Calendar Plane of the Month June: Messerschmit BF109F-4 and Spitfire Mk Vb

Another dogfight double this month.  This North African themed set didn't exist when Triple P was younger but the desert camouflage looks very effective.  The RAF had been suffering in the air against the BF 109Fs of the Luftwaffe but the arrival in theatre of the Mk V Spitfire not only regained the balance in the air war but tipped it in favour of the RAF.

When Triple P was younger he was always a bit disappointed of the size of the models of these two planes in 1/72 scale; which is whey he tended to build bombers.  This would be an impressive package in 1/48 scale, however.
