  1. Those wooden prop Jumo-powered 109’s look very different from the late models. Nice one.

  2. Great build of this early 109, Reinhard.
    Very realistic weathering.

  3. Nice work on this. Your dad went with RLM02 overall. We’ve seen this plane in 02, NMF, and that cooler gray whose number escapes me.

  4. Reinhard, @grimreaper
    Your Dad has another fantastic build here, and you guys are a great team. Thank you for sharing this one with us, I like everything about it.

    This is a plane I have always wanted to make, but I have never had the correct kit to start out with. I am thinking about building up the V-14 Bf-109 one of these days. It will likely happen once I start our dedicated “Luftwaffe” group. Please stay tuned as it will happen soon.

  5. Looks great! Love that early grey scheme with the stark red on the tail.

  6. Another amazing and rarely seen model, Reinhard!
    Congratulations, once more!

  7. Outstanding work, Reinhardt! A real treat for the eyes!

  8. 🙂 … Greetings … 🙂 :
    A very nice and well done representation of this “FUTURE THINGS TO COME” aircraft.
