Bf-109 with a Daimler-Benz engine:

Midwest Aero in Danville IL just finished a BF 109 restoration that looks like a 10/10.

What an icon, that claustrophobic coffin canopy, the spindly weak undercarriage. Yellow markings usually meant Eastern Front or else JG26. At over 35,000 made it might be the most produced fighter (and aircraft?) ever built. Or else it's the Russian Yakovlev. Cool little killer. Thanks.

That old boy did a DETAILED preflight walkaround... Very nice restoration, and obviously a full rebuild on the engine. Thanks!

Mark Felton did an episode not too long ago about a plane called a MesserSpit. Brit plane captured by the Germans, Merlin engine removed .. replaced with a Daimler engine & 109 nose .. the frankenplane had better performance than either the Spit or the 109 !!!

That 'Towbot' is pretty cool -- had no idea such a thing even existed!
