This is an MRC 36342 1:72 Scale Me163B1a Komet II/JG400. This 1/72 scale aircraft is a pre-assembled, Platinum Collectible, Messerschmitt Me.163 B-1a II/JG400. The Me.163 was the only operational rocket-powered fighter aircraft during WWII. The first Me.163 flew in 1941, but its range was limited due to fuel consumption and engine efficiency problems. In August 1943, the Me.163 B was developed with further enhacements. Production started in July 1944, with a total of 279 delivered to the Luftwaffe. Part of Easy Model's WWII Aircraft Series, this pre-assembled model has fine panel lines, detailed cockpit, precision decals, accurate paint scheme and an impressive display stand. Unlike diecast metal, finer detail can be molded in plastic, and this Easy Model WWII Aircraft Series aircraft is sure to be a valuable addition to any 1/72 scale collection or diorama.
