After the fall of France in 1940, the two great air arms of the day, Great Britain's RAF and Germany's Luftwaffe, faced each other in large numbers for the first time.  The spearhead of the Luftwaffe was the Messerschmitt Bf109E.  A formidable fighting machine, it had proved itself to be world class throughout its previous campaigns.  Over southern England, in the summer of 1940, it faced a new set of challenges.  The most serious for the German pilots being the widespread use of the RAF's finest fighter, the Supermarine Spitfre.  More manoeuvrable than the 109E, the Spitfire was the finest fighter of its day.  This set contains two aircraft flown by aces.  Helmut Wick and John Dundas.  Neither survived their fateful engagement on 28th November 1940.

Spitfire mk1a - Bf 109-E4

This was a fun kit to build, and was really nicely molded. My only complaint is that when I attached the bottom section of the wings to the fuselage on the spitfire, I had to shave off quite a bit of plastic to get it to fit. Besides that, it was a lot of fun to build, and a great overall experience.

impressed

after taking a few months absence from airfix I purchased this kit and wow. the only thing that annoyed me was that the spitfire didn't go together smoothly and I had to take apart the kit multiple times to get it to fit. On the other hand the bf109 fitted together very smoothly.
