The Dragon 1/48 Me-163 built out of the box with only the number 9 used from the Kagero sheet.
Painted entirely straight out the tin with the new Humbrol RLM enamels.

Not a perfect build by any means but I am happy with the result.

Thank you very much.

Yikes, the 109!
I will have to build up some courage to post that saga.
I will post a summary in the near future[/quote]

Great build on a tough little kit, I tackled one of these quite a while back, went mad and added cmk cockpit, resin gun bay, fuel tanks and flaps - and added that red thread so I didn't break that tube1!!

Well done!
