Without a doubt the most famous of all German Fighter aircraft produced during the Second World War, the Me 109 saw action in all European and African theatres. The ‘E’ variant is most renowned for its role in the Battle of Britain, the seminal air battle of the war and, given the critical nature of the times, perhaps the most important. The full size aircraft, powered by a Daimler Benz DB601Aa engine, was capable of a maximum speed of 348mph at 14,500ft. Its maximum operating ceiling was 34,450ft. The model scheme represents ‘White 14’, a recently restored example now flying in the USA, which was flown during the Battle of Britain by Hans-Joachim Marseille. Marseille would go on to score 158 victories from 382 combat missions flying Me 109s. He died on 30th September 1942 whilst baling out of an aircraft that had developed engine failure.
