iniBuilds took to their various media platforms to announce their works on an upcoming rendition of the Messerschmitt Bf-108 Taifun for Microsoft Flight Simulator. The Bf-108 is set to become iniBuilds’ second offering from their ‘Warbirds’ product line.
This rendition will aim to integrate the legacy of the Bf-108 with the personal preference of pilots. Notably, the aircraft will include two sets of gauges to use, the choice between German or English panel text and between genuine metric or imperial indications. These changes can all be made through iniBuilds’ interactive EFB platform.
Moreover, iniBuilds implemented MSFS’s latest CFD technology to mimic the aircraft’s accurate fuel, handling and dynamic STOL parameters. This rendition will feature an Argus As10 engine, modelled with data gathered from manuals and observations. The aircraft will replicate quirky features like foldable wings.
The Messerschmitt Bf 108 Taifun is a single-engined sport and touring aircraft, making its maiden flight in 1934. The Bf-108 flew in various areas of the globe, ranging from France to Japan. The Bf-108 adopted the ‘Taifun’ nickname, initially given as a name to German pilot Elly Beinhorn’s Bf-108A, who flew the aircraft from Berlin to Constantinople (now Istanbul) in under a day. This impressive accomplishment prompted Messerschmitt to keep the name for the aircraft type.
Unfortunately, iniBuilds did not disclose any information on the pricing or release date of the aircraft. However, a trailer showcasing the Bf-108 is planned for release on the 10th of February. This will be followed by various media streams depicting the aircraft in action.
Finally, the developer stated in the post that numerous updates for their P-40F rendition throughout 2023 are planned.
