Details

The Messerschmitt BF-109 was a standard German Luftwaffe single seat fighter for nearly a decade. It is believed that more than 33,000 of these fighters were produced between 1936 and the end of World War 2. During the war, the BF-109 fought on every front in which the Luftwaffe was engaged. The BF-109 first saw actual combat during the Spanish Civil War where it proved to be an effective weapon against the Russian Fighters of the Republic forces. The BF-109 was considered an excellent fighter since it handled well and possessed excellent low speed control response. The BF-109's were produced in quantity right up to the end of the war in 1945.

Guillow was founded in 1926 by a World War 1 US Navy aviator and is the world's largest manufacturer of balsa wood model airplane kits. They have an enviable reputation for producing quality kits with excellent building instructions and plans.

The 500 series (16½" wing span) of WW2 models is their most popular range and is suitable for ages 10 years and upwards. These easy building balsa airplane kits contain laser cut balsa parts, plastic cowls and canopies, decals, plastic prop, wheels, tissue and a 24-page model building booklet. Models are approximately 1:30 scale.

Each kit is supplied with a rubber band motor for powered flight but can also be adapted for gas powered control line flying with a .020 engine (not included).

These model construction kits have scale realism for the super detail fan and light weight for those who build and fly. Each model is a small but faithful replica of a well known airplane.

A great kit representing excellent value for money and hours of fun!

Requires adhesives and basic modelling tools to complete.
