There are lots of E1 kits available in the Battle Of Britain paint scheme but this new Hasegawa kit represents the early RLM 70/71 1939 "splinter" paint scheme as flown during the Polish campaign. This kit will make a great addition to your collection of early war aircraft.

The E-1 production version kept two 7.92 mm (.312 in) MG 17s above the engine and two more in the wings. Later, many were modified to the E-3 armament standard. The E-1B was a small batch of E-1s that became the first operational Bf 109 fighter bomber, or Jagdbomber (usually abbreviated to Jabo). These were fitted with either an ETC 500 bomb rack, carrying one 250 kg (550 lb) bomb or four 50 kg (110 lb) bombs. The E-1 was also fitted with the Reflexvisier "Revi" gunsight. Communications equipment was the FuG 7 Funkgerät 7 (radio set) short-range radio apparatus, effective to ranges of 48-56 km (30-35 mi). A total of 1,183 E-1's were built.
