Description

Description

The Bf 109E was the standard Luftwaffe fighter at the start of the Second World War. A familiar sight to British pilots as it was the only single engined Luftwaffe fighter in use during the Battle of Britain, where it proved to be the equal of the Spitfire, and superior to the Hurricane. Replaced by the 109F during 1941 the remaing E variants were sent to Africa and the eastern front.

The 109E-3 reached its maximum speed at 12,000 feet, where it could reach 354 mph or 570 k/ph. The Spitfire I was slower at this height, but could match or possibly beat this speed at 19,000 feet. As the attacking force, the Germans were largely able to control at what height the battles between these two aircraft occurred, giving the Bf 109E a slight speed advantage.

On 14th April 1941 the BF109E/Trop’s of JG27 arrived at Ain el Gazala airfield in North Africa. While in transit to Sicily, where their aircraft had been tropicalised, JG27n had briefly carried out missions in the Balkans.

Tropicalisation involved fitting a dust filter over the supercharger air intake and provision being made for emergency desert survival equipment including a carbine.

This is a pre-built and pre-painted 1:72 scale plastic aircraft from Easy model. It is a finished model and comes complete with a stand.

It does not require glue and is ready to display.
