Well, here we are. And it only took six months. Thanks to those who voted for a camo and tested this plane. I'm hoping for this to be my first post that hits 100 upvotes and pushes me to platnium!

The Messerschmitt Bf 109 is a German World War II fighter aircraft that was the backbone of the Luftwaffe's fighter force. The Bf 109 first saw operational service in 1937 during the Spanish Civil War and was still in service at the dawn of the jet age at the end of World War II in 1945. It was one of the most advanced fighters of the era, including such features as all-metal monocoque construction, a closed canopy, and retractable landing gear. It was powered by a liquid-cooled, inverted-V12 aero engine. From the end of 1941, the Bf 109 was steadily being supplemented by the Focke-Wulf Fw 190.

    This guy could easily pull of a Honda CBR like Marc Marquez’s in the MotoGP. Just some ideas...

    next time, edit the dragscale (=0), not only the mass, when you make stuff that is not mirrored.
    You have that detail on the right side close to engine that have a lot of drag, so your plane is auto-rolling

    I recommend using 0.45 on the shine with the colour mod, that gives aircraft a slight shine, while maintaining that historic matt :D

    @AdlerSteiner If you mean the triangular window, I think you’ll find that the F4 had no window on the right side.

    fuselage is fat, gear is kinda small, and the f-4 has another window in front of the canopy until the G series. but besides from those everything is...neat! i like the cockpit...
