Hans-Joachim (Jochen) Marseille & his Bf 109

[Strictly Limited]

“The Star of Africa” and, according to fellow German Air Ace General Adolf Galland, “one of the finest fighter pilots the world has ever seen”.

By the time he was killed in a flying accident in September 1942, Marseille had shot down 158 enemy aircraft, most of them in North Africa in an amazing sixteen month period.

Another member of JG27 and flying the Messerschmitt Bf 109 “F” Marseille reached the zenith of his flying career when on September 1, 1942 he shot down 17 enemy aircraft during 3 combat sorties in a 24 hour period! This unique and memorable feat earned him “The Knight’s Cross with Oak Leaves, Swords and Diamonds”.

During his all-too short career in North Africa he flew four different Bf 109 F models and it is one of these K&C has chosen to portray.

This particular one features the colourful partly blood red tail complete with “kill” markings and light weathering.

Just 999 of this very special STRICLY LIMITED “Jochen” Marseille Bf 109 are being produced. It comes with a detailed (and numbered) summary of Marseille’s career and in a specially-designed box.

It is sure to be a much sought-after piece and will fit into any “Desert War” collection. A standing figure of Marseille is also, of course, included.
