CMK - 1/48 Ox for Towing Messerschmitt Me-163B with a Luftwaffe Ground Crew
At the final stages of WW2, the Third Reich faced serious shortage of fuel and to save the maximum amount possible, draft animals were used for taxIIng aircraft on airfields, too. Even the most advanced jet and rocket-powered military aircraft such as the Me 262 or Me 163 were often seen in 1945 being towed like a mere middle ages style ox cart. This set contains a figure of a Luftwaffe groundcrew with a draft animal ready to tow a Me 163 Komet on the airfield (the figures have been sculpted based on a period photo. However, a photo of a Bf 109G being towed by such poor animal exists too). The draft animal offered in our set can be used in any other type of diorama as well.
