Eduard continues its way through the development of the Bf-109. Their latest offering is the Bf-109G-10 produced at the Regensburg manufacturing facility, of which 130 were built. This particular variant comes with the small bulges on the wings but large asymmetrical gun cowlings with a long tail wheel.

Contents Description

The main landing gear is a single casting similar to the kit's plastic molded part, and the tail wheel is also included. I found a mold seam on the tail wheel and on one leg on the main gear. Both should be easily removed. Both parts appear to be a one-on-one replacement for the plastic kit parts. No fuss, no muss!

I decided to paint the metal parts just for fun and to see the detail once painted and weathered. I started with Alclad black micro filler primer, and allowed that to cure for a day. Next I applied a coat of Alclad dull aluminum. A pin wash of burnt umber oil paint was applied, followed by Testors chrome silver on the oleos. What a difference a coat of paint makes!

If you require a more sturdy landing gear for your new Tamiya Spitfire this is the set you should consider.

Conclusion

I wish to thank Sale Aircraft Conversionsand IPMS USA for the opportunity to review this set of metal landing gear.

Eduard releases a ProfiPACK of a new kit with all the bells and whistles and at the same time, they release an OVERTREE kit with no bells or whistles. An Overtree is for people like me who have a lot of decals and don’t mind not having the pre-painted fret or the masks. Now those things are available separately. Personally, I like the pre-painted photo etch and the masks and since I have a bunch of decals, including leftovers from the ProfiPACK, that I don’t mind. Even the box is devoid of anything that belies the beauty inside the plain white cardboard box. It just has an end sticker.
