Nice right side view showing the Komet in three pieces. The wings are neatly stored in wheeled crates, while the fuselage rides on the take-off dolly. Contrary to the museum's other Komet, this one shows some roughness (with regards to panel lines, ill-fitting access panels and small dents) typical of wartime Komets. In other words it does not look 'over-restored' to me, and I like it better this way. A 1. Staffel badge (Baron von Munchausen riding a cannon bullet) is painted on the nose, but chances are small that this is original, since this is a Husum-captured II/JG400 aircraft. The skid is painted in a standard black or dark grey color.
