pitot, probes etc.

Cheers
