The Messerschmitt Bf 109 was the classic German combat plane of the Second World War. A worthy adversary of the Spitfire, it is familiar to those of a certain age in part because of the Airfix models that were such a popular toy in the 1960s and 1970s. The picture in this 1,000-piece jigsaw is Roy Cross's famous artwork for the Airfix kit of the German fighter.
