Bf109E-1 foot and hand grip on right fuselage?

Hi

 

I've had a look at some photos and it appears that there weren't either. Of course it is possible that the feature came in during the E-1, I don't really know, but all the images of E-1s below, linked to the fantastic Falcon's Messerschmitt Bf109 Hanger, show no foot or hand holds...

Here's a couple of E-3s which don't appear to have them either...

So, I'd say for the E-1, no hand or foot hold.  For the E-3 and E-4 a very non-representative sample says no. However, I would check this out more as I think many E-1s were re-built as E-3 or maybe even E-4, that could mean that the lack of holds are a carry over from the E-1 and new builds had them...

 

Hope that helps...
