Thanks, it took about ten minutes to make. Since I've heard nothing on the fuse gun blisters, I'm debating on if it would be worth me making my own. I've seen a really nice method of doing so on a meister-scale build and I've already figured the tail for making the later "k" version. It would be nice to not have to make these if possible I've yet to decide if I'll even go that route but the plane I favor second to this scheme is a "K" and I'd like to present something other than the stock kit at the field knowing how popular these will be. Maybe the next 109 will be a "k".. I did get two sets of exaust.. and I'm enjoying this thus far.

Ram,

I could be wrong, but I believe alot of the early G models used it too(G2) It was used until the wing blister on the G 6 came out(blister was due to bigger tires)

Hum.. Your right, the G-2 and G-3 shows them on an illustration in my aerodetail. But thats it. They also didn't have the fuse bulges so these would be eliminated when building. The G-4 is when the later wheels were used.

Thanks

Actually the G 4 used then too...I have several pics of G4's with the spoked rim...but nothing past the G4 has em...it might offer some more options for subjects tho, as you say, it would eliminate the need for the bulges on the wings.

I actually need to correct what I stated earier. If you did a G2, you wouldn't need the bulges on either the wings, or the upper cowl. The G2 used spoke rims only, with a (650 x 150) tire. The early G4 used a spoked rim, but saw the change over to a larger tire(660mm x 160mm), thus the wing bulge. The G6 switched the machine guns from the MG 17s to the MG 131, thus the upper cowl bulge. The G6 never had spoked rims at all.

I should also add that the G2 still had a retractable tailwheel, whereas the later G4, and on had the fixed tail.

you guys are really getting to me...am I going to have to order a set of Glennis wheels[:@] how much would you like for the flite skins galzier and what size is the axle they are make for?
since you're doing the "Erla" hood, it means that your plane will be a late model G6(or later) the spoked rims wont work for your plane

Not sure just yet. I've been working on my tail modification for the "k" variant. I'll probably enlarge the wheel just a tad from the stock one or what looks good per the size of the plane.

I think I was the first to post a video of the ESM Fw-190 Dora that was released after this 109 came out. It took me nearly 4-5 months from when the was released to get it flying and I'm not in any way, shape or form tied/close to any of the distributors...

The same problem happened on the Fw-190 thread where people expect the average guy at home to fill their needs to see the model fly NOW, but people were being quite a bit ruder about it... the model will fly as soon as the guy who put the money down on this models is ready for it to fly. You want to see it fly sooner? then put the money down yourself and fly it, or harrass the manufacture who released the model. It's not the responsibility of the guys building here to fill ''YOUR'' needs to see it flying or make a sale for someone else. They are sold as ARF's but there is actually an amazing, time consuming amount of work still left to do on these models to get them flying. When you think ARF and low wing 4 channel sports model, you think, should only be a couple of nights work, right? these larger more complex models and require far more work to get done.

Keep at it guy's. I'm also watching in the background and waiting to see how it goes.

Thanks

dave
Just interested to see how it flies before I consider purchasing one. It's a good marketing tool. Top Flite, Hangar 9 post flying video's after they release there ARFs. Didn't mean to make a mountain out of mole hill or ruffle any feathers. If I came off rude as Dave believes, I apologize.

Oriole.

Hey Ram, In case you did'nt know, some late G6's had both the "Erla" hood and the tall tail too, if you're still looking for schemes.(you could use the kit blisters for this)what ever you choose I'm sure it will be a beauty!

G14s are nice!

Ram do you have the Squadron Signal #43 "Messerschmitt BF 109G"? It has a few pics of "tall tail's" with the Erla hood, and some profiles in the back that would work also. Let me know if you don"t, and I'll try to scan them and post here for you.

No, I don't, and pictures would be greatly appreciated! I know my rudder looks a little off but from the references I have, there were several versions. The one instarted with was fatter or wider and depending on the one I go with, I can always trim this to the correct version.

Ram, those are Swiss markings not Swedish and Switzerland maintained its' nuetrality throughout WWII and did have a formidable air force. The 109s were purchased and or traded for the release of pilots or other sensitive aircraft that happened to go down over Swiss borders. Pretty good hi vis though.
