hola amigos!!
1 September 1942 had been Marseille's most successful day, destroying 17 enemy aircraft, and September would see him score 54 kills, his most productive month. The 17 enemy aircraft shot down included eight in 10 minutes, as a result of this feat he was presented with a type 82 Volkswagen Kübelwagen by an Italian Regia Aeronautica squadron, on which his Italian comrades had painted "Otto" (Italian language: Otto = eight).This was the most aircraft from Western Allied air forces shot down by a single pilot in one day. Only one pilot, Emil "Bully" Lang on 4 November 1943, would better this score, against the Soviet Air Force on the Eastern Front.

Hi amelinas :)
I saw this 1/24 figure of Hans-Joachim Marseille and I told it should be looking great in diorama with some of Trumpeter’s Messerschmitt in 1/24!
I realize we don’t know each other mate, but I told if you haven’t started the figure set I will appreciate if you give me the chance to have this figure of OTTO w/Marseille just for ten-fifteen days and I will send it back to you plus some extras! :idea:
Cheers
Jordan
