This set is the first set that I can remember that allowed the modeler to pose the bulkhead behind the pilot in the open position. This will definitely set your Bf-109 apart from the rest. The one thing that comes to mind immediately is adding this set to make a Galland like opening with the lobsters and champagne. Yes I know that was an F model but you get the idea.

Molded in light grey resin with the minimal resin flash, there are three parts for this set. There are four parts on the two pour blocks but you only need the three. The big piece is a one piece affair that will slide nicely into your kit. You will have to remove the pour block on this piece but after that it is already done for you. The bulkhead is a direct replacement for the kit part, but this piece is opened so you can see into the storage area. The access door has detail on both sides, a very nice touch.

Just add a little bit of paint after cleanup and you are ready to show this area open. This makes a very unique set. I’ll definitely be using it on my next Eduard Bf-109. Yes there will be more.

Highly recommended

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!
