Messerscmitt Bf109E-4

Flown by

Oberleutant Franz von Werra

Guppen-Adjutant 1/JG3

Samer, France August 1940

Kit: Airfix

Scale: 1:72

Paint: XF-23 Light Blue, XF-2 White, XF-24 Dark Grey, XF-27 Black Green, XF-13 JA Green, XF-22 RLM Grey, XF-69 NATO Black.

Build thread: HERE

Franz von Werra is notorious in history for being the only German Prisoner of War to escape form captivity and make his way back to Germany. His escape was depicted in the British film of 1957 'The One That Got Away'. Which can be seen in full on You Tube

Werra was shot down twice before being taken captive. Firstly in northern France during the Battle for France. After being attacked his engine caught fire and he had to make a forced landing. This resulted in the aircraft being fitted with a new engine cowl, explaining the lighter colour of the engine cowl. The fuselage sides are also said caked in smoke and soot stains from the engine fire.

Werre was shot down for the second time on the 5th September 1940 and crash landed in a field in Kent and was taken prisoner by an unarmed army cook! Werner was held in various camps in the UK and made several escape attempts before being transported to Canada where he escaped from a train and walked over the frozen St Laurence River and crossed the border in the the then neutral USA. Despite attempts by Canada to have him extradited and America to hold him eventual crossed the border in to Mexico and made his way to South America where he sailed for Spain and then got back to Germany on 198th April 1941 where he was decorated with the Knights Cross of the Iron Cross by Adolf Hitler.

Werra returned to the Luftwaffe and on 25 October 1941 Werra took off in Bf 109F-4 (W.Nr. 7285) on a practice flight. He suffered engine failure and crashed into the sea north of Vlissingen and was killed. His body was never found.

The aerial on this aircraft was unusual in that JG52 formation leaders had the normal aerial supplemented with additional aerials leading to the tips of the tailplanes in order to improve radio communications.

Flugplatz Leeuwarden, summer 1943, The Netherlands


Reichdefense


2.JG27


Bf109G4/R6


Airfix-Heller-Amodel-Revell models scale 1/72




The rather basic Leeuwarden civil airfield in Friesland, the NorthWest of the Netherlands, was developed by the Germans as a large nigthfigher base during the war, but the onset of the American daybombing campaign of Germany in the summer of 1943 triggered the recall of a significant force of Bf109's from several theatres (mainy from the Channel front), closer to the Reich's borders. Leeuwarden in that summer of 1943 was in operation day and night with Bf109's and Bf110's.



This diorama started out with a Nachtjagd themed build, but while learning the history of the Rechsverteidigung I planned to add two Bf109's. The diorama is built on two Ikea Billy bookshelves and can be put together in different ways making different setups possible.


Reading the Bf109 STGB I decided to build and rebuild all Bf109's from the stack, the basketcase basket, and very old built models in my collection, so I came to six in total. One was a Bf109Z, so I had one frame without wings, thats the one in the hangar. As a result of building six and not two, there is no place for the Nightfighters that i had already built so I need to add a third bookselve to have all Bf109's and the Bf110's on the diorama. Build is posted here:
