    Hi all.

    I'm trying to model a late 1940 Bf109 E-3 of 2/Jg26 and based on an old contemporary photo of the 109s of 2/Jg26 at dispersal, I would like to model either Red 1 or Red 6 or Red 9.I am however finding it very hard to get any info on any of their individual Werknummers (Serial numbers) and which individual pilots each aircraft was assigned to.any help would be great!

    Thanks,

    vh

    Bf109E-3 "Red 1" was flown by the Staffel Kapitan Oberleutnant Fritz Losigkeit. He held this post from Sept 1939 - May 1941 when he was sent to Tokyo, Japan as the Luftwaffe's Air Attache.

    On the 29th Sept. 1940 Losigkeit crashlanded his Bf109E 'Red 1' recorded as W.Nr.2767, as a result of engine trouble. It is noted as an E-4 but the photo's clearly show what appears to be an E-3 rounded canopy....
