About this Plan

Messerschmitt Me109. Free flight scale model German WWII fighter.

Quote: "Full size plans! Stan Cole's Me 109. A free flight model for .5 - .75 engines.

After Stan Cole's Spitfire (oz1641) plans were published in 1962, they became so popular that a model of the Spit's old adversary - the Messerschmitt 109 - was an obvious follow up design. After testing two prototypes extensively, under a variety of conditions, we can safely say that this design is another winner.

It is not a super-scale job. Some design deviations have been necessary, as with the Spitfire, in order to produce a tough practical flying model. However, the original fighter's characteristic appearance is fully retained. A nice paint job will really dress up your Me 109, large numbers of which we expect to see during the coming season.

Building notes: Wing: Commence by pinning down the plan, LE and TE (medium balsa), the latter being suitably notched for ribs. Pin down the lower halves of ribs W1 and W2 and the 1/8 rear spar..."

    ScaleType: This (oz3431) 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.


    Notes:
    ScaleType is formed from the last part of the Wikipedia page address, which here is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Messerschmitt_Bf_109
    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.
    Corrections? Use the correction form to tell us the new/better ScaleType link we should be using. Thanks.

User comments

It does appear to have quite a bit dihedral which could add the stability some of these low wing WW2 designs might be lacking.

Notes

* 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.

Scaling

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.
