Michael. Start assembling the BF-109 G2 - this is a great model for your hangar.
I do recall a hair-raising takeoff every time - and I never had the nerve to launch it myself - always had my son toss it so both hands were on the sticks thankfully!Fellow Me-109 enthusiasts...
Anybody else have trouble hand launching this thing? This plane, more than any other, scares me to death every time I launch it: the torque roll to the left immediately after release usually has me grabbing the sticks and dodging the ground...to varying degrees of success. None of my other planes are as remotely as challenging to launch- could it be the small wing size? I've read the Me-109 was tricky plane for pilots to master- maybe the foamboard version is the same.
I'm learning to back waaayyy off on the throttle for launch (~35%). I might switch out the prop (9X6) for a slow-flyer prop and see what that does.
PS- Bwarz, know that your design is solid. Those radiator scoops underneath can take a lot of abuse.
This model is interesting in a span of 1.2-1.5 meters and the author of the project created an internal structure for the strength stability of the fuselage on bending and torsion on this scale. I don't see the point in repeating the author's construction on a smaller scale - there are many ready-made solutions of copies and semi-copies on a scale of 1:12. When I make a model, I first of all observe the CULTURE of the WEIGHT of the model, trying not to harm the strength of the structure. A brick can also fly if you put a powerful power plant on it...Your model will have an excessively rigid fuselage with an excess weight.This is what I foresee.But everyone has their own desires, and I only advise.No offense.

beautiful build! thanks for sharing and thanks for the mods too! this might convince me to finish another one that I started forever agoThanks for sharing your design bwarz. I made one with some mods of mine, changed air intake, oil and water coolers, canopy and some other stuff along the way. The version I did is 109 G-2/tropical. Here's a link to short flight vid
I got a couple of these "aging" builds as well, bf-110 is hanging on wall waiting to be finished for around 2 years now lol. Good luck on finishing your buildbeautiful build! thanks for sharing and thanks for the mods too! this might convince me to finish another one that I started forever ago
