Product Description

Product Description

"Nearly all our engagements with 109s took place at around 20,000 - 25,000 ft. The Spitfire had the edge over them in speed and climb, and particularly in turning circle. He went on pulling round as sharply as he could. I followed him without any difficulty and went on firing bursts at him. There were puffs of black smoke and then a trail of white vapour streamed from his aircraft" This actual quote from a Battle of Britain pilot tells of the dogfights between these two exceptional fighters in the skies of 1940.

Product Description

Dogfight Double Gift Set - Spitfire 1A/Messerschmitt Bf109E Spitfire : Piece count : 36 pieces. Length : 12.7 cm. Wingspan : 15.5 cm. Messerschmitt : Piece count : 49 pieces. Length : 12 cm. Wingspan : 13.75 cm. Difficulty level : 1/4. The set includes : - 2 planes to assemble - 8 acrylic paints - 2 paintbrushes - 1 glue tube 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 proven itself to be world class throughout its previous campaigns. However, over southern England in the summer of 1940, it faced a new set of challenges. The most serious test for the Luftwaffe pilots was the widespread use of the RAF's finest fighter, the Supermarine Spitfire. 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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Missing part 2 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase
I bought this for my sons school project on WW2, upon opening I found the cockpit for the Messerschmitt was missing.
Decided to adapt it to resemble damage. I loved these as a boy and was surprised to find a piece missing, it has never happened to me before! probably a rare event!
