About This File
FSX/FS2004 HA-1112 M Buchon. In 1942, the Spanish government arranged a manufacturing licence with Messerschmitt AG to build the Bf 109G-2. Spain produced its own models with different engines. The final variant was the HA-1112-M1L Buchon (Pouter). It first flew on 29 March 1954 with a 1,600 hp Rolls-Royce Merlin 500-45 engine and Rotol propeller, both purchased as surplus from the UK. This engine had a chin intake, that altered the lines of the Bf 109's airframe. Due to their longevity, Buchons have appeared in several war films masquerading as Bf 109Es and Gs. Gmax model by A.F. Scrub.
