This is a genuine original World War II Messerschmitt Me-163 Komet. Surrendered to the British by the Luftwaffe at Husum AB. Shipped by the RAF to RAE Farnborough, then moved in 1945 to Brize Norton. Stored for decades with the Rocket Propulsion Establishment at Westcott. Finally moved to the RAF Museum Cosford in 1980. A lengthy restoration was conducted from 2000-2005, the result of which is most impressive.
