Here is my fourth and final Me 163 Komet I will make this year, this one is made from the 1/48 scale Testors/HAWK Me 163 kit.
The entire model was built O.O.B. and that includes using the kits decals.

Les, what did you use for the 81/83 paint?

Cheers, Brent

For the 81/82 colors I used a custom mix of Model Master enamel paints for the RLM 81 and used Xtracolor enamel RLM 82 straight from the tin.
The undersurface color was Model Master enamel RLM 76 lightened a bit with some white.

Terrific job (and photography) on the Comet...the paint is excellent, and the base is cool, too.

Lovely job on the mottling, and very cool pictures too! I have a Dragon Komet that I'm eager to build, but I'm still not sure I'm up to doing the mottling. Sure wish I could do it even half as nice as yours.

One of the all time best set of pics, the period colour one is absolutly perfect,not to mention the one taking off. I've long admired your work this has to be the best to date.
