The model is of conventional all-wood construction. A Laser Cut Wood Pack is available, which contains most of the shaped parts needed, such as fuselage formers and wing ribs. The Additional Wood Pack is also available, which contains MOST of the additional sheet and strip wood and ply to complete the aircraft. A moulded plastic cockpit canopy and engine cowling are available for this model as well as an aluminium propeller spinner. The model was designed to be powered by a .60 cu. in. 2-stroke or .75-.90 cu. in. 4-stroke engine, but experienced modellers have successfully converted it to electric power (details not supplied) It is not suitable for beginners, either to plan building or model flying.
The full size: One of the most recognisable fighters from WWII, the Messerschmitt Bf 109 established a reputation as a fast, manoeuvrable and heavily armed fighter. It remained in front line service with the Luftwaffe throughout the Second World War. The Messerschmitt Bf 109 was also the most produced fighter aircraft in history, the aircraft was developed by Bayerische Flugzeuwerke in 1935 and designated the Bf 109. The company was later renamed Messerschmitt AG, whose aircraft all had the prefix Me so calling it either Bf 109 or Me 109 are correct. It went on to establish a reputation as a fast, manoeuvrable and heavily armed fighter and remained in front line service with the Luftwaffe throughout WWII through continual development and improvement. Over 33,000 were built and it remained in service with other nations for many years after the war.
What’s in an Additional Wood Pack? – Our Additional Wood Packs contain MOST of the necessary sheet and strip wood needed to complete a model being built from a Sarik Hobbies plan and using the associated laser cut wood pack, if available. We stock a wide range of balsa, ply and spruce in popular sheet and strip sizes but even so we cannot guarantee to be able to supply all the wood necessary to complete each model. So some additional purchases may be required from other modelling wood stockists if not available from Sarik Hobbies. Our Additional Wood Packs only contain balsa, ply and spruce wood in the stock sizes as used by our suppliers and do not include other materials that may be required to complete the model such as hardwoods, metals and GRP sheet.
