this company has made 13 ME-109s so far with plans to make 16 odd more, also looks like they're going to be working on P51s soon. from their article in flypast i assume there may be future projects such as spitfires, hurricanes or what not.

ideal if you have the money the licence and want to take the luftwaffe/USAAF impresions a bit futher :D

Having a lack of knowledge in many fields (as many will know from my posts previous) I am sure I will be corrected, but isn't the yellow aircraft a harvard?
And in the rare event that I am correct, why does it have german markings?

Germany used the T28/Harvard as a trainer Post war....
If you want to be pedantic, it should be Bf 109 (Bayerisches Fluegzeug Werk). Messerschmitt did not come into common usage until mid war..
They are FW190s, A's or F's
Good work, whether repro or not, it's good to see that other aircraft are represented.

Just to correct a few things:

The correct spelling is Messerschmitt, the company "Bayrische Flugzeugwerke" was renamed to "Messerschmitt AG" in 1938, before the war.

FW stands for Focke-Wulf, Focker is another aircraft company.

The FW is a reproduction, the yellow plane was a restauration project and is mentioned as "North American AT-6D" (not T28, the have a T28, but that's still under restauration) in the text. It has german marking because it's still in use, used by the FW pilot to keep his "Spornradlizenz", a special licence for flying planes with a "Spornrad" (the small wheel on the rear of the FW190, don't know the english name for this)

Greetings

Thanks Wildsau, perhaps I should clear my last statement. Since the 109 was in production before 1938, technically Bf109 is the right term, however, since ME and Bf were both used at the same time, it has become accepted to call them ME109s.
Focker, should be Fokker
Spornrad, I think the english is Tailwheel (not literal translation)

yeah Phil, see Wildsaus post. There ain't a lot of FW190s left now. Granted, they served with the French Airforce after the war (had a nasty habit of falling out of the sky, due to Frenchmen sabotaging bits when under the Boche - case of what comes around...), but, as with most Warbirds, they are a dying breed
