The Tamiya Bf-109G-6 is a phenomenal kit. That said it could use a little upgrading here and there. One of those things is with the guns on the closed cowling option. The kit guns are okay but they lack some detail. The kit ones lack detail due to the limitations of injection plastic.
Eduard has made some beautifully flawless light grey resin replacement ones. Packaged in the normal blister pack packaging are two gun barrels. The instruction sheet is a small double sided sheet that explains what has to be done. Simple and easy. These two resin pieces have the appropriate cooling vents over the barrel and the proper shape to the muzzle and flash suppressor. They are small.
These are near drop in replacements for the kit parts. You will need to cut off the mold plug at the end and drill the flash suppressor out slightly.
I haven’t checked these out in my Eduard kits but I suspect that they will fit the Eduard kits as well.
A simple and easy upgrade to the Tamiya kit (and potentially the Eduard one) at a relatively low price. The look great and will show up on your CLOSED cowling option nicely.
