The Messerschmitt was the most redesigned and tested German fighter plane during the WW2 period with over 34,000 built! It was designed specifically to take part in a Luftwaffe competition to select a new fighter aircraft as Germany rearmed in contravention of the treaty of Versailles. The Vintage Model Company have created this authentic representation of the enemy engine for all modelling fans, but especially for the generation who lived through the turbulent times of 1939-1945.
