Both kits are based on new toolings from 2011/12, with this release being exclusive to Modelzone. Unable to connect either kit for this type of double/set to a timeline. The Tomahawk is based on original tooling A01003, and the Bf109 on A01008 (as far as I can figure).

Bill Gilman Nice set - what are the markings?
20. May 2013 at 03:19:09
Robert R I think so too :)
The Tomahawk is 112 Sqn, AN128, simply coded 'B' and named "Menace". Airfix date it at 1942 and simply Western Desert. The Bf109 is from 8./ZG1 and is marked S9+LS, based El Daba, Egypt, 1942. Did a little bit of digging brought up some conflicting info on Tomahawk and nothing for the 109. From what I can gather "Menace" was a favourite of Ace Flt Lt. Neville Bowker at Sidi Barrani. It was in this aircraft he got his confirmed number 3, taking down an S.79 on 14th Sep 1941. He was finally shot down (taken PoW) in 1941, albeit in a different aircraft (Tomahawk (AN283). Not sure what happened to Menace (AN12 8). However by time of El Alamein in 1942 (both July and Oct battles) 112 Sqn were reportedly flying kittyhawks. :S

Robert R ***AN218 = "Menace" ......sorry.

Tom The Bf-109 has the extra sprue contained in A02062 (tropical filter, alternate spinners & centreline stores)

Robert R Also noticed the Bf-109 Trop filter on the new kit doesn't have the mesh detail you get on the old kit (but does look a little neater/straighter), and only comes with the 250kg bomb or drop- tank, and not the extra option of 4x 50kg bombs that came with the old kit (A02048A)
