Product Picture

The Eduard Bf-109G-6 and G-5 are beautiful kits. One of the complaints or discussions on the kit is that the exhausts have to be added early in the build and then have to be masked.

This Brassin set addresses this. Included in this clear vacuformed package are four pieces of light grey resin that are perfectly formed. There is additional detail included on the resin, namely the spark plug wires. The exhausts are hollowed out nicely. Also included in the packaging is a fret of nickel plated photo etch.

Adding the parts is easy enough. You just have to add the inserts with the opening in the front before you close up the fuselage halves. Then you can add the exhausts and photo etch deflectors at any time. I added mine at the end of my build. Care must be taken when adding the exhausts. They fit tight so you have to be careful not to break off the aft stack like I did on my one. They fit so tight that they do not need glue. The deflectors fit perfectly once you bend the right upper one. Everything else fits perfectly.

They look really good. I’m pretty happy with the results and will use them again. The additional detail is nice but the thing that is really nice is the ability to add the exhausts later in the build.

Highly recommended

Thanks to Eduard and IPMS/USA for the review copy. You can obtain your example direct from Eduard at https://www.eduard.com or your local hobby shop or online retailer.

Reviewer Bio

Floyd S. Werner Jr.

Building models since the age of 7, I’ve become known for my Bf-109s and helicopters. I currently run Werner’s Wings. I was previously the ‘star’ of the Master Class Model Building Video series. I’ve been published numerous times on various website, including Hyperscale and ARC. My work has been in FSM and Great Scale Modeling 2001, as well as, numerous other model magazines. I’m a published author with my Squadron/Signal Walkaround book on the Kiowa Warrior. My models have continuously won many regional and national awards. My unique model photography gives my models instant recognition for their historical perspective.

I’m a retired from the Army after 21 years of flying Cobras and Kiowa Warriors, including tours in Iraq, Bosnia, Korea, and Germany. I’m also a retired Flight Officer for the Baltimore City Police and flew their helicopters chasing bad guys. I’m currently flying Cobras and Hueys with the Army Aviation Heritage Foundation.

I’ve been married to my high school sweetheart, Yvonne, for 42 years. Our daughters have blessed us with six grandchildren. My passions continue to be his family, friends, helicopters, models and airplanes, especially the Bf-109 and my beloved AH-1 Cobra. My motto has always been - MODELING IS FUN!
