Bf 108B/D Taifun

1/72 Messerschmitt Bf 108B/D Taifun




The Messerschmitt Bf 108 Taifun was a German single-engine sport and touring aircraft, developed by Bayerische Flugzeugwerke in the 1930s. The Bf 108 was of all-metal construction. Soon after the first production aircraft began to roll off the assembly line in Augsburg, several Bf 108s had set endurance records. The Bf 108 was adopted into Luftwaffe service during World War II, where it was primarily used as a personel tranport and liaison aircraft. The aircraft involved in the Mechelen Incident was a Bf 108. Production of the Bf 108 was transferred to occupied France during World War II and production continued after the war as the Nord 1000 Pinguin .



What can we say about this kit ? 1/72 is not my scale , but in this case I can say "wel done Fly" !
I honestly did not expect that such a small kit could be so carefully crafted, designed, rich in goodies, and ultimately so qualitative without going away in price. 
Clear casting , perfectly detailed tiny parts , resin accessories and a fantastic decals sheet , set a scene of enjoyment for the fanatic of the 1/72 scale .





Not less than 108 parts (108 like the plane type ?) , 80 of them in tan styrene , 22 resin and 6 clear (transparent is relatively blurry but the overall image of kit compensates with the above ) .



Decal sheet is beyond any expectation , with perfect printing , very thin film , right colors and very clear details (look the Messerschmitt logo) and provides all the necessary for two of sixteen schemes !

At the end , the price is once more a pleasant surprise : 22,50€ @ 31/03/2019 from Fly e-shop.
