WHAT is an Me-109X then?

It looks mean, but spindly, all at the same time.

Oh, it's got an Audi AND a BMW engine, it's carrying both badges.  ;)
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

That looks good. What's the canopy off?

To be honest, I don't know. It was in my spares box. The canopy in the kit had yellowed quite a bit so I went hunting for a replacement and this one fit rather well.

Fair enough - I've got a few like that.

The upswept rear sill rings a vague bell with me, but I can't place it.
