The Messerschmitt Bf 109 is a German World War II fighter aircraft that was the backbone of the Luftwaffe’s fighter force. The Bf 109 first saw operational service in 1937 during the Spanish Civil War and was still in service at the dawn of the jet age at the end of World War II in 1945. It was one of the most advanced fighters of the era.
We’ve employed both the real aircraft as well as a stunning replica that works brilliantly as set dressing or on a gimbal for action.
As a flying aircraft they are quite a rare beast, there are a couple based in the UK and then some others in Europe. We’ve worked with most of the operators and most of them have taken our temporary paint at some point.
