Figure Gallery: Messerschmitt 109 FighterBabe

This figure probably has the hardest name to remember. Her full name is Me-109E-3 German Luftwaffe Maschenung Fighter. Me for Messerschmitt of course. Produced by Fox Shuppan (not the American one), this 1/9 scale figure (17 cm) comes with a extensive booklet on other fighters such as the Spitfire and information on the Battle of Britain. The Me-109 is the main fighter plane used by the German Air force during WWII and flown by the ace pilot with the most kills in history, Erich Hartmann (352 frags).

Her? For a plane? Naturally, for she’s a mecha musume.

This figure is LianYL‘s. Photos by me and him fighting for my camera. Btw this LianYL is also Darkmirage’s arch enemy. They do battle online but both are too meek in real life to do anything else. Nerds. LOL.

Me109 is a slim girl, toting an MG42 machinegun. Her legs are remnants of the plane fuselage, with a propeller on each leg. Both are spinnable. While she has some German insignias printed on, there are no swastikas in sight obviously. She also sports a bushy tail, for some reason. Mecha Musume are actually hybrids of girls, war machines and animals.

The painting is soso, a bit too flat for my liking. I don’t really like the colour scheme as well but I suppose it’s the most realistic out of all the Mecha Musume. Her outfit consists of only a top, with no bottom. A high cut behind also shows off the tail, with the side effect being her butt totally exposed as well.

Me109 sports a twin tail hairstyle and a pair of green ears. Her pose is of the power type, armed and ready with her weapon at the side. She comes with a base printed with her name on it and attached via plugs.

I don’t really like the sculpt and painting that much, but the concept rocks. The original price was 4000 yen and she was released in February 2005.
