I have made several "navalized" Bf-109T's,



but one of these days will make my "ultimate" seagoing 109. It will have, however, a RADIAL engine in the same vein as the Japanese Ki-61-to-Ki-100!

Way back in the day, I had made a 1/72 "master" of a Ki-100 for a cottage-industry model company (Model-Aire International--"M.A.I."), but the company folded before the plane came out, and of course Hasegawa came out with a fine version themselves. But I still have the original master, and will incorporate that into my "ultimate 109". I am using a Monogram Snap-Tite 109 for the basis, as it is 1/64 or so, and thus is "roomier" and will allow extra length with add-ons without looking out-of-proportion. (sigh) Don't look for it anytime soon, as I have a long list of projects with greater precedence.

(Will include Me-109H wings, and Me-209 V5 tall tail)

Or maybe the Bf 109X:

The story behind it is that the German Ardennes offensive was successful and that the war essentially went on until '46.  However, whilst new jets were being developed/introduced in limited numbers, it was still up to the existing '109s and '190s to carry the burden.  In the case of the '190 it was the D variants and the Ta-152.  For the '109, it became the M variant.  This retained the DB 605DB/DC of the late 'Gs/'Ks but now added contra props, better vision canopy (based upon that for Me-262) and also had an armament of a single 30mm Motorkanone + twin 13 mm MG 131s.

The lower sub-variant also had a rocket booster in the tail.

Greg

My that looks familiar.  First I have seen it - I am not surprised though that people come up with similar ideas.  I was looking for a different variation on the already known Bf-109W:

When Adolf Galland rudely insinuated to Georing that he would rather have a squadron of Spitfires with which to go into battle, Georing decided to "Punish" Galland's squadron for that impudent remark. He had discovered that some mechanics had successfully mated a Diamler-benz engine and cowl to a captured, flyable Spitfire airframe,
so insited on fifteen more to outfit Galland's entire squadron!



An unintentional satisfaction with this model is that it demonstrates the similarities in the Bf-109 and Spitfire when given only a glance (for recognition). Because of the well-documented, and often modeled subject, the viewer's eyes looks at the coloring and markings and starts seeing Bf-109 before his "tricked" mind catches sight of something "un-Bf-109" about it.  I included Galland's famous "telescope" gunsight.

I love tip tanks. Thanks for the inspiration.

If it pleases the artist, may I steal his idea for my next Bf-109 build?
 ;D

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

Yeah. And I'd increase the tail area too.

So, will the new Trumpeter Me509 kit provide a good basis for a Yokosuka R2Y Keiun?

About the only one you haven't covered is a post-War French version in Indochina.
