I just finished my new Me-109 model. This is the last version of the Me-109, the M version.



Read more about it at: http://www.xs4all.nl/~tozu/l46/L46-me109m.htm

Tom (zuid99)

Somehow I don't think that would be very safe to fly in!  Great job Tom.

Look at my other Me-109 model, that's even less safe to fly   :)  :)

loved the models on your site...neat work tom, esp the 1/700 diorama...really  B)

also liked the Comet Racer stuff too...you should do the 'armed' one mentioned in passing in the 'Airlife' book ... a single .303 gun and a single bomb to carry out a special mission (poss franco judging by the date?) the DH. museum may even still have an installation drawing too...worth a call!?

hmmm...one thought...what would its colour scheme be...!?

cheers, joe

Thanks for the tip on the Comet. I will look into it.

Perhaps an export version for the French or Belgian air force?

Just when the Allies thought they were getting used to the Me-262 and the Komet---this bad boy zooms up to meet the Mustangs and Spitfires!

Great idea, Tom!

For Tom (Super-) : in the US have been flown several P-51s with ramjets at the wingtips, have you heard they were unsafe ? :huh:

Toad,

For the 1/700 diorame go to the main site http://www.xs4all.nl/~tozu/ and choose Luftwaffe 1946 and E-stelle 700.


Regards,



Tom

Wow, that diorama is amazing!

Re:  The Mustang Ramjet version - Hasegawa did a boxing of their 1/48 kit as this version.  Wonderland were selling a stack of them for like a tenner at Waddington a few years ago.  I very nearly picked one up.  They might still be flogging them cheap if anyone wants to build one.
