Are you sure that's a Bf-109? It looks more like an Fw-190 to me (then again, I know how much the Germans experimented, so a Bf-109 with a radial and a bubble canopy isn't entirely impossible)...

Yeap , Wooks knows his Luft 46 very well, plus he would have chatted to Glen about it anyway (BTW Glen is the guy who owns the 1/72 vacform C-5 Galaxy moulds - but not sure if its currently in production or not).

Cheers

Yep, it's a Bf-109X.  Something of Messerschmitt's reaction to the Fw-190 and documented several places; if I remember correctly, first prototype had a P&W engine, second had a BMW engine.  It was no where near as good and was abandoned.  I do think I'd love to see that bubble canopy on a regular Bf-109 or, for a real "what-if", a Me-109TL.
