Me 163B 'White 42'

This photo shows four dismantled Komets, possibly awaiting shipment.The photo appears to be from a series of pictures taken in Germany. Most likely 'White 42' is among them. Three of them can be seen to have checkered wheels, likely red and white like the surviving example displayed next to the Chino Me 163B replica. The middle two Komets can also been seen to be MG 151/20 equiped, with the gun barrels projecting from the leading edge. The middle two have some sort of cover taped over their canopies. Note the lack of tailwheel covers.
