Hasegawa 1/32 Me 163B

IMG_4770 IMG_4768 IMG_4764 IMG_4759For an older kit, it still builds up nice, and the Eduard P/E set adds quite a bit of detail to the cockpit. Yes I know the Meng kit is newer, faster, stronger…er wait, I was just watching the ‘Six Million Dollar Man’! Anyway, I did add some scratch work to the exhaust nozzle as Hasegawa kind of missed the boat on that. (I have seen the Meng kit and they did too!) I did sand down the cheese cloth ailerons and rudder a little and wish I had sanded more…next time, right? I replaced the antenna and pitot tube with wire as the plastic was just a bit too thick. The landing skid was a bit of a hassle as they really only let you buil it in the extended position unless you want to do some surgery (I didn’t!)IMG_4755 IMG_4756. The RLM 76 is Testors enamel but for the other two colors(RLM 81 & 82) I used the new or almost new Vallejo Air brush ready paints. I did have to add a drop of water to thin these just a bit. (I used a special water for this, the dirty brush cleaning stuff!). The decals are from the kit and for Hase. decals…they went on easy!
