  • Did you mean the Me 263 or the Me 163? 

    Mike (x2) has pointed out the 1/48 Me 263 from CM which was a continuation of the Me 163 design with a longer fusealge for more fuel, a two stage motor to allow a cruising speed and most importantly... landing gear.  I've built the Huma 1/72 Me 263 and I understand that Special hobby has also released a 1/72 Me 263.  I do not believe there is a 1/32 version.

    Hasegawa is about to re-release a 1/32 kit of the Me 163.  In 1/48 scale dragon models has the Me 163 and I believe there was an Eduard model and a Revell kit as well in that scale.

  • Joe, here is a picture showing the Me 263 (grey one in front) with the Me 163 and the me 163s trainer (two seater) in the background (all 1/72 scale).  The Me 263 only made it to prototype stage with about a dozen more in production when the war ended.  The Me 163 actually saw operational use with a couple of units.

  • Thanks Mike!  The Me 163 is one of my favorites and I have more in my stash to be built yet! Big Smile [:D]

  • I have one of the 1/48 Czech Model ME-263 kits in my stash.  I started on it, then got really frustrated with it and put it in the spares box. Banged Head [banghead]

    Hi Daywalker,

    I`ve got a couple of these salted away for a rainy day and they look so nice in the box. But judging by your comment, are they as bad as I`ve heard?

  • Gary-

    Gluing the wing parts together leaves huge gaps and the fuse has an awful twist in it that I have been unable to get straight.  The resin parts are very nice, but the main gear bay looks to be a poor fit.  It could just be my five thumbs per hand, but it seems to me the worst fitting kit I have ever attempted.

  • Nice work Dave!  I bet those are some tiny kits!
