Germany Bf109E-4 I./JG 77 “Blitz” France Summer 1940 WWII HA8713 Scale 1:48 Hobby Master Airpower series 1/72 Scale 1:48 Die-cast metal. Superb detailing in 1/48scale. Pre-painted with pad applied markings. Fully assembled. Supplied weapons are not permanently attached. Crew figures Display stand included. Option to display model with wheels up or down. Minimum use of plastic. Very collectable. The first German mass produced 109 fighter was the Bf-109E that has been mistakenly referred to as the Me-109. The Bf is the designator for the Bayerische Flugzeugwerke (BFW) (Bavarian Aircraft Works) that produced the original aircraft. In 1938 Messerschmitt took over BFW but throughout WWII German handbooks and documents referred to the aircraft as the Bf-109. By the end of 1939 the Bf-109E (Emil) had replaced all other 109 variants and equipped 13 Gruppens with 40 aircraft each. The Bf-109 was the main single-engine aircraft until the Fw-190 came along. JG 77 (Jagdgeschwader 77) took part in the Battle of Britain, Norway, North Africa, Italy, Greece, Crete and the Eastern Front. In April 1940 JG 77 helped with the invasion of Norway, in May the invasion of France. I./JG 77 remained in France to take part in the Battle of Britain while the other Gruppens were sent elsewhere. During the summer of 1940 I./JG 77 aircraft wore lightning bolts (Blitz or plural Blitzen) the length of the fuselage sides. In November 1940 I./JG 77 became Stab IV./JG 51.

Another HobbyMaster Meisterstück
I'm always thrilled to acquire another HM and this is no expectation. It now completes my Battle of Britain HM trio - Spit, Hurri, and Willi's Bf 109. All seems perfect to me - camo, surface detail, decals, and pilot. It comes with a stand but mine sits on her undercarriage - and a nice surprise this attached and stays attached well - often an issue with such models.

I was wondering how the open canopy would be accommodated - it hinges to the side on the 109 - and there are two canopies included. I left mine closed as the open spoils the sleek menace of the "Emil".
