1/33 Messerschmitt Bf-109E Red “13” Germany 1940 Paper Model




The E-series of the Me-109 was the main Luftwaffe fighter at the beginning of World War Two and remained the main service type until the F model began to replace it in 1941. Standard armament was two 7.92mm machine guns and two 20mm cannon in the wings. Some later E models were equipped with a centerline rack for a bomb or a drop tank. Other advanced features included leading edge slats, electrically-operated variable-pitch propeller, and pilot armor. Luftwaffe pilots and ground crew called it the Emil, after the model designation.

This paper model “Emil” wears the markings of “Red 13” of 6.(J)/Tragergruppe 186 at Wangerooge, and is shown in the camouflage in use in September 1940. A separate swasttika-free version is included in the download.

Layered wheels, rolled landing gear legs, boxed wheel wells. Duo-fold prop blades. Full cockpit; patterns for transparent canopy parts. Degree of Difficulty: 4/5.  If you enjoy building this paper model, please contribute a review!

    This is mostly an excellent and easy to build kit. However there were some mistakes in the colour, most notably the wing roots and the ailerons were reversed and did not match the rest of the wing. A few places are not clear in the instructions, such as how to make the radiators and the correct direction of some parts. On the other hand, the fit of all the parts is very good and the printing has accurate colours. It scaled down to 1:48 with no problems.
