Corgi Aviation Archive Collector Series AA34901
Messerschmitt Bf 109G Diecast Model
Luftwaffe II/JG 300, "Red 6", Arnold Doring, Germany, August 1943

1:32 Scale   Length   Width
Messerschmitt Bf 109G   11.25"   12.5"

The original "Wilde Sau" unit, JG 300 used the Bf109 to fill the gap caused by the Allied use of "Window," which temporarily blinded radar and hampered the conventional night fighters. Under the "Wilde Sau" system, the single engined fighters of an entire staffel or gruppe were readied for incoming attack by Allied fighters/bombers. Divided into sections, the first section would take off within 15 minutes of enemy aircraft being expected and the following sections would take off at set periods afterwards. Dorings 2.Staffel existed from August 1943 and the application of black paint over standard day fighter markings was relatively unusual. Uniquely, Doring scored his first ten victories as a bomber pilot with KGs 53 and 55. Transferring to the "Wilde Sau" force, he also flew with II./JG 300 before another change to NJG 3.

Messerschmitt Bf 109G

Designed to meet a Luftwaffe need for a single-seat fighter/interceptor, the Messerschmitt Bf 109 was first flown on May 28th, 1935. Its all-metal construction, closed canopy and retractable gear made the Bf 109 one of the first true modern fighters of WWII. This versatile aircraft served in many roles and was the most produced aircraft of the war and the backbone of the Luftwaffe, and was flown by Germany's top three aces, who claimed a total of 928 victories between them. Armed with two cannons and two machine guns, the Bf 109's design underwent constant revisions, which allowed it to remain competitive until the end of the war.

Corgi's 1:32 scale Bf 109G is a large model loaded with features. All of the control surfaces are movable with metal hinges. The landing gear is hinged and can be locked into position for ground or in-flight display. The removable upper portion of the engine cowling hides a detailed inverted DB 601 V-12 engine and two engine-bay mounted machine guns. The hinged canopy opens to reveal a pilot figure and cockpit detail. The wing has forward leading edge slats and independently deployable radiator cowls. Each release includes a removable center mounted drop tank, and some releases also include 20mm cannon pods under each wing (see photos).
