My apologies if everyone already knows about this, but I find this pretty darn cool. It's amazing what a bit of cash and willpower will accomplish. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/blink.gif

A "bit of cash" is probably a "bit of understatement"...lol. The engineering and construction skills of the two guys shows they aren't just a couple of junkyard fabricators and their planes look super. The sad part is where it says they will not sell any plans for building due to the impact of possible litigation. Once again we can thank the personal injury lawyers for keeping us safe and grounded.

Too bad there are no specs for the replica. Do any of you know what engine they used for it?

Hi, there are quite a few experimental/homebuilt aircraft companies, that sells kits that you'd have to built yourself. Of course, you'd have to go through the FAA registration and also a licensed pilot. Check out the Experimental Aircraft Association website.

Dang! Are they beautiful or what! Really is too bad that they can't be made for those who would like to fly them. I hope those guys make use of them at airshows and the like.

One slight nit-pick at the site. I don't know what they mean by "introduced" when they say that the 109 was introduced in 1932. Because it was first flown in 1935. Maybe they mean it's designs were first drawn up in '32? Perhaps one of our more ardent 109 fans can fill us in.

Again, beautiful airplanes. And a great acheivement on the part of the builders.

Yep its a shame this talent and so many others get wasted do to politics. I also am wondering about the power plant.

Yep, I thought they were great looking myself. Don't know the price tag on something like that, but it would seem they would be the ultimate prop for movies like Dark Blue World and this upcoming RAF movie.
