MPM Messerschmitt Bf 109 H-1 Höhenjäger in 1/72 Scale

The Bf 109 H-series was Messerschmitt’s bid to satisfy the RLM’s high-altitude fighter requirement, which was issued in anticipation of the American introduction of the B-29 Superfortress to the European Theater.  The design optimized the engine for high altitude performance and extended the wings.  In the end, the RLM favored Kurt Tank’s Ta 152 design, although Messerschmitt produced a small number of Bf 109H’s, a few of which saw operational service according to some sources.
