Base Kit
Hasegawa 1/32 Me-163 Komet
Provided by: Master Model - Website:

A great aftermarket product from the Polish company Master Model, Air Master series: an Me-163B Armament and Pitot Tube set. Inside the plastic baggie you get 2 brass Mg 151 machine gun barrels and a brass pitot tube. These three aftermarket details will make the Hasagawa kit even better. The Hasagawa kit’s pitot tube is much heavier and too bulky looking. The one from Master Model is longer and more delicate and truer to scale.

The Hasagawa kit does not have guns but includes the holes in the wings for them. Scratchbuilding mounts for the MM guns will be required, and the results will be well worth the effort. In the photos, I have placed some clay in the wing to stick the barrels into so everyone would see the effect.

Overall, this would make a great kit even better. I would like to thank Mater Model and IPMS/USA for the chance to review this kit.
