The prototype Bf109A first flew in 1935.  The later E model was more powerful and better armed and by the summer of 1940 over 500 were in service for the offensive against Great Britain.  By this time, the 109E had already proved to be a competent fighter aircraft in the skies above Poland, France and the low countries.  It met its match over England and was shown to be inferior to the RAFs Spitfire.

Paint Scheme - Messerschmitt Bf109E-3, aircraft flown by Obit. Werner Pichon-Kalau von Hofe, III./JG 51, France, 1940

Airfix Starter Sets are ideal for beginners.  Each Small Starter Set includes glue, brush and four acrylic paints - all that is needed to complete a fabulous first kit!

Good Kit

A nice little kit that i'm currently working on after picking one up at Cosford Air Museum. Opened it to find two missing parts, but replacements have been sorted for one (amazingly quick response, great customer support), and waiting on a reply for the second. So far, the fit has been great and the detail is very good for a kit of its size and scale, having options for deployed or retracted flaps, and an option to show the engine.
For paining instructions, the ones in the kit are quite basic on the inside of the aircraft- as is appropriate for a starter set- so more experienced modellers may want to get instructions for another boxing of the kit, or for the 1/48 version.
Would be a 5/5 if it were not for the missing parts.... Read more

Finding My Feet

This was my first kit back into modeling after more years than I'd care to mention. Nice Kit , no fitting problems no excess flash on the parts. Guess I'm hooked again!

BF109E-3

This kit is an ok fit, though it needed shaving a lot. The detail of the cockpit is decent, although at the 2nd instruction phase, it was not clear what to do with the pedals. The whole model looks smaller than a usual 1:72 kit. Last thing, I have no idea if this is just my kit, but paint no31 WAS NOT GREY, it was a dark green and different to the colour on the pictures I looked at online. But a good kit overall. Recommend it to experienced and new modelers
