This is to show the relevant size of a Me109 and a Halifax 4 engined heavy bomber of WW2.This is the only example of a Halifax, except for a wreck from a fjord at Hendon RAF Museum, London. This full scale Halifax was built from scratch at Yorkshire Air Museum, Elvington,near York.
This ME109 has the original Daimler- Benz DB605AM engine. Most of the ones flying today have RR Merlin engines and are from the Spanish air force.
German Me109 has exhaust low down on nose as seen here. Later Spanish 109 have the exhaust the same place as a Spitfire.
Me109’s wingspan 32.5feet, (10 metres). Length 30feet (9 metres)
Halifax wingspan 100feet and length 70feet

My main interest is painting Aviation Art.
I get a lot of enjoyment researching the historical background behind the picture I’ve been commissioned to paint.
I work in acrylic on my big paintings on canvas board but use water colors, pastels, soft and oil, for smaller pieces.
I also enjoy doing pet portraits in soft pastels on tinted paper, from photographs. Ideal presents for Xmas and birthdays.

    I was lucky to see one on the airfield at Westlands, Yeovil, a few years ago. I believe it was being used in a film called ‘Land Girls’. It was the last flying ME109, and had actually seen combat. It was surprising how small they were, and a couple of years later, it crashed.

    I remember seeing a Me109 at an air show as a kid and thinking it was a scale mock-up. Those things are little.

  • I’ve added some interesting measurements above Craig!

    I want to see a 262 flying!! thinbk some bods in Texas were rebuilding some?
    The 109 that crashed that was mentioned ealier was the black ace?
    What ever happened to the spanish aircraft that were used for the filming of the Battle of Brittain film??

  • Yes it would be great to see a Me262 flying again. Though it would be pretty dangerous plane to fly.
    I should imagine the spanish ones were scrapped like all the rest. There is still a few flying.
    Cheers Neil
