27104 Corgi   Messerschmitt Bf109G-2 - Desert Camo, RAF Musuem (1,200) £ 0.00
      Out of stock
  Messerschmitt Bf109G-2, as preserved at the RAF Musuem Hendon. Limited edition of only 1,200 pieces.

Built originally as a Bf109F but converted to G-2 standard while on the production line, ‘Black 6’ has since gone on to become one of the most famous Messerschmitt 109s anywhere in the world. Captured from the Luftwaffe in North Africa in November 1942 the aircraft was first evaluated by the RAF’s Middle Eastern command before being allocated to RAE Farnborough for further testing.

Post war the aircraft was allocated for a museum collection and passed around various establishments until it was restored to airworthiness in 1991. However its flying career was again short-lived, crash landing on what was to be its final flight, severely damaging the fuselage. However a team from Messerschmitt Restorations Ltd did a sterling job and ‘Black 6’ is now displayed in perfect condition at RAF Hendon, a fine testament to those that flew, evaluated and restored her.
