Any source for Bf 109 block numbers?

Recommended Posts

HI everyone!

     Building an old kit with wheels that would have to make it a very early G6.  Don't have a W.Nr for it, and don't want to make one up that is too far from the truth.  Anybody know of a place with 109 types by block numbers, or something similar?

 

Thanks for your thoughts!

How are you going to camo?

This will decide the approximate Werk Nummer range, as the different early G-6 Manufacturers utilised dissimilar camouflage patterns.

Or if camo isn't important...

From: "Modeller's Data file #10, SAM publications 2007"

The last line in WNF section is actually Erla production.

Trautloft (then later Lutzov) flew a late WNF G-4 that was upgraded to G-6 standard, but kept the early wheels. This would be perfect considering the resemblance to the original box art... Eagle Cals has it as an option on one of their 1/32nd scale sheets.

(Edit: Sorry Gaz, hadn't realised that you've already decided a scheme.)

G-4 and G-6 Gustavs coincided within the WNF 19093-19999* Werknummern range. Several sources state "19456" for Trautloft's mount.

Thank you!!

Well...  that's something else to figure out.  The profile I'm using doesn't have anything camo-specific to either Erla or Regensburg about it.  And the earliest set of serials is for MTT.  And mine has to be from the earliest set of serials as only a few hundred were completed with the earlier style hub for the main wheels.

Got a good paint guide for the early MTT machines?

 

I'm gonna go look at the Marc Andre Haldimann site and see if I can find something useful.

Since it's not going to be the Trautloff/Luetzow G-6, please disregard my previous post.
