Along with the Focke-Wulf Fw 190, the Messerschmitt Bf 109G was the backbone of the Luftwaffe (German Air Force) in fighting the planes of the Allied forces. The Bf 109G was a cutting-edge aircraft with retractable landing gear and an inverted V-12 liquid-cooled engine.
This plane model, that was nicknamed "Bastard of the factory," also happened to be the most produced plane model in German history, with nearly 34,000 being produced. The demand for this model was so great that some of the parts were even produced in concentration camps between 1936 and 1945.
This scale model is a rendition of the plane that the Austrian-born pilot, Walter Nowotny, flew for the Luftwaffe.
