They are all sorted out by subtypes to the best of my knowledge. The result is not really impressive: less then 400 W.Nr. known machines are illustrated out of the 10'000+ built. This leaves plenty of room for improvement, isn' it? All inputs are most welcome.

Finally, if you do feel a copyright has been infringed, please let me know and I will remove the pics from public view.

Cheers

Hello Marc. Great job! Keep it up even though you may not have 5% of the aircraft built you have done more to organizing the history than most people who claim to be experts on the 109 subject. The work you are doing for the masses of people makes the history easier for them to understand. Keep it up!
Cheers,
Mark VIII.

Re: Late war Bf 109 pictures source

HI Marc,

http://forum.12oclockhigh.net/album....&pictureid=728

http://forum.12oclockhigh.net/album....&pictureid=729

forum.12oclockhigh.net/album.php?albumid=73&pictureid=730

I found this picture just posted by Spektor on the Me 262 thread of the modelforum.cz site. His link to the avaluer.org site led to the enlargement of the 109 and the back of the photo.

I have a selfish motive for posting. I am hoping that you or one of your experts recognizes the 109 and can tell me where the picture was taken.

best regards,

Jim

Hi Karoband,

Thanks for your photos ! this is a new to me bird: it is with certainty a WNF built Bf 109 G-10. Given the mountainous background, location could well be Salzburg - or alternatively Wels, though I'm unsure if any 262 was found at the latter location.

Cheers
Marc

Hi Mark VIII,

Sorry for the delay, I only discover today - reason unknown- your praise. It is much appreciated - for a work in constant evolution.

Sincerely
Marc

Re: Late war Bf 109 pictures source

Hi everyone,
I hate to be a naysayer, but I rather think that the Bf 109 in Post #1052 is actually a Bf 109 G-14/AS. Note its apparent curved left refined cowling return and lower cowl bumps. Its oil filler hatch position would help confirm its identity, but I can’t make it out. Note too its large upper wing bulges, “G” DF loop location, short tailwheel leg, and underwing Morane mast.
Respectfully,
Steve Sheflin

... All of which would be consistent with a WNF-built G-10, no? As far as I can see, the cowling bulge also has the shape typical of WNF-produced machines.

Re: Late war Bf 109 pictures source

Well,
Looks like a KG(J)54 machine?
I didn't know the russian troops did reach Salzburg and/or Wels...
Russian writing on photo's back and site caption says: "Luftwaffe Messerschmitt Me.262 and Me.109 Captured by the Red Army, 1945." (sic)

Cheers,
Franck.

Re: Late war Bf 109 pictures source

Hello,
I am apparently getting old and can no longer read. I read Erla instead of the clearly-written WNF. I humbly apologize for my error.
Respectfully,
