Haven't looked into which plane is being represented by this scheme, but I think the yellow wing tips denote a pilot that is capable of blind flying, to assist rookies?

Quite an attractive scheme, but I still think the flyable 109s seem to carry relatively conservative paintjobs, seeing as there is such a variety to choose from.

Well the decals seem to be all from modern sponsorship http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

On the nose we have "Messerschmitt, 75 years me109" .

The one in front of the cockpit is the emblem for the European Aeronautic Defence and Space Company.

The wording below the cockpit translates to Messerschmitt Foundation.

Also my understanding is that its highly unlikely a G10 would have had a Yellow undercowl on the engine. Then again the aircraft is not really a G10 its a re-engined HA1112 Buchon (The Buchon Wk # is in the artists profile)with some G10 parts and a ID plate.


The paint scheme with those yellow wingtips is similar to one of Rick Kents Eastern Front 109F's though no yellow theater band. It has, if anything, a BoB EMIL look to it.

All in all its not exactly historical with those logos all over it, it may just be a composite rather than any particular aircraft.

I like that paint job. Not the most individual for sure, given the variety that existed, but good looking nevertheless.

FYI, EADS contains the remnants of Messerschmitt (Messerschmitt -> Messerschmitt-Bölkow-Blohm -> DASA -> EADS), which may explain it's commitment to these old planes, like the Me163 reproduction they also possess. (though unluckily it's more or less just a look alike)

Yeah is that the rear section of an Emil against the wall in the background of the second picture ?

All it needs now is a Mercedes hood ornament.

I prefer the old scheme it was more based around an actual scheme.

The markings looks reminiscent of a Jg5 aircraft. They were the only ones using yellow wingtips at that stage and it wasnt that common.

Well regardless of the scheme (which I quite like) it's still a beautiful aircraft - way better than the regular Buchon's with their wrong way up engines http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

the paint scheme comes close to the other Bf 109, the "Red 7" (with white wingtips). But like the scheme on the "7", it is not based on a special "historical" 109.

So it's not a historical scheme eh?
There were definitely G-10s with yellow undercowls though, from Jg-4 for example.

Bright color schemes usually occur when the Airforce is totally confident that he has more chance of being shot down by his own side through misrecognition than the enemy.

You will find them common on German planes just after the string of success thorugh Poland, France and barbarossa and into the Battle of Britain (Yellow fuesalage) for recognition.

As the war drags on to the end of 1942 into 1943 and the Luftwaffe gets less confident, better camoflauge starts to take over, unless the planes are to be flying primarily over the German lines (such as the red underside of the Fw190D's protecting the Me262 airfields)

I am sure there were exceptions however, with certain pilots prefering a nice colour scheme.

I hate to see the "written off" one in the background (heavy mottling), tho.

The FM+BB is not written off. It's now in a complete overhaul and will be back in airworthy condition soon.
