BUC32-011 1/32 Scale ME109E-1 with Hispano Suiza Engine, Resin BUC 32-011
In stock: 16


In 1942, the Spanish government arranged a manufacturing licence with Messerschmitt AG to build the Bf 109G-2, although the DB 605A engines, propellers, instruments and weapons were to be supplied from Germany. This proved impossible as Germany was incapable of meeting its own needs let alone Spain's, and only 25 airframes (without their tails) and less than half the necessary drawings were actually delivered.[1] Consequently, Hispano Aviación replaced the DB 605A engine with the 1,600 hp HS 89-12Z and the project was renamed Bf 109J by Messerschmitt. [2] The HS 89-12Z engine performed a successful flight in a Bf-109E used as flying testbed, in Barcelona in 1944 (Wikipedia).

This conversion kit contains all the necessary resin parts to convert an early model 1/32 scale BF 109E into this HS 89-12Z flying test bed. Eduard BF 109E is the recommended donor kit for this conversion. Decals for two versions included.
