Messerschmitt Bf 109E-4, W.NR.3579 "White 14", Fahnrich Hans Joachim Marseille, 1.(J)/LG.2, Calais-Marck Airfield, France, September 1940

Aviation Archive Nicely painted, quality insignia, and of course the usual great heft. However, the yellow is becoming a bit passe. It would be nice to get an early-war green camo version or grey like the attached. Anywho, the abreviated aerials have gotten a lot of attention. My own theory is that the pointy things are from some 1/144 scale version of something similar. Who knows (?), but I couldn't find any illustrations of the E-type showing a short aerial, and it would be nice to see Corgi address the issue. This is the "disappointing quality" part of my front page intro. I could out-do Stephen King in blood curdling tales...
