Bf-109G Control Surfaces
Packaged in the typical Brassin blister pack are seven pieces of perfect light grey resin and a single fret of photo etch.Instructions are included that show all the parts and how they are to be added.
The rudder, elevators, and ailerons with their mass weights are the resin pieces. The flight controls feature some stitching detail that is nicely done.
The modeler has to add the photo etch trim tabs to the control surfaces. Interestingly, the rudder and elevators have the trim tabs molded on so if you decide not to use the molded on trim tabs you have to remove them. The instructions are pretty straight-forward. The control surfaces are direct replacements for the kit parts.
If you want to articulate the surfaces, like I wanted to do, you will have to remove the molded on tabs and flush mount the control surfaces.
This set is designed for any of the Gustav series, but I have to be honest, I can’t tell a difference between this set and the one designed for the Friedrich.
The set is easy enough to use and features restrained detail on the surfaces. They will improve the look of the model.
