Historical Background:

The Ms.406 was a French fighter produced starting in 1938. It represents the most numerous French fighter in the early stages of WWII. Compared to its competitors, it was lacking in armor and firepower, though it was maneuverable. The Bf109 completely outperformed it and outclassed it during the Battle of France. The French lost nearly twice as many Ms.406 for every plane that they managed to shoot down. After the French surrendered, Germany captured a large number of Ms.406 and sold them off to the Finnish. Finnish air units managed to score 121 kills for 15 losses.


Plastic Figure Notes:

This is an Axis and Allies Air Force Miniature model. They are not the same scale as the planes in AAM but are the same scale as the tanks. The models are all very detailed and well painted.
