The Messerschmitt Me 109 is the best-known German fighter of WWII. As a beautiful wind wheel this legendary fighter aircraft can now ensure air superiority in your garden.
Made from stainless steel the “Gardenfighter” Me 109 is resistant to wind and rain. To represent the original painting scheme as perfect as possible the steel parts are covered by high quality stickers made for cars. This makes the maxFlite.de Gardenfighters look very much like small copies of the real plane. All axes are equipped with ball bearings which makes the plane react already at light winds.
Along the pictured assembly manual the wind wheel can be set up within 5 minutes. A 70 cm pole made from aluminum is part of the delivery. It is just pushed into the ground or fixed to the balcony with cable ties.
Get your own maxFlite “Me 109” for your hangar. This extraordinary wind wheel will give you much pleasure and make your neighbors jealous.

Facts & Figures:
- Specific maxFlite model: Bf 109G-6, 15909, flown by Major Gerhard Barkhorn, Jagdgeschwader 52 (Fighter Wing 52), August 1942 at Kharkov.
- With 301 aerial victories he was the second most successful fighter ace of all time.
- His wife’s name “Christl” the pilot painted on all of his planes.
- Because of the improved nose armament of the G-6, two large blisters (called the Beule) were added in front of the cockpit to provide space for the new guns.
- The 109’s cannon fired through a blast tube between the cylinder banks of the hanging V-engine, and out through the propeller shaft.
- The designation Bf 109 is historically correct. After the Bayerische Flugzeugwerke (BFW), the ‘Bavarian Aircraft Works‘, became the Messerschmitt AG in 1938, all subsequent aircraft were designated ‘Me’. However, the Luftwaffe used both the Bf 109 and Me 109 designations throughout the war.
- More G-6 were built than any other version of the 109.
- One drawback of the Me 109 was the narrow wheel track of its landing gear, which led to many accidents during takeoff and landing on poorly maintained runways.
