The silhouette of the Messerschmitt Bf109 is an unforgettable one. This fighter aircraft formed the backbone of the Luftwaffe for the duration of WWII. Its first operational service was actually in the Spanish Civil War, and the Bf109 holds the distinction of being the most widely produced fighter in history. Nearly 34,000 fighters were produced up till April 1945! A range of wartime variants were developed, with the E series being the first major redesign of this highly successful aircraft that wrought havoc on Allied and Russian opponents. The features that distinguished the E (“Emil”) model included a more powerful DB 601 engine, two heavier 20mm MG FF cannons and larger fuel tanks. The E-3 was the most common version of the Emil (4,722 units produced), and the type participated widely in the early battles of WWII, as well as the famous Battle of Britain.
It’s this Bf109E-3 fighter sub-type that’s presented in new 1/32 scale Wing-Tech kit from Cyber-Hobby. Being based on the previously released Bf109E-4, the kit is simply stunning. Careful engineering has resulted in precise detail and easy assembly for modelers of all skill levels. Every detail inside and out is accurately presented in plastic, and some parts such as the pilot’s seatbelt are even included as photo-etched metal items for superior realism. DS is also used for the landing-gear compartment in order to provide the necessary level of detail. The cockpit canopy is a brand new tooling produced especially for this kit. To keep modelers happy, a variety of marking options are available in the form of high-quality Cartograf decals. This is a fine Cyber-Hobby kit of an iconic German fighter - “Emil” is bursting to get out of the box and take to the air!
