Fourth attempt at this post. My internet connection can be flaky at times.

Well done Stephen.

A good looking model that flies well. The sound track is very fitting.
Having done a lot of amateur movie work in the past, I know that getting a foreign sound track to mesh with an existing video sequence can take a lot of effort.
My wife has done a lot more that I have and much better quality too.

Just ran across this effort. Found the wing geometry airfoils and washout most interesting. If I read the comments correctly this is supposed to be as per original Bf data.

Lovely film, Stephen. Amazing the difference a realistic engine noise makes to the (already very convincing) flight realism. And ah yes, ‘Little Brown Jug’: in the Jimmie Stewart film version, Glenn Miller gives his wife a real little brown jug as a sentimental keepsake and we see her clutching it on hearing news of her loving husband’s tragic demise as the credits roll. A somewhat more sympathetic portrayal of Mr Miller than evidence actually suggests, but that’s Hollywood for you!

Anyway, a great little video of a great little model. Thanks for sharing.

Amazing the difference a realistic engine noise makes. . .
I'm glad people enjoyed it - yes I was impressed at how what I'd set out to be a fun gimmick does in fact have some gravity when the engine sound comes in. I think that the engine sound matches the actual passage of the model closely enough to give a sense of reality. I would think such a close match to be unusual; surely it would be hard to find engine recordings - unpolluted with extraneous airshow noise etc - that would match up with the flightpath of any particular model. At least free flight models, that is.

charlieman, I looked at that link. I'm very taken with what the modeller has achieved. He does say his motive is accuracy and he's clearly showing success here. I have a drawing of the early 109 wing which appears to be a factory drawing, and shows 2° of incidence at the root just like the 3D printer fellow says, but it doesn't give tip incidence. However the drawing is the only evidence I have for the aerofoil (the internet seems to draw a blank) and I must say that the 3D feller's aerofoil matches it very closely indeed. I looked at lots of 109 pictures from my records this a.m. and found quite a few that really say 'no washout' to me and only one or two that look as if there's washout. I need more convincing! Plus 2° at the root and zero at the tip, as the fellow asserts, would mean that the tip is in line with the fuselage datum. In the attached photo - just one of many useful photos - the pitot probe sprouts right from the leading edge (not above or below, +/- a few mm); and also in plan, the pitot is aligned with the outer end of the aileron. I can't make a chord line traced between the pitot and aileron tip, appear in line with the fus. datum however hard I squint!

Stephen.
