Monster Messerschmitt

Jun 04, 2014 8 Comments by

Belgian giant-scale modeler Hervé Ferauche certainly believes that “bigger is better”: his Messerschmitt Me 109 “Rote Sieben” is a half-scale beauty with a 205 inch wingspan! A 520cc Hirth Boxer engine and 39×18 prop power this 264-pound fighter, sporting a color scheme from the European front. We think Willy would be proud!
