    Was this a common fate of these planes? Or did the pilot just screwup? Did he hit the brakes too hard perhaps?
    How about FB? Can you duplicate this?
    I nearly did months ago with this fine example of landing technic...

    Hmmm maybe not a 109 yet, but...

    There's a Russian company (in fact the factory that used to build Yak-3's in the war) is building replicas of Zeros. http://lenta.ru/russia/2003/12/23/zero/ (in russian)
    They built a couple for Pearl Harbor the movie. I've no idea what engines they put in them, but its a zero on the outside at least. Probably the cockpit too (if you pull out the nav, GPS and radio equipment). At least Zero's finally carry radios!

    So, if you get enough demand, they could probably start building 109s too. Just have to steal the 601 blueprints from Daimler-Chrysler-Mercedes-Benz :S .. and a couple MG151s. And a Mk108.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

    Better yet, build your own! (I am!)

    There's also a guy who has built two full scale replicas, but he's not doing a kit (can't find the site right now, but a google search should turn it up)
