Here is my 1/72 scale HobbyBoss Me 163B built from the easy assembly kit.

The model was built straight from the box with the only changes being different markings from my spare decals box.
I used Xtracolor RLM 82 enamel and a custom mix of Model Master enamel paints for the RLM 81, undersurfaces were Model Master RLM 76 with some white added to it to lighten it slightly.
Airbrush used to paint the Me 163 was an Iwata Revolution BR and the entire camo scheme was painted free handed.

On to the pics...

..the Komet made a safe landing and is waiting for the Schue-Schlepper.

To post an image of your models, you will first need to find somewhere to host your photos on the Internet. Your ISP will often give you a limited amount of free web storage, and other online photo storage is also available.

To post a link or an image, simply type in the URL (web address) of the destination page or image. The URL will appear as a link (for an HTML link) or an image (if you link direct to a .jpg file) when posted. You can use the Preview facility to see how your message looks before posting to Plastic Pix.

Please try to keep image sizes to 800 pixels wide or less, as larger sizes will be too big to fit on many computer screens. Also, file sizes should be kept to around 100kb or less, otherwise download may be very slow.
