Manfred Meurer was appointed Gruppenkommandeur of I./NJG 1 on 28 September 1943, succeeding Hauptmann Hans-Dieter Frank (55 victories, RK) lost on the night of 27-28 September. The unit was equipped with the latest German night-fighter, the He 219, and Meurer was to gain five victories flying the type. On the night of 12/13 December he shot down a RAF Mosquito to bring up his 60th victory. He recorded his 61st and 62nd victories on 16/17 December. On the night of 21-22 January 1944 he collided with a RAF Lancaster raiding Berlin. His He 219 A-0 (W.Nr. 190070) "G9+BB" crashed at speed into the bomber and both aircraft carried their crews to their deaths. Manfred Meurer flew 130 combat missions achieving 65 victories. Included in his score are 40 four-engined bombers and two Mosquitos. All his victories were scored at night.

Please note: Although this model includes a display stand and removeable landing gear, it does not include any closed gear doors and is best suited to "gear down" display only.

Heinkel He 219 Uhu

Designed as a nightfighter derivative of an earlier fighter-bomber design, the He219 was first flown on November 15th, 1942.
