Messerschmitt Me 163 Komet

Messerschmitt Me 163 Komet Book Review

By David L. Veres

Date of Review December 2019 Title Messerschmitt Me 163 Komet
Author Krzysztof Wolowski Publisher Mushroom Model Publications
Published 2019 ISBN 9788365958471
Format 44 pages, hardbound MSRP (USD) $29.00


Rocket-powered, it arguably remains WWII’s most radical operational fighter. Now it enjoys “Spotlight ON” focus in the 21st installment of MMP’s series.

Messerschmitt Me 163 Komet spans 44 color-packed pages. And coverage sports 37 profile plates and four plan views – dorsal and ventral.

Subjects include prototype, development, production, and captured Komets. Author Krzysztof Wolowski even offers views of Me 163D and Me 263V1 extrapolations.

Artwork quality is superb. And introductory notes and captions with color commentary augment illustrations.
