Germany’s Messerschmitt 109 was the top World War 2 fighter until the Spitfire became the dominant force in aerial combat. Built by the same company that would later go on to manufacture weird bubble cars the 109 was hugely successful in the skies over Europe, and much of the rest of the world. Being on the losing side has meant the Messerschmitt has perhaps slipped from the public conscious when compared to its Allied rivals, but the 109’s pilots were no less skilled or brave than those flying the Allies’ Spitfires, Hurricanes or Mustangs. Daniel Siskind has built two versions of the famous German fighter (hence the title), and you can see more of them and his other military builds on Flickr.
