I am not aware of any aftermarket 1/24 scale trop filters for the Bf 109 E.

 

The trop filters significantly degraded performance and were frequently removed when not necessary.  This is perhaps most evident with the F and G series machines.

 

However when operating in an environment like North Africa it is improbable that they would be removed because of the substantial risk of serious engine damage.
