LW044 Werner Molder's Messerschmitt Bf109 "Emil"
King & Country
This E"" model 109 is in the personal markings of Oberst Werner Molders, one of Germany’s most famous and highly decorated fighter aces. Molders, who had previously flown in the Spanish Civil War would go on to have 115 “kills” to his credit before himself being killed in an air crash in 1941. The aircraft we have portrayed is one Molders flew when he took command of JG51 in July 1940. At that time he was the Luftwaffe’s youngest ""Kommodore"". His best friend was another top German ace… Adolf Galland.
