Me109 The Messerschmitt Bf109E Ensemble Edition

Matted Edition: $135
Silver Framed Eddition: $175
Gunmetal Framed Edition: $175

The rugged, agile and heavily armed Me109 was the only Luftwaffe fighter to be built and continually developed throughout the war. This robust fighter saw service in every theatre in Europe and the Eastern Front with many Luftwaffe fighter pilots – including the 275-victory ace Gunther Rall – preferring the Me109 in combat to any other German fighter produced in WWII. A familiar adversary of the RAF pilots in the Battle of Britain, this unique Ensemble is signed by three highly respected Luftwaffe aces who took part.

The Messerschmitt Bf109E Ensemble Edition



A Commemorative Trilogy Remembering THE BATTLE OF BRITAIN

The Me109 was the Luftwaffe’s principal single-seater fighter aircraft during the Battle of Britain, and the only Luftwaffe combat aircraft to be continually developed and built throughout the 1939-45 war. Powered by a Daimler-Benz engine its performance was similar to the Spitfire and when two experience opposing pilots came face-to-face, the advantages of one was generally cancelled out by advantages of the other. But with a cannon firing through the nose-cone, and 4 machine guns, the Me109 had greater firepower than the Spitfire or Hurricanes’ smaller caliber machine guns.

The second Ensemble in this unique Battle of Britain Trilogy acknowledges the major role of the Me109 fighter pilots who flew and fought over England in 1940, and the undoubted quality of the Messerschmitt Bf109 aircraft. This highly accurate portrayal of the veritable Me109 by accomplished aviation artist Darryl Legg is triple mounted with silver-finished Luftwaffe pilots wings and carries the original signatures of three of the Luftwaffe’s most accomplished and successful Me109 fighter aces who took part in air fighting over England in 1940:

Major Heinz Lange, Knights Cross
General Gunther Rall, Knights Cross, Oak leaves with Swords
Major Erich Rudorffer, Knights Cross, Oak leaves with Swords

Framing Offer (overall frame size 17½” x 13½”) Order famed or unframed – you have the choice of brushed steel-silver or gun-metal finishes.
