The Me-163 model actually looks quite a bit better than I expected

This is the Flyboys Me-163 which I got from texasrcplanes at a very reasonable price (four day ups delivery).

Here are some pictures, the kit looks pretty awesome for the price!!

The glasswork (polyester resin as usual) is very good and light, given the size of the fuse; the wings are ultralight.

The paint matches perfectly between fuse and wings. The decals are quite nice and not cheesy at all.

The canopy seems good quality, pre-painted with frame and latch pre-installed.

Will post more pics as I get along with the build. For now, I am pretty enthusiastic.
