The kit features 30 resin parts, 10 withe metal resin parts, 2 vacuformed canopies (one spare) and instructions.
Within the context of Messerschmitt’s wide-ranging proposals for standardization on far fewer basic types, and in the light of the RLM’s tight delivery schedules for the Me 262, the project bureau examined the possibility of producing a quick and easy to assemble jet based upon types either already available or at least fully engineered. But Messerchmitt abandoned the idea quickly: it being discovered upon closer examination that the expenditure involved would, in fact, be not much less than that required for the Me 262. The number of components which could be taken over from types already in production was extremely limited. The resulting aircraft would give every impression of being a makeshift solution and, in any case, by this time flight tests of Me 262 were already at an advanced stage. The basic design of the jet-powered Bf 109 TL was a combination of the Bf 109 G rear fuselage, a new nose with armament of two Mk 103 and two MG 151/20 cannon, nose wheel of the Me 309, main wheels of the Me 155 B-1, wings of the Me 409 and two Jumo 004 B jet engines mounted in nacelles under the wings. The Messerschmitt 109 Turbo-Lader Strahltriebwerk ( turbocharger jet engine) was proposed on January 22, 1943, but it was found completely useless by March, if only because some components were taken from aircraft that were paper projects themselves.
