  Corgi Aviation Archive US34907 is this superb 1/32 scale Messerschmitt Bf 109G
of III./JG 11, Luftwaffe as flown by Anton Hackl, based at Oldenburg, Germany in February 1944. Complete with 3 scale 3 Figures. Limited Edition of only 1,510 Pieces Worldwide.
1:32 Scale Length 11.25" Width 12.5"

Although devoid of any unit markings, Hackl's fighter features his full scoreboard on the all-white rudder that denotes his position as a formation leader. With his score standing at 133 kills, Hackl had two fighters at his disposal in January 1944- he also flew an Fw 190A-6 on anit-bomber missions, keeping the lighter, more agile Bf 109G-6 for fighter operations. Leaving III./JG 11 May 1944, he then spent time with JG 76, II/JG 26 and JG 00, before returning to JG 11 as Geschwaderkommodore in February 1945. He survived the war with 192 kills to his credit, this tally including an astonishing 32 heavy bombers.

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
