  • it was really pretty impossible with how I had to connect the angled wings. Plus those little bits you see there are just so that I can attach the landing gear.
  • Not really. It just looks weird from this angle.
  • Yeah...it was a little hard to put on there without using stickers.

The Me-109, standard fighter plane of the German Luftwaffe during WWII.

I'm a big WWII buff. But strangely, I've not build too many WWII things in Lego. I thought it was time to fix that.

I think it's a big improvement over my last one

I tried to make it as accurate as possible. It is minifig scale, has functional tail, and angled wings.

    Remember, all the short words go together when it comes to navigation lights:

    red - green

    port - starboard

    Hi, I'm an admin for a group called Lego planes, and we'd love to have this added to the group!

    Actually the cannon in the nose is 20mm, not 30, according to one of my many aircraft books. Any way, nice fighter.

    According to that damn internet encyclopedia, a few of the K models did have a 20 mm nose cannon, but the majority had the 30 mm.

    Did you check your source with at least two other sources? I'm currently checking some of the other books as a cross reference but I'm very sure thats not right, we're talking about the majority of BF-109's not just a BF-109K.

  7. Geoffrey the Dragon 75 months ago | reply

    Actually according to this book we're both right. The BF-109K had a 30mm cannon in the nose and a pair of wing mounted 13mm cannon that could be changed with a pair of 20mm cannons . However the BF-109F,G and H had a 20mm cannon mounted in the nose with two wing mounted 7.9mm mgs. The BF-109b-d were armed with four 7.9mm cannons, And the BF-109E had two 20mm wing mounted cannons.

    Who really cares what size gun it was and what variation of the plane it was on. It dun had a BIG GUN in da noze of da plane! That's all that really matters to me.

    True^. I just felt like clogin' your photostream with useless comments. ;)

    i saw this a while back and was in too much of a rush to comment. in the interim, i have run through this creation in my head surprisingly much, and i've grown more and more happy with the angling effect of the wings. such an uncommon detail to address in the brick. this is truly a standout model.

    This is a great model! Very nicely detailed. Looks awesome!

    Awesome, Tyler! Are you going to be at BrickCon? If so, if this is still intact, bring it with you!

    Dude nice work, is it that only ww2 modle of yours???

  14. Legohaulic 66 months ago | reply

    ^ Its my most recent one. I built a lot of WWII and military models before discovering the online Lego community. I just don't have any pictures of those.

  15. AppleMan-K83 64 months ago | reply

    Nice, Really cool ME-109, Now, just build me a P-38 to shoot at it....
    (hehe, the P-38 has FIVE really big guns "in da noze of da plane")

    Otherwise, this is the best Lego fighter-plane I have ever seen.
    Looks like it has a great 'Swooosh!' Factor....

    Nice job!

    You should also tag this BF-109 esp. since it's an E-series.
