Messerschmitt Me 109 H0-v.

Messerschmitt Me 109 H0-v  - 4 by Fred Maillardet, on Flickr

The H series of the Messerschmitt 109 was a high altitude fighter developed from the Me 109 F.  The most obvious difference being longer span wings and stabilisers.

The H0 was powered by the DB 601E engine while the later H1 was fitted with the DB 605A.  Both engines were equipped with GM-1 boost (nitrous oxide injection) for improved performance at altitude.

Issues with stabiliser flutter under certain conditions led to the vee tailed H0-v - thinking being that the stronger construction required for this type of tail would add rigidity.  A number of development aircraft were built and saw service with front line squadrons.  The outcome however was not favourable.  While flutter was banished, handling suffered at altitude leading to a reduction in operational ceiling.  Given the raison d'être of the H series was to be a high altitude fighter this was not acceptable and while the in service aircraft remained with squadrons vee tail development was taken no further.

The Model.

Paint scheme (almost - some colours substituted) and transfers from the H-0 kit.

Sorry, I have missed one sentence scrolling through pictures, the answer was in the text all right. :-\
This nice model makes me dream of a W-tail zwilling Bf-109Z like the Fouga Gémeaux. Maybe I could try to draw it. ;D

Come out very nicely Fred. I've a couple of AZ's G-0 "Whiff boxings" and one of them is sitting on the "next up" box as we speak. Hoping to get it done for Telford
