    Messerschmitt Bf 109E 60 Instruction Manual. INTRODUCTION. Thank you for choosing the MESSERSCHMITT Bf109E60 ARF by SG MODELS. The MESS- ERSCHMITT Bf109E60 was designed with the intermediate/advanced sport flyer in mind. It is a semi scale airplane which is easy to fly and quick to assemble. The airframe is conven- tionally built using balsa, plywood to make it stronger than the average ARF, yet the design allows the aeroplane to be kept light.
