Undoubtedly one of the most recognizable fighter aircraft in history alongside the Supermarine Spitfire and the P-51 Mustang, the Messerschmitt Bf 109 is as popular in plastic as in real life. There are almost certainly more kits and accessories of the Bf 109 across the full range of popular scales than any other modelling subject. This second Bf 109 title in the "Osprey Modelling" series focuses on the Messerchmitt Bf 109F and early G models, the most streamlined of all the Messerschmitt production aircraft. They served in all Luftwaffe theatres, from the deserts of North Africa to the vast frozen plains of the Soviet Union. Detailing six different builds across the scales from 1/44 to 1/24, this book is an excellent source of reference for both the beginner and expert modeller on one of the most effective killing machines of World War II.
