Peak Aerospace Me 109 v.1
Bek Treppenbau Me 109
The ME 109 UL began with Tassilo Bek´s visit in the middle of the 80's to Oshkosh. Seeing small reproductions of Mustangs and other fighters, hardly back in Germany, he began to sketch his own airplane. After some planning and drafts he began with the work on the first ME 109. Basis was a covered timber frame, with retractable landing gear (operates via crank) in addition, and somewhat larger span of approx. 10.5 m with a length of approximately 7 m. This first 109 flew well, was not particularly agile. Thus he began to build with friendly engineers and craftsmen the first form for a plastic 109.
