The Messerschmitt Bf109 is one of the most famous fighters in history. More Bf109's (over 33000) were built than any other fighter and it shot down many more opponents than any other fighter in history.

The Bf109E introduced the DB601 inverted V-12 engine with direct fuel injection. This new version was vastly superior to the early Jumo powered 109's and was built in large numbers and by the time of the Battle of Britain in 1940, it was the Luftwaffe's main fighter. The E-1 was armed only with 4 machine guns but many were refitted to E-3 standard with 20mm cannons in the wings. The BF109E-4 followed on from the E-3, with minor modifications to the cannon ammunition, pilot armour and canopy. The E-7 was similar to the E-4 but was fitted to carry a 66 gallon drop tank.

This is Airfix's excellent new tool Bf109E-7 kit. The kit is highly detailed with engraved panel lines and comes with markings one Luftwaffe aircraft and one Bulgarian aircraft.
