Messerschmitt Me-1609
« on: March 06, 2011, 02:10:45 am »
Last pleasant kit I (got from my buying in the 1990s and) have to build is the Me-609 (twin-309).
Well, this Me-1609 of mine could be (as usual for me) a sesquiplane glider, but this was not asymmetric enough... I plan to have a starboard engine and port nose post, for prone tourist enjoying the landscape...
The kit seems to have holes in both fuselages for cockpit but a single canopy. I have lost the instruction papers but for a what-ifer like me this is not a problem. I will see.

First drops of glue. Depending on the position of the propellers without undercarriage, I will use or discard the ventral radiators.

Tophe,

I had that kit once, and as I recall it had a blanking plate to fill in the hole in the starboard fuselage. In fact I think you've included it in your last piccie, right at the top, above the fuselage side.
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Regards
Kit

featuring asymmetry rather than the biplane wing:
