NOTES FROM OUR TECH DEPARTMENT
This is a 1/48 Scale Messerschmitt Bf109G-14 Plastic Model Kit
from Academy Hobby Models.
Suitable for ages 10 and up.

In an attempt to improve on the Luftwaffe capabilities in the 1950's,
Prof. Willy Messerschmitt developed the Bf109. The proving ground for this
agile aircraft was the Spanish Civil War, where it proved to be superior to all
opposing fighters. During WWII, the Bf109 Messerschmitt was used as an escort
for German bombers during the Battle of Britain. It was shown that the Bf109
had too limited a range to be fully effective in that capacity, so it was
decided it should be used as a defensive fighter. As the war progressed, the
G version was developed to improve performance. This version became the most
extensively built of the Bf109.
