Externally the Bf 109F differed from the E-series, resulting from
many aerodynamic improvements. The stabilizer struts were removed,
the cowling was shaped to be more streamlined, the big underwing
radiators were much smaller, the opening for the supercharger was
improved, the flaps were completely changed, the wingspan was
increased to 9.92 m, and the wing tips now were rounded. The
redesigned wing made the internal mounting of guns impractical, so
armament was revised. The armament of the Bf 109F consisted of the
two MG 17 above the engine plus a cannon firing through the
propeller hub: The early F versions were equipped with the MG FF/M
cannon, the F-2 got the 15mm MG 151, and from F-4 on the 20 mm MG
151/20 was used.
The Bf 109 was flown by the three top scoring fighter aces of
World War II: Erich Hartmann with 352 official victories,
Gerhard Barkhorn with 301 victories and
GŁnther Rall. Hartman refused to
fly any other aircraft.
Question: during WWII, the average
kill ratio in combat was 7 to 1 for the Bf109, for every German
shot down 7 allied fighters were shot, what was the reason for
to find out why the Me109 was the most successful fighter of WWII.
Scale 1/4.9 IMMA legal Wingspan 80"/2,032m.

The F model can be easily converted to the G variant.
Featured in the cover of Flying Scale Model magazine, October 2009
model was developed using factory drawings to maintain strict
scale accuracy. It uses the scale NACA 2R1 14.2 airfoil at the
root converging to a NACA 2411 at the tip. The
plans depict an ingenious system for Working Slats and Flaps with
scale deployment! No other Me109 kit or ARF comes close to it in
presence and detail!
