A staple of the German Luftwaffe from the outset of World War II, the Bf 109 was a multi-purpose fighter that remained in service through 1945. Many top Nazi aces flew the versatile warbird, which was manufactured in staggering numbers with over 30,000 built (the most-produced fighter in history). Though the Fw 190 slowly supplanted it during the course of the war, the Bf 109 was flown by Germany's top three pilots, including "Aces of Aces" Erich Hartmann.
Made by Hobby Master, this 1/48 scale, die cast model is a replica of a Bf 109E-7 as it appeared with JG 27 in April 1941. It features engraved surface details, an opening segmented canopy, a well-equipped cockpit (with a removable pilot figure and panel instrumentation), a rotating propeller, realistic machine guns, optional-position landing gear, and a mid-flight presentation stand. Measures approximately 7½" long with an 8¼" wingspan.
