     Here is another example of a successful fighter plane being converted into a floatplane.  Not surprisingly, since other (Zero and Spitfire) conversions proved to be a failure, Me-109 W shared the same fate.
     There is almost no information available about this plane, no pictures and we don't even know if it was built.  Plans however exist, and so now does the card model of this unusual Me-109 variant.
     According to AJ Press Monografie: Messerschmitt Me-109 Part 3, Me-109W was based on the Me-109 F with floats taken from Arado Ar-196, a ship based recon plane.
