One of those interesting indigenous designs that should have succeeded but didn't, despite three marks and much redevelopment. A stark contrast to the Fvs 120 for example.
However, the Pyorremyrsky (basically a plywood Me.109 on a plywood G55 wing) was a success, and owed that to it's Myrsky predecessors despite being a new design.

Have you some photos of the other type of finiish fighter more closely resembling the BF-109?
