The backbone of the Luftwaffe’s fighter force during WWII, the Messerschmitt Bf 109 was one of the most advanced fighters of the era, including such features as all-metal monocoque construction, a closed canopy and retractable landing gear. It was powered by a liquid-cooled, inverted-V12 aero engine. Originally conceived as an interceptor, later models were developed to fulfil multiple tasks, serving as a bomber escort, fighter bomber, day/night/all-weather fighter, ground-attack aircraft and reconnaissance aircraft. The Bf 109F was widely considered to be the best basic variant of the 109 produced.
Supplied on highly detailed plan sheets designed by Brian Taylor, this 1:6.4 scale, all wood model of the German fighter has a wingspan of 1550 mm (61”) and features a retracting undercarriage and working flaps, with power coming from a .60 cu. in. two-stroke engine. A moulded canopy and cowl is also available, along with a laser-cut wood pack. Although designed to be powered by glow engines, experienced modellers should be able to convert it to electric power (details not supplied, so please send us information if you make a successful EP version!) It is not suitable for beginners, either to plan building or model flying.
What’s in a Laser or CNC Cut Wood Pack? – A CNC or laser cut wood pack contains most, if not all, of the intricately shaped parts shown on the plan, which would be difficult or time consuming to cut out by hand. It does not contain any sheet or strip wood, which you will need to buy separately. Alternatively, you can purchase an Additional Wood Pack, if available. Our Laser or CNC Cut Wood Packs only contain balsa, ply and lite ply and do not include other materials that may be required to complete the model, such as hardwoods, metals and GRP sheet.
What’s in a Short Kit? – A short kit usually contains, where available, the plan, the laser/CNC cut wood pack, additional wood pack, canopy, cowl or any other available Glass Fibre or plastic moulded items.
