Achtung, Messerschmitt!

ME 109 - 01
Many of the military MOCs I've built in 2010 were WW-II military aircraft. In fact, most of the aircraft I've built in about two years time are WW-II military aircraft. So, it'll be obvious that they interest me. So, what gets me to write something for the first time in months? Of course, a WW-II military aircraft!

Legohaulic built a very nice rendition of the German Messerschmitt Bf 109 a few years ago, but wasn't happy about the scale. So, he's had another go, with this very nice result.

ME 109 - 02

Note the subtle dihedral of the wings and the clever use of wedge plates to break up the camouflage!


  1. I really dig the wedge plate usage, although I'm not too sure about having identical schemes on both wings. Unless of course it's a limitation from working in Lego.

    Neat build nonetheless :)

  2. I'm pretty sure it does have to do with the limitations of the medium, but I agree that a symmetrical camouflage pattern generally is a big no-no.
