Interesting site thanks for the link ,

Amazing how power plants of this size could develop so much powerful thrust , they seem to be not much bigger than a small capacity four cylinder diesel .

I find it amazing that the instrument panel on this ground breaking plane was straight forward plywood:

AWWW... DUDE! One of the Dogfights guys was tearing his hair out trying to find a diagram like that of that engine last week. unfortunately the episode was sent out a few days ago.

Very nice site! Very interesting, who knew so much was going on inside a quiet little Me-163 (quiet at least in-game). It might be because it's late at night im tired and I missed it, but what is that constant stream of exhaust coming out of the plane? Is it water vapor from the chemical reaction?

Here, the catalyst was more neutral, and the motor exhaust was much paler, with a yellow/green, almost transparent colour, until the steam condensed into a dense vapour trail in the air.

Have had this bookmarked for quite some time. It has been revamped.

I can only imagine how much trouble they go to when researching for those programs.
