Brengun 1/144 Me-163B Komet Photoetch
By Matt Bittner
While the Brengun 1/144 Me-163B kit is very nice out of the box, like any model it can be improved upon. Brengun knows this which is why they tend to release photoetch sets for their own kits.
Because the kit comes with two separate kits, this photoetch release comes with two sets of photoetch for each kit. The majority of the photoetch parts are for the cockpit. You receive a replacement floor and seat; belts for the seat; a control stick; both a front and rear bulkhead; an instrument panel; and an addition for one of the side consoles.
For the exterior you receive flaps which can be displayed opened or closed; different antenna types for the spine (three to choose from); a prop for the nose; a pitot tube; and a ladder for the cockpit.
If you're looking for parts to enhance your Brengun 1/144 Me 163B-1 then by all means pick up this set from them with the knowledge you can add photoetch to both kits supplied in the one box.
My thanks to Brengun for the review photoetch.
