Lippisch Li-163A, FINISHED page 1
« on: February 26, 2019, 01:39:34 am »
Today I received the Lippisch P.115 kit (1/72, Unicraft Models), it is like a turbojet Me-163 Komet.

My plan is to build it as forward swept wing glider, with a low wing and rear cockpit. ;D

Thanks!

I was wondering why is there a single step in the fuselage resin instead of 2: cockpit and air intake.
Seeing the very long clear thermoformed part (canopy + back to paint), I understand:

I will make it different, using the in intake step as canopy step... ;)

After cutting and gluing, the model is almost finished!
"Just" PSR work to perform...

Second sanding: done. But 2 holes appeared, so I will repeat a third putty and sanding.

Not a Me-163!: better!

Well done Tophe.  It has character.  I like it.
