Default Me 163

Does anyone have a set of Gus Morfis ME 163 plans that I could copy or buy? Thanks!

For someone who cranked out as many designs as he did, they are surprisingly scarce.

From what I understand Mr. Morfis may have passed away. From conversation with my local laser cutter, Mrs Morfis had been handling the business after he had been in poor health. At present she isn't doing business anymore. You might try contacting Eddie at Lazer-works.com. He cuts kits for a bunch of Morfis designs and might have something on hand.

Thanks, Eddie doesn't cut the ME 163. I knew that Gus had passed just hoping I might get lucky!

You can get lucky. I have a mint plan.I have about 21 plans and had more but they seem to have disappeared over time. here is the list, P-38 - Lavochkin la-5/LA7,
Curtis P-40B Martin Baker M.B.3, Hawker Hurricane, De Havilland D.H 8 Comet. Dewoitine-D.520 , Grumman F6F,, Republic P-47, Messerschmitt ME-262. Arado AR-234b
Ryan FR-1 Fireball, Vought F4-U Corsair, Kawasaki Hein (Tony, Hawker Sea fury, F-86 Sabre, Grumman Bearcat F8F, Hawker Typhoon, Mig 15, Hawker Hurricane, Polikarpov I-153, And last but not least the ME-163 Comet.
Most of these were done in the early 90s and while I never competed in any combat matches they were all really good flying models. These plans are new and can be copied. I can see about having a copy made for the ME 163 but would not be available till after the holiday period.
