Default Messerschmitt Bf 109K “Kürfurst”

Messerschmitt Bf 109K “Kürfurst”


Well heres my 1/24 Scale Trumpeter Messerschmitt Bf 109K “Kürfurst” about 4/5 months work, and has been airbrushed in the colours of the Great Eric Hartmann (highest scoring Lufftwaffe Ace) This is the first of Three 109s I will be making, 109G2 (Desert)-finished and 109E BOB to go! possibly after my P47

ENJOY...

Introduction

The Bf 109K (code name "Kürfurst" not "Karl")was the final production version of the only German single engined fighter to see service throughout the war. It was developed in an attempt to streamline the production process and increase the number of fighters being built in Germany. In this it was successful, and some 750 109Ks were built in the last six months of the war. However, as the war came increasing close to Germany many of these aircraft were destroyed before getting into action, while chronic fuel shortages began to cut the amount of time Luftwaffe aircraft could actually spend in the air. The most significant achievement of the 109K is that it existed at all.

Development and Changes

The aim of the team designing the 109K was to pick out the best features from the many versions of the 109G and produce a standard aircraft that would have all of the best features of the earlier aircraft. The 109K was powered by the DB 605D engine, with the possibility to have either MW powerboosting or extra standard fuel. The engine mounted gun was changed to the Mk 108 cannon, used in some later versions of the 109G. The 12 mm MG 131s were retained as the cowling guns. The resulting fighter was roughly twenty miles per hour faster than the Bf 109G-10 at all heights.
