JG-52 THE GRAPHITE EDITION
by Robert Taylor
It was the foundation upon which the Luftwaffe was built and flew throughout WWII. It was flown by some of the greatest fighter Aces of all time, and credited with more air victories than any other fighter in history. It was the Messerschmitt Bf109.
One of the finest fighter aircraft ever to take to the skies, the Bf109 was flown by the Luftwaffe’s greatest Aces - men like Hartmann, Galland, Rall, Reinert and Krupinski. The drawing has been skillfully executed by Robert, the world's foremost aviation artist, and is an outstanding opportunity for all collectors of aviation art and historical signatures.
