Herr Hetjens is right- the 108 was a sport plane. However it was a very close relative of the 109. When someone (possibly me-I know I\'ve seen a pic somewhere) uploads a photo, note the vertical stabilizer-almost exactly like that of a 109, right down to the swastika position. I think the wings are similar too, or at least square-tipped.

the Bf-108 "Taifun" was really not a fighter!
The Bf-108 was the first aircraft for general aviation. The
Bf-108 is a typical travel-aircraft and still up to date.
The Bf-108 is a fourseater, flown by one or two pilots like
a Cessna 172.
The engine is not an Argud but an Argus V8-engine.
