I was invited to join this site, and looking through it I'm very impressed! I am a Former German living in Canada now. I have a proud herritage and honored to have a Great Uncle who flew a Me 109 in JG 11 then JG 77. I look foward to contributing to this site, and make some more friends!

Horrido!

Welcome aboard! We're glad to have you join up, especially Ernie and I--you've made the North American Division of LLL one third larger!

Very interesting to know your great uncle flew the '109. My dad was from the "other post office" and served in the U.S. 1st Armored Division. Good to have you here.

Thank you very much. My Great Uncles first ever mission was the suicidal Operation Bodenplatte. He got one Confirmed victory during that melee.

I'm very much into RC aircraft. Currently I'm building a 1:5 scale Gas powered RC Me109G-10. I'm trying to make it as historically accurate as to the theme I've chosen. The problem being trying to find decent fotos. Otherwise, so far, so good!

Thanks again guys. The plane in question is Me 109G-10/U4 'Weise 11' Rosemarie of II./JG52. I have several fotos but its very hard to determine the colours. Especially for the cowl.

Hey thanks for that, and the PDF! Its a great magazine you guys have there :D
I noticed on 'Rosemarie' it dosn't have the yellow band on the cowl or the yellow
rudder. Is there a reason for this? None the less, great colour rendition!
