A501351:72 Dogfight Double Gift Set United Kingdom Spitfire 1A and German Messerschmitt Bf109EBoxed Gift SetAfter 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.Contents1:72 Supermarine Spitfire MkIa1:72 Messerschmitt Bf109E-48 Acrylic Paints2 BrushesPoly CementSpecifications:Number of Parts: Spitfire 36; Messerschmitt 49Dimensions (mm): Spitfire L127 x W155; Messerschmitt L120 x W137Skill Level 1Requires Painting
