Hobby Boss Me163 Komet - or two....

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Bit late in the day but I've had an absolute mare trying to get photos out of Flickr via my Android tablet.....

Here we have the HB easy build Komet. Happen to have two kits as the first purchased 2nd hand was missing the decals, options are Luft and RAF so it made sense in my twisted little mind to buy another.

Build started at 11pm uk time on sunday so it'll be the 24 hour option I'm aiming for....

World clock set to GMT so deadline is 11pm BST or 10pm GMT.

On with the builds. They were quickly assembled as promised by HB and took about an hour each. One is in flying mode as part of the undercarraige was eaten by the shed monster, as the cockpit is too shallow for a pilot I've had to black out the glazing.

Didn't fancy the Luftwaffe scheme provided so went for something a little more, er, distinctive.

In this case, courtesy of Peugeot Cherry Red... Flew just the once in that colour scheme according to the pilot

The other one is more conventional, although it will have a yellow underside, first time I've attempted mottling freehand with an airbrush,

This was the state of play at 02:35 BST on Monday. Should make the finish, family and Flickr permitting...

Hi all,

Got back on the Komets about 2pm and this is the current state of play just as I break to get the curry cooked for the family's tea.

HB didn't supply roundels for the top of the wings and the only ones I could find had yellow outer rings, doesn't look too out of place...
