Product Picture

The Bf-109G was a versatile aircraft that could be fitted with numerous armament options. One of the most spectacular ones was the mounting of two wing mounted 21cm rockets.

Included in this vacuform package are 16 light grey resin parts that are perfectly formed and a fret of photo etch. Much of the photo etch pieces are allocated as alignment jigs. The resin pieces give you two complete rockets and two warheads. You only ‘need’ the warheads and the PE exhaust nozzles. The two complete rockets would be good additions to a diorama but aren’t absolutely necessary for this set.

To start off this set you will need to assemble the alignment jig for the sway braces. It isn’t anything too difficult and is actually well thought out. As is the alignment jig for the wing to indicate where to add the mount and drill the mounting holes. Once this is done the rest of the assembly is easy enough to do. The PE ‘wiring’ could be replaced with a bit of solder as the PE part is flat.

If you want to set your 109 apart from the rest this is a great set to do that with. Altogether this set is amazing in its simplicity and design. Another great job by Eduard. I’ll definitely be using this set in the near future.

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!
