Hi again,

Here are some scans of a Messerschmitt BF-109 G-14 restoration project, actually two BF-109 G-14's. This man, Werner Kölzsch, is a professional restorer with a passion for "oldtimers" in both the automobile and airplane sector. The G-14's he is currently restoring are a request from both the Technikmuseum Berlin and Luftwaffenmuseum Gatow (Berlin). He's got a collection of parts for BF-109s and FW-190s and is currently also in the process of restoring a FW-200 "Condor" engine complete with cowling and covering. Kölzsch is working on the Daimler-Benz engine himself and is in the process of fixing a cylinder block. The G-14's he is creating are for the most part using original parts wherever possible. The wings for example are from another Messerschmitt, but not a G-14. Kölzsch also plans to have working Daimler-Benz DB605 AS/AM engines in these two '109s.

Just check out some of the pictures. There's not much to translate here since it doesn't get very technical. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Yeah hope they will not be static, but it sounds like they will... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

I don't think they're being restored to fly, especially since they're being ordered by two museums with a nice World War II aircraft collection. I suppose they want a working engine for indoor "sound demonstrations". http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif

Personally I'd rather have a beautifully restored (or rather rebuild) static G-14 than a flight-worthy G-14 which ends up like "Red 7" after a few months.

You can never have too many 109s around!
Actually I saw Red 7 fly at Oppenheim in 2005.Fantastic.
