Bf 109F-2 1/72 1941 (AC026)


Messerschmitt Bf 109F, as flown by Luftwaffe Ace Hans Hahn in the summer of 1941 over France. Decorated in the grey/green camouflage, distinctive silver and black markings and with duck egg blue underside, the highly detailed aircraft shows Hahn's tally of 'kills' on the tail, as well as his black and red cockerel emblem on the side. Hans 'Assi' Hahn was born in April 1914 at Gotha in Thuringen and joined the Luftwaffe in 1935. Following various promotions and action in both the Battle of France and the Battle of Britain, Hahn's tally of 'kills' had risen to 20 by September 1940 and he was awarded the Ritterkreuz for his achievements. A month later, he was promoted to the rank of Hauptmann and appointed Gruppenkommandeur of III/JG 2. In August 1941, he was awarded the Eichenlaub for having achieved 41 victories. During his service on the Western Front, he shot down 66 Allied aircraft before being transferred to the Eastern Front towards the end of 1942. Hahn had recorded 108 victories by February 1943 when he was shot down by a Russian aircraft and made a prisoner of war. He was released in 1950 and after a successful post-war business career, he retired to the south of France in 1977. Hans Hahn died in 1982 in Munich.
