The options for the Tamiya kit are plentiful. What more could you ask for? Well how about opened panels, such as the 20mm Gondola gun pods? Having built up both the Eduard and the Tamiya Bf-109G-6s I think the open gun pods on the wings adds visual interest. When accompanied with the positionable cowling arrangement on the Tamiya kit these little gems will set your kit apart.
Packaged in a typical Brassin blister pack with the contents protected by foam and cardboard are twelve pieces of grey resin and one fret of photo etch. The instructions are on two small double sided pages with line drawings that show everything you need to do and the order that you need to do it in.
The set is actually easy to use. Easier than you would have thought. Removing the parts from the pour blocks is simple enough and fitting the parts to the model is simple a matter of aligning and gluing them in place.
The detail on the parts, both interior and exterior is superior to that of the Tamiya parts. The set allows you to pose one or two of the guns opened.
This set will also work on the Eduard or Zvezda Bf-109Gs as there is no cutting required for the set to be used.
Another great detail set from Eduard in their Brassin range. These gun pods are just what will set your Tamiya 109 model apart from the rest.
