This model kit requires assembly. Cement, paint and other construction materials not included unless specifically stated in the description.
The HA-1112 is a Spanish-built version of the famous Bf109G fighter. With no German engines available after 1945, the Hispano-Suiza engines powered early postwar versions. Later versions used the Rolls-Royce Merlin engine. Altogether there were nine different Spanish variants using either of the two engines. Production ceased in the Spring of 1961. The installation of the upright V-12 engine makes the nose contours of the HA-1112 quite different from those of the original BF109G, hence its nickname 'Buchon.' The 'Buchon' are popular performers and are among the only surviving examples of the famous German aircraft that can be seen in the air.
The legacy lives on with Academy's Hispano HA-1112 in 1/48 scale. From the razorback canopy to the nose contours, this kit is a bona fide replica of the Spanish bird. Comes with detailed cockpit and landing gear, as well as fully engraved panel lines and rivet details. Accurate decals for Spanish and German Air Force. With the Hispano, you get what you expect from Academy: a quality kit at an affordable price.
