Airfix 2012 Club Membership Kit - 1/48 JAAF 109E

The Airfix Club 2012 Membership limited edition kit included with every subscription is their excellent new 1/48th scale Messerschmitt Bf-109E3/E7 but with special markings options for a captured machine flown by the RAF and for an aircraft imported and flown by the Japanese Army.

Two Bf-109E aircraft were imported by Japan and test flown by the JAAF although three were originally contracted for purchase. They are usually described as being E7 type but were actually E4 type. When the kit becomes available I'll post more detailed information about the JAAF 109's including their colour schemes.
