In 1940 Erich "Bubi" Hartmann joined the Luftwaffe and in 1942 was posted to JG 52 on the Eastern Front. Flying with some of the most experienced pilots Hartmann soon developed his formidable tactics. On October 29, 1943; having scored 148 victories; Hartmann was awarded the Knight's Cross. On August 25, 1944 he was decorated with the Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross with Oak Leaves, Swords and Diamonds having a total of 301 victories. By the end of WWII Hartmann had 352 victories; all on the Eastern Front. Soviets called him the "Black Devil".

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.

JC's 1:72 scale Bf 109 is a high-quality reproduction at an affordable price. Some of the details on this beautiful model are so fine they could be overlooked, such as tiny pad printed placards that are only visible upon close inspection (a feature rarely seen in models of this scale). The wing is solid diecast metal, with trim-tab detail and a metal pitot tube. Each release has a display stand bearing details such as the aircraft's name, operator or type. Some releases have the early bird-cage style canopy while later variants feature an upgraded canopy, and some also feature center-mounted drop tanks and wing-mounted cannons.
