Here (see: www.youtube.com/watch?v=JmSNqHckry8 ) is a video of a full-scale replica Me-163 in flight (additional videos of it can be seen in the list on the right-hand side of the screen). It is flown only as a glider, but an XCOR Aerospace LOX/kerosene rocket engine (or a large hybrid motor) could power such a replica to duplicate its rocket-powered flight performance (the replica is all-wood, but the operational Me-163s had wooden wings, too).

Use an Aerotech 18mm D24T SU or D21T RMS to really kick in the 'afterburner'.
Those are the only readily available 18mm hi-thrust motors that are not OOP.

Those pack more punch, to be sure, but I'm not sure if those might be too powerful, at least with the "stock" (un-reinforced) Klima Me-163.
