Wolfgang Späte's signature aircraft.
After flying Bf 109s with JG 54, Major Wolfgang Späte headed a testing program for the rocket-powered Me 163 Komet. Späte's Komet had a distinctive red paint scheme which resembled the Red Baron's famous Fokker Dr. I. While other pilots would have been flattered by the comparison, Späte personally thought it was too ostentatious. This limited edition kit features new tail fuselage teardrop-type cover parts (left and right) and the following marking option: Luftwaffe EKdo 16, Hauptmann Wolfgang Späte, Code: PK & QL, May 1944.
