About this Plan

Messerchmitt Me109F. Scale rubber model. Scale is 1/12. Aeromodeller, November 1942.Note this is not a full size plan - full size formers, and one third size plan.

Quote: "In response to popular request we present this fine flying scale model of Willy Messerschmitt's fighter creation. Superb attention to detail makes this a model fit to grace any collection. Readers are referred to the article by the author in last month's issue on the use of stencils for duplicating the insignias.

AFTER building many scale models, both of the flying and solid types, the writer has every confidence in saying that this particular model was by far the most interesting on which to work. The shape of fuselage, particularly in the region of the nose, lends itself admirably to planking and sheeting in soft balsa - methods without equal for obtaining sleek appearance.

The refinements incorporated in the 109 result in a model far more attractive in both appearance and performance than the old 109 E. Now for construction details.

Fuselage. The half former outlines are shown on the plan. On the original they were cut from plywood although laininated balsa could be used provided the sections are increased. Reinforce former 6 to form wing fixing stub.

Roll strong paper tube round 1/4 in dowel and fix to former 4 in the position shown. Cut two of former 12 to allow of subsequent parting. No 14 is cut from hard 1/8 in sheet balsa. Mount all formers on cardboard and cut square holes exactly on the CL shown on side elevation, which is also marked on former outlines.

Mark the position of the formers on a length of square hardwood - 1/2 in square is convenient for this size of model. Former 14 will pin directly to the carefully squared end of the rod. Cement the cardboard lightly to the rod after locating the formers on the marks. Fix stringers to formers along CLs in elevation and plan..."

    ScaleType: This (oz1863) is a scale plan. Where possible we link scale plans to Wikipedia, using a text string called ScaleType.

    If we got this right, you now have a couple of direct links (above) to 1. see the Wikipedia page, and 2. search Oz for more plans of this type. If we didn't, then see below.

    ScaleType is formed from the last part of the Wikipedia page address, which here is
    Wikipedia page addresses may well change over time.
    For more obscure types, there currently will be no Wiki page found. We tag these cases as ScaleType = NotFound. These will change over time.

* Credit field

The Credit field in the Outerzone database is designed to recognise and credit the hard work done in scanning and digitally cleaning these vintage and old timer model aircraft plans to get them into a usable format. Currently, it is also used to credit people simply for uploading the plan to a forum on the internet. Which is not quite the same thing. This will change soon. Probably.


This model plan (like all plans on Outerzone) is supposedly scaled correctly and supposedly will print out nicely at the right size. But that doesn't always happen. If you are about to start building a model plane using this free plan, you are strongly advised to check the scaling very, very carefully before cutting any balsa wood.
