    Product Description
    This is a plastic model kit, which comes unassembled and unpainted. So glue, model paints and other basic modelling tools are additionally required.

    During WWII the BF 109 Messerschmitt was used as an escort for German bombers during the Battle of Britain. In this capacity it was shown that the BF 109 had too limited a range to be fully effective in that capacity so it was decided that it should be used as a defensive fighter.

    As the war progressed the G version was developed to improve performance. This version became the most extensively built of the Bf109. To increase its capabilities a Daimler-Benz DB605A 1,475Hp 12 cylinder engine was used.

    The main armament of the BF 109G was a pair of 13mm machine guns mounted under the cowling ahead of the cockpit canopy. It was also armed with a 20mm MG151 or 30mm MK108 cannon that was fired through the prop spinner. With the improved engine and armament the BF109G became one of the most respected fighter aircraft of WWII.

    It is thought that some 35,000 BF 109s of all versions were produced. Many went into Czech Air Force service after the war, and was also used by the Israeli Air Force.

    Highly detailed cockpit interior and landing gear.
    Fully engraved panel lines and detail.
    Authentic decals included.
