1/72 Spitfire Mk.I and Bf109E "Battle of Britain" Limited Edition

From July 10th until October 31st of 1940, the world saw the largest military campaign to be fought entirley by aircraft to date. The German Luftwaffe's primary objection was to gain air superioty over England as well as target and destroy British RAF airfields, infrastructure, coastal shipping convoys and shipping centers and later political targets using terror bombing tactics. In what was the largest arial bombing campaign to date, the British were able to overcome the Luftwaffe and had set an imortant milestone in World War Two history, defeating the German Luftwaffe in a crucial turning point in the war. Two aircraft from both sides played a part in this highly documented battle, The British Spitfire Mk.I and the Luftwaffe Bf109E. Both advanced fighters for the day and considered by many to be evenly match oppenats. Hasegawa brings the Battle of Britain to life with this limited Edition kit featuring these two iconic fighters. The Spitfire Mk.I features 28 highly detailed parts and decals to replicate RAF 19SQ Commanding Officer Squadron leader, Brian Lane, September 1940. The Messerschmitt Bf109E includes 36 highly detailed parts and decals to replicate Luftwaffe I./JG3 Kommandeur Hauptmann Hans von Hahn, France August 1940.
