Hawker Mk-1 Hurricane Junkers JU-87B Stuka Messerschmitt Bf-109

Hawker Mk-1 Hurricane

Balsa wood model airplane kit by Guillows.
During the famous Battle of Britain, more than three-fifths of the R.A.F. Fighter Command's squadrons used Hawker Hurricanes. This immortal partner of the Supermarine Spitfire destroyed the German bombers while the Spitfires engaged the Messerschmitt BF-109's. The Hurricane was the first combat aircraft capable of exceeding 300 M.P.H., and it became the most versatile single-seat warplane to emerge from World War 2. This plane was used in the Western Desert conflict as a fighter-bomber and a modified version, called the Sea Hurricane, became the first single-seat fighter to serve with the Fleet Air Arm. Wing Span: 16½" Scale: 1/32 Min. Age: 10.

Messerschmitt Bf-109

Balsa wood model airplane kit by Guillows.
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. Wing Span: 16½" Scale: 1/32 Min. Age: 10.
