Me 163 kits and accessories

This page shows an extensive list of Me 163 kits and accessories, with 268 entries so far, containing more than 50 unique Komet models! Some list entries have their own page showing box art or model pictures, or additional information. The list was started by the extensive list provided by Andres Valdre from Estonia. He has an extensive database on German aircraft kits. The list was then further extended with information from Ruediger Landmann, Marvin Howell and Paul Gold.

If you want some advice on which Me 163B model to buy, the situation is rather simple. In 1/72, no model beats the Academy model. In 1/48 scale, buy the Trimaster/Dragon/Revell of Germany model, again by far the best in this scale. In 1/32 scale the brand-new Meng Model kit is the best choice.
