SH72221 1/72 Messerschmitt Me-209V-4
- Customer Reviews
The Messerschmitt Me209 was an experimental aircraft, designed to break the world speed record (which it did). It only had a very short range and was difficult to handle, also the cooling system could only cool the engine for a short time.
The V4 was a military prototype with a new improved cooling system, however, it was no better than the Bf109F which was already in service with the Luftwaffe and as a result further development was halted.
Special Hobby's Me209 kit looks like a nice, simple but detailed plastic kit. It should build up into a nice little model. There are two different marking options.
