Revell Bf 109G-10 to Bf 109G-6/AS?


Recommended Posts

Not without a lot of work Erik...

 

Basically everything on the fuselage forward of the windscreen is subtly different on the Erla machines. The Hasegawa kit is a better starting point, but even this needs some hatches re-scribed and a different lower cowl without bulges for the G6/AS.

 

Perhaps Revell will favour us with their interpretation of this variant soon.

the Trumpy G-10 is out, and i have seen them for sale on ebay here

 

not seen a sniff of a review though, anywhere

 

i think the 1/43 scale masterpiece that is Eduard's 109 G-6 kind of wiped everything else off the map!

Remembering of course, that the Trumpeter G10 should have the same detail differences as the Hasegawa G10 kits, namely the lower cowl bumps for the later DB605D engine that was not yet in service at the introduction of the G6/AS.

Those bumps should be easy to remove, wouldnt they? But wouldn't the wing bulges be a problem? And if it's an Erla-built -G-10, the aft section of the left nose bulge?

 

I have been digging a bit...! ;)

The Trumpeter G10 kit would probably be an easier choice for removing the lower bumps, as the lower cowl is a separate piece. However, it seems to lack the small wing bulges from the limited sprue shots available. The Hasegawa G10 kit includes both wing bulges, and also both sets of propeller blades, depending on the particular airframe you're choosing to model.

 

More information on the cowling differences between variants can be found on this thread from TOCH Forum:
