This "Gustav" was assembled from at least three machines: W.Nr.14232 (Messerschmitt GmbH plant in Regensburg), plus W.Nr.10333 and W.Nr.10335 (Erla Maschinenwerk GmbH from Leipzig). All of them were released in 1942 and previously fought in the JG54 squadron near Leningrad and Novgorod, were repeatedly repaired, and with the rearmament of JG54 on the Focke-Wulf Fw 190A, they went to JG5 beyond the Arctic Circle. The aircraft number 10333 was flown by the commander of the JG54, Hannes Trautloft.

Was this aircraft assembled from three different aircraft for the purposes of the display, or assembled from 3 different aircraft during the war and what we see here is the actual flying example?

This is a real aircraft that was used by the JG5. Three main parts were used for repairs during the war. From 14232 fuselage, from 10333 and 10335 wing consoles. All three cars, as I understand it, fought in JG54. Collected them in one plane there, at a repair plant or in JG5, I do not know. But in this form of Frankenstein, this plane flew in JG5. He has a Czech engine from Skoda. The plane was damaged and made an emergency landing on a frozen lake, not reaching a little to its airfield. After that, German technicians removed weapons and some other equipment from him. When the ice melted in the summer, the plane sank, burying its nose in the silt. After the restorers took out the plane, they cleaned out the corrosion centers with a laser and varnished the surface. The armament, propeller cap, tail wheel, one main wheel cover were purchased by Vadim Zadorozny Technical Museum.. They belonged to others Bf 109.
