Hi Harrison,

Very good new,

What type of engine (England)? (DB 605D, DB605ASB ASC)
What is the period of restoration (England)? 2 or 3 years and more?

I hope to see that plane in meeting.

thanks

Hello harrison987,

I went through your former posts and found no reference to an Bf 109 K restoration project. Any further information would be highly appreciated

Cheers

Marc

(Copy from my post over in LEMB)
Maybe some further three Buchons undergoing the usual metamorphosis

Just in case you do not know - there´s a batch of 109 fuselages in work. it looks like there´s a rather huge demand?

Re: 109 K4 restoration project???

Hi guys,

The on in the UK is from a Belgian Crash-site. it was purchased directly from the farmer whose property it was on. I have seen photos, and it is in good condition...however I cannot post any photos as I was asked not to. What I can tell you is the old Black 6 restoration team is involved, and it is a DC engine from what I remember.

One in Germany is a new-build, the other is another original K...but being built with other original Me109 parts from other wrecks.

I read on "Le fana de l'aviation" (french magazin) date 1993, that Mr. Wagner store a pair of K4 wings for a static restoration.
