The HA-1112-M1L is a Spanish development of the Bf-109, fitted with Rolls Royce Merlin engines due to lack of DB-605s, and the unserviceability of the Hispano Suiza units originally used. Fitting the Merlins led to the aircraft receiving the nickname Buchon, meaning fat pigeon, as the lower cowling resembled the breast of a pigeon.

Three examples were used to represent Messerschmitt Bf-109s for Piece of Cake; Nick Grace's G-BOML, the Charles Church Spitfires-owned G-HUNN and Hans Dittes D-FEHD from Germany. All were sprayed in a similar colour scheme to those used in the 1968 'Battle of Britain' film.
