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

Or a post-war, Merlin-powered Hispano HA-1113 (Buchon II?) version for Spain?

Me 109TL



from FLUG-REVUE, June 1961.
"Evil our grandsires were, our fathers worse;
And we, till now unmatched in ill,
Must leave successors more corrupted still."
Horace, 65BC - 8BC. Marsh translation.

What the heck.  Clipped wingtips, looks even faster to me.







Watch out if Tophe sees that one!   :D :D :D :D :D

This twin is the most interesting for me of all the 109 derivatives, but they are all a handsome collection. One additional that comes to mind might be a German take on the Yak 15, where you take a 109 and undersling forward a BMW 003.

I believe one of the 109TL concepts had that very idea.  I can't recall the engine used, but I remember Unicraft had a kit of it and it appeared on the Luft46 website.

John,

I believe you are referring to this one:




Unicraft do it in both 1/72 and 1/48.  I am not sure if it is a fictional one though...not that it really matters too much to us.

That's the girl.  Luft 46 makes no mention it, but as you say that's moot.

I have underway a 1/48 Airfix Bf-109E-7 and a Tamiya Bf-109E-4 both featuring a cloth wing and one a cloth rear fuselage with horizontal stringers.     
To be finished ad indefinitum.    >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D

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

Likely not as the R2Y1 was rather larger, being powered by a coupled engine made from two of the license-built DB601 engines.

Me 109TL

Back in my files, I've got an update of the article I did for the Luft '46 website on the Me109TL as well as drawings of of the different versions.  Finally usage was by the Israelis of Czech-built versions re-engined with Beryl engines obtained from the UK (they bought the entire program when the UK didn't want it).  I'll have to see if I can find and scan the three-views I did the "old fashioned way" by copy, cut, and paste.

One thought on the single-float variant, you want that center strut to go back far enough to pick up the main landing gear trunnions as it eliminates a lot of un-necessary redesign to carry the float loads.

or a Griffon on the 109, US or RAF test markings. 1943?

Since it can now be done in 1/48, how about a Me509Z?  I suspect one could find the necessary bits to do it in 1/72, too.

Messerschmitt Me 309-XIII/246



Could be based on this Huma kit?



The Me 709 has already been built by Dizzyfugu



Note: Yes I know the 109 was called the Bf 109 but Willy M is the common theme here.

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