    About fifteen years ago, I read about some group building a full size replica of the Me-109. I can't remember what engine they were going to use, but it was about 1,200 hp.  It's been so long, I can't remember if construction was traditional metal, or if they were laying it up with composite skin.  

    I saw some photos and a magazine article about a guy building a Spitfire using composite construction. IIRCm that group was planning to use a Merlin engine.
