nice messerschmitt...fuselage is great but the wings need a little reworking on the trailing edge, i don't think they taper foward that much.
to Adriaan... willy messerschmitt did design it but it was designated Bf because he worked for the Bayerische Flugzeugwerke. the Bayerische Flugzeugwerke was later turned into Messerschmitt AG and subsequent designs were labeled Me (Me-163, Me-262 and the Me-410 to name a few
OH MY GOD. I FINALY, FOUND ONE. by one I mean a halfway (yours is much better) decent bf-109.
I can't figgure out why most people and half the books out their refer to it as an "me"-109 when in actuality it WAS designated the bf-109. I speculate that "bf" stands for brit fighter, considering that the british were the most threatining enemy airforce to the germans at the time. well, anyways, that's a beutiful
creation and you should be proud.
First of all, as said above, this is NOT a Nazi Plane. It was a plane created during the Nazi rule of Germany, flew with a swastika on the vertical stablizer, most of the pilots were awarded Iron Crosses by Hitler himself, but it isnt a "NAZI PLANE". If i were you i would work on the wing shape. Try the early Messerschmitt with the rounded wings, make the wings longer, and better markings. The balkenkreuzes on the wings (crosses) stick up and have no white outline. Also try markings on the sides, or adding decals. Overall, very nice job on a tough plane. i was considering doing a Night figher version of this but you have done better than i could have done. You should try the Messerschmitt Bf-110. (by the way the designation of this is a Messerschmitt Bf-109E-4. Nice job. (compliments coming from a 15 year old!)
I don't like giving this MOC anything short of a 5/5, but the aft fueslage is a bit spidley, and the wings are slightly too short. This is still the best Bf-109 I've yet seen, however. Have you consided working on any other WWII aircraft yet? Maybe I should think about finishing that P-47 I was going to make...
I agree that this is definetely a very awesome and realistic model. My only gripe is about the cockpit window, looks good and accurate but it's lacking.. something (and I know those clear pieces are hard to come by). Still, pulls a very strong five smilies. ~J
