"In flight" Me 109 E: FINISHED !

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I'm starting a second build in this GB.

 

I will build this one ,on the provided stand, "in flight".

Using a small electric motor from a racing car to spin the prop.

I have a photo somewhere that shows the filter openings look the same on top as they do the sides.

Is the electric motor shaft just placed directly into the back of the prop spinner? 

 

It will be. I need to drill the spinner just a little bit so it fits tightly over the shaft.

That's also how it's done with the origional Airfix motor.

The Airfix motor is much smaller to fit inside the engines.

 

But,as I build all my models closed,I'm not using the engine.

 

Too much drilling and the prop won't grip.

Painting, by brush, is done.Decals placed and put on the stand.

 

The underside is light blue with white wing tips and yellow below the engine.

 

I placed some lead in the tail to compensate for the motor.Otherwise it would fall on it's nose.
