The Messerschmitt Bf 109 (also known as the Messerschmitt Me 109) was a German World War II fighter aircraft designed by Willy Messerschmitt and Robert Lusser. The Messerschmitt Bf 109 was used by the Luftwaffe, but first saw operation during the Spanish Civil War.
The Messerschmitt Bf 109 was originally designed as an interceptor, though later models were developed for bomber escort, fighter bomber, day-, night- all-weather fighter, bomber destroyer, ground-attack aircraft, and as reconnaissance aircraft.
The Bf 109 was the most produced warplane during World War II, with 30,573 examples built during the war, and the most produced fighter aircraft in history, with a total of 33,984 units produced up to April 1945.
Art and design has interested me since an early age, so much so that art class was the one lesson at school i genuinely looked forward to every week. After school and university I had the fortune to be able continue my passion, working as a senior designer at Conde Nast Publications in London. After an exhilarating 12 years I bid farewell to my job and England, and moved a couple of thousand miles south to Spain. I now dedicate myself full time to my artistic pursuits in the tranquil and idyllic surroundings of a Mediterranean coastal village. All artwork is copyright of Michael Tompsett.
