Messerschmitt Me163 S-1 "Habicht (1944)
About the Design
Created in 1944 to help train "Komet" pilots, the Me163 S-1 "Habicht" was a engine-less glider adapted from the rocket-plane's "B" version. With its volatile power plant removed, the aircraft had room to accommodate both the student (forward) and flight instructor (rear). And it wouldn't explode if improperly landed.
About the Kit
This highly detailed 1/48 "Master Series" kit contained numerous photo-etched metal parts as well as super-detailed injected molded pieces.
