I've been in a rut too. I'm going to change my entry for this GB from a Meteor to an Academy 1/72 Me 163B. Definitely an interceptor !

Hopefully a quick build of this nice little kit will get my motors running again.

Cheers

Tony

I'm just taking it one GB at a time.

That should be a relatively easy kit to get you out of the rut.

I've made some progress on my Komet. It's not the easiest build but it's pretty good. It's ready to prime now.

Cheers

Here it is with the canopy masked, ready for priming. It needed a little filler here and there, but basically it's pretty good.

I just remembered to add the leading edge slats before I painted it. This time I chose to mask it with Braunviolett. After the first coat there were some areas near the wing roots where sanding marks were visible. I used a finer grade of paper to remove them then resprayed it. Since this was the primer, I then went over it with flat black preshading of panel lines and lightly sprayed over these again. I finished with a lightened colour for the middle of each panel. It's really hard to see in the photo though.

I think next time I'll prime with light grey or white as I normally do.

Next up is RLM 82 splinter camo.

Cheers

The 163 is looking good there Tony!
