AZM7587 1/72 Messerschmitt Bf-109F-4 "Captured"
- Customer Reviews
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 Bf109F was a much more streamlined aircraft compered to the E series with many other 'tweaks' it proved superior to the Spitfire Mk I and II and prompted the rapid development of the Spitfire V. The F-2 model introduced the 15mm MG151 engine mounted cannon in the nose and was powered by the DB601N engine the was fitted to some Bf109E-4's. The F-4 replaced the 15mm cannon with a more powerful MG 151 20mm cannon and the uprated DB601E engine. The F was in production from 1940 to 1942 when it was replaced by the Bf109G but many pilots felt the F was the best balanced Bf109 to fly in. The F-4/Z featured GM-1 methanol/water boost and was intended for higher altitude combat.
This is AZ Model's excellent new tool Bf109F kit based on their successful G model. It is highly detailed with engraved panel lines and comes with markings for 3 different Captured aircraft, in USAAF and RAF markings.
