The Morane-Saulnier M.S.406 was a French fighter aircraft developed and used primarily before and during the early stages of World War II. As one of the first modern fighter aircraft of the French Air Force, it played a significant role in the early air battles of the war. The M.S.406 was a low-wing monoplane, equipped with a single engine and characterized by its fixed undercarriage and enclosed cockpit.

Though outclassed by later fighter designs, the M.S.406 was a symbol of French resistance in the air and saw service not only in France but also in other countries, including Finland, where it gained a reputation for resilience. Key features included its maneuverability and the then-innovative use of duralumin in its construction. The aircraft's historical significance in the early air battles of WWII and its iconic status in French aviation history make it a subject of great interest to aviation enthusiasts and model collectors, especially those with an affinity for early WWII fighter aircraft.
