Tamiya Messerschmitt Bf 109 E-1 of Eduard Koslowski in 1/72 Scale

This Bf 109 is finished in the early-war scheme of 02 / 71 / 65.  It was assigned to 9. / JG 53 and piloted by Eduard Koslowski, who achieved a total of twelve victories.  During the first months of the war the Germans experienced several “friendly fire” incidents.  As a result some Luftwaffe units began to apply oversized insignia to their aircraft, there are even some examples of aircraft wearing both large and small Balkenkreuz.  This appears to have begun in October but had ended sometime in December. This aircraft displays the oversized insignia on the upper wings.
