You think correctly, it is indeed the Messerschmitt Me.163 Komet

Control is yours!

Cheers TC.

I found it during searches for challenges and had put it in my folder for future use - bad luck mate.

No worries, I hoped it wouldn't hang about as I'm heading out now to take over some house/pet sitting duties for the rest of the month and it will take a while to transfer my enough of my stuff over and set up there, then hook into their BB connection, so I hope some others will participate today! Catchya later!

P.S. It looks like there's some reasonably modern electronics there, is that a mod to an older airframe or original fit? I like the pilot's personal aircon

It is indeed a mod to an older aeroplane.

Now you have me a little confused.

Only one engine type is fitted

However you take the win but I have found it in several publications as the An-2-100. Maybe the designation has changed.

All yours.

Spade grip with firing button suggests WW2 fighter/fighter-bomber.
