The Me.163 "Komet" was the only operational rocket-powered fighter aircraft during WWII. The Me.163 "A" project codenamed "Project X" started in 1937 under Dr.Alexander Lippisch. It was made for defense purposes using rocket motors. The first Me.163 flew in 1941. There were fuel consumption and engine efficiency problems which limited its range. In August 1943, the Me.163B was developed with further enhancements. Production started in July 1944 and a total of 279 were delivered to the Luftwaffe.

Designed as a rocket powered, high-speed, high-altitude interceptor, the Me 163 was first flown in the summer of 1941.

Easy Model Platinum Collection

The Easy Model "Platinum Collection" range presents highy-affordable, ready-made plastic models of military aircraft. While these models may not have the same "heft" as their diecast siblings, they do offer remarkable value for money. Most importantly, they look perfectly at home alongside diecast modes, allowing collectors to "flesh out" their collection with types and paint-schemes not yet available in diecast.

Easy Model "Platinum Collection" display model airplanes feature:

  • Molded plastic construction.
  • Realistic panel lines, antennas, access panels and surface details.
  • Pad printed markings and placards that won't fade or peel like decals.
  • Spinning propellers.
  • Authentic ordnance loads.
  • Permanently extended landing gear.
