Full Description

Designed by British Scale Champion Brian Taylor, this top class 68” (1727mm) span !:5.7 accurate scale model of the famous German WWII fighter features retracting undercarriage and working scale flaps. This plan is part of the Brian Taylor Scale Plans collection and is not suitable for beginners.
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.
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, but you will need additional sheet and strip wood and ply to complete the model, as well as all the hardware needed. Moulded plastic cockpit canopy and engine cowling parts are available for this model, as well 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.
