Messerschmitt Bf 109 E-4

Need I say anything? This is one of the most famous planes of WWII, "Die Messerschmitt." (that's what it is called in German) The model is almost minifig scale, but not quite. Lengthen it by maybe an inch or two, and it would be perfect. It is supposed to be in a gear-up flight position, with the propeller spinning away faster than the eye can see. I also tried to make this as sleek as possible by covering up as many studs as I could. It is also an excuse to use my new HD camera :)
About this creation


I made sure to add that little air scoop? on the left side. Also, note the sleek nose. A great weapon for destroying P-51s and Spitfires.



The cockpit was a simplified version of another Bf-109 I saw somewhere. The tail was actually based off of an earlier plan to make a Bf-110.



Look at that! Doesn't the cockpit look so real??? Only it's not transparent...



The tail was set unusually high. On many Bf-109s, it was also braced by a thin strut in each side.



The wing is simple, but it is stud-less. Note the twin radiators. Some Bf-109s would have had drop tanks or bombs around here.



Well thanks for visiting! *plane disappears into the sun* I hope you enjoyed this plane. Please leave a comment on how I can improve (wheels, colors, shape, etc.) and I will try to follow through with your suggestions. I hope you enjoyed!

About the contest idea. Honestly I don't think I'm qualified to judge, and I doubt I would have the time that running a contest needs. I really appreciate you thinking of me though.

Quoting clayton Marchetti Are you making the canopy for the Stuka like you made the canopies for the planes? That would certainly open the field of possibilities .
As much as I enjoyed making the canopies for these, I do want the Stuka to seat 2 figures. I did like making this scale of planes, but I want to return to minifig scale planes.

Quoting Jerry Temple Wow, wonderful Messer! Is this meant to be a 109B, C, D, E, F, or G? Or even K?
Not a B! Probably an E or F. All I really know of the varients is this: The B had a full speed of about 390 mph. The E was the main version, with a speed of ~370 mph. The F was the second main version. The K arrived too late to save Germany! And it had taken the 109 too far. A plane from the mid '30s fighting against planes like the P-47D and P-51D? It worked for a while but eventually it was too overwhelming.

Quoting clayton Marchetti My gut inclination is to do a vs couple. Two mortal enemies, locked in combat. Sounds more exciting than two German planes . If you do the P-51b you'll be forever explaining why you made the canopy wrong :-) I would say Chuck Yeager! P51D . He later flew the Bell X1 to break the sound barrier . I also think the P-51D will work great with the same building style you used for the ME 109. Hope this helps good luck
NOOOOO! I'm halfway done with a P-51B! But I am using the same building style, with a central axis one stud wide with the rest of the fuselage SNOTted around it, and wings on the bottom. But I'm thinking of making a minifig-scale P-51D at some point in the near future, if it doesn't interfere with my next large building project...

Quoting JT Robertson Nice! The 109 is one of my favorite planes of WWII, simply because of what a powerhouse fighter it was. I got to see a restored one in action at an air show once, and it was pretty impressive. You have done quite a good job at getting the shape right. Well done!
That's really cool! Ive seen numerous other old warplanes in action at airshows (P-51, MiG 17, Fi-156, AT-6), but the Bf-109 is a classic. I think the cockpit was the hardest part, so I looked at other takes on the strange cockpit shape and settled on this. Thank you!

Quoting Henrik Jensen It is a fine model with clean lines. The use of the large wedge bricks gives a nice shape on the fuselage. The cocpit extends a little too far down on the sides, but the fact that no transclear bricks has been used does not matter, in fact I have often thought about doing the same as the range of clear bricks are small. You mention that the tailwing is placed high, which is correct, but perhaps a little too high on your model, a detail that is easy to fix. Since you have chosen not to have a propeller, it lets you bypass the problem of the size of the spinner. As for colors, you can easily replace the front parts with yellow ones, and on the tail rudder equally. It would add a nice touch
I agree with these changes. They will be added ASAP. Thank you for your comment.

Quoting clayton Marchetti I see you put your vacation to excellent use! I think this is the slickest 109 I've ever seen in lego. Love the canopy and the fuselage. Fantastic job!
Thanks, but I just made this REALLY early in the morning (4:00). Thank you! I may also build a Spitfire to battle this thing in the skies.
