1/72 Anigrand Lippisch P.13b

Gallery Article by Thomas Brückelt on Nov 12 2018



The Lippisch P.13b was a design from November 1944. It was planned as a ramjet fighter powered by coal.  Two MK 108 were planned for armament.

The resin kit from Anigrand is very simple and can also be built by modelers with less experience.  I added some walls behind the intake to close gaps there. Further five adapted sheets make the outlet looking more interesting. In the cockpit I added a thrust lever and a gunsight.

On the outside I fitted an antenna made from a thin wire, and the pitot tube. The gun barres were made from a canula.

The model was painted with brush and sponge. I used emanels from Humbrol and Revell.  Before I attached the decals I sprayed gloss clear varnish over the model.  After the decals were fitted I sealed it with flat clear varnish.  The most decals are from the decal sheet "Messerschmitt Me 163 B Komet" from Print Scale.  Further markings come from Eduard (stencils for FW 190).

The simple Anigrand-kit was built within 4 days. Because of its unique shape the P.13b is nice addition for my project-fighter collection.
