SH72183 Messerschmitt Me 163A with Scheuch-Schlepper 1/72 SH72183 kit was already announced in September 2009 but due to the production difficulties the kit is ready just now. The Messerschmitt Me 163A was the first rocket-powered aircraft produced in series in the world. Series aircraft were used for testing and for the training of pilots destined for the fighter version Me 163B. The rocket powered Komet took off using a two-wheel jettisonable dolly and landed on a skid retracted from under the fuselage. Therefore, a special towing vehicle, the Scheuch-Schlepper, was used for moving the aircraft on the airfield. Two methods were used.; either the aircraft was held up by mechanical arms, or by bags inflated with compressed air. The kit contains a frame with Me 163A parts, a frame with parts for the Scheuch-Schlepper, an injection moulded canopy, and photo-etched parts. Decals are offered for three machines. One of them exceeded a speed of 1000 km/h, while another is interesting in that underslung wing rockets were tested on it. Messerschmitt Me 163A V-4 W. Nr. 163 0000001/KE+SW, základna Peenemünde.
