Kit# 9873 - German Night Fighter Pilot
Valiant Miniature Kit# 9873 - German Night Fighter Pilot, WWII. The German Night Fighter Pilots, the lone eagles of the Luftwaffe, went up night after night to duel with the British bombers that were destroying their homeland from one end to the other. From an inauspicious beginning of only two squadrons with less than 30 single engine day fighters, the Nachtjagd (Night Fighter) grew to a force of some 700 specially equipped twin engine machines. In the Spring of 1944 the Night Fighters inflicted a devastating blow against the British, inflicting losses of over 100 British bombers on a single night.
