‘Planesy’s 1/24th scale collection
Here are my 1/24th scale models so far.
The Desert scheme 109 is my little replica of ‘Black 6’ which flew for a number of years on the airshow circuits in the UK after an extensive re-build by Russ Snaden and his team.
When I first saw her fly I couldn’t believe I was seeing a Daimler-Benz powered 109 in the skies and fell in love with her uniqueness and meticulous re-build.
Sadly she succumbed to a fuel pump failure and had to do a wheels up emergency landing which flipped her on her back and was deemed irreparable.
If any of you know of this aeroplane or know the history of Black 6 you may be interested in talking to me further. Lets just say their is more to the story than is made public!!
