Overview
 
1/48 Scale Supermarine Spitfire Mk.Vb & Messerschmitt Bf 109E Dogfight Doubles Gift Set. Airfix. The World War II Axis powers targetted the strategic British-controlled Island of Malta beginning in 1940, as the War in Europe expanded to North Africa. Malta served Britain as a strategic point from which to prevent supplies reaching the German Afrikakorps and their Italian allies, and, in turn, the Germans and Italians repeatedly struck the British in Malta. Initially Malta's only defending fighter aircraft were outdated Gloster Gladiators and then Hawker Hurricanes but at the height of the battle, cannon armed and tropicalized Spitfire Mk.Vbs were used to intercept the German Junkers Ju 88 and Ju 87 Stuka dive bombers, which were escorted by Messerschmitt Bf 109Es. Decals and color markings for Supermarine Spitfire Mk.Vb, No. 229 Squadron, Royal Air Force, Qrendi, Malta, December 1942 and Messerschmitt Bf 109E-7, aircraft flown by Oberleutnant Joachim Mncheberg, 7./JG26 Schlageter, Gela, Sicily, Spring 1941. Also includes (10) Humbrol acrylic paints (in plastic pots), (2) paintbrushes (#0 and #4) and 5ml tube of Humbrol Poly Cement. CANNOT be shipped via air!
