  1. This weekend at the E-Days 2013 the box art picture from the Eduard's future 1/48th Messerschmitt Bf.109 G-6 kit. Source: http://www.master194.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=78075. V.P.
  2. Avia S-199 Bubble Canopy ProfiPACK (70151) 1:72 Eduard There must have been billions of words written on the Bf.109 over the years, which was the mainstay of the Luftwaffe's fighter arm, despite having been supposedly superseded by the Fw.190 and others during its service life. The G or Gustav as it was known was one of the later variants, and is widely regarded as one of the best, with improved armament that necessitate a distinctive pair of blisters in front of the windscreen to accommodate the breeches of the new weapons, plus mounting points for the 210mm rocket tubes used to disrupt the bomber streams in long range attacks using timed detonation. Post war the Avia factory, who had been making Bf.109s for the Germans, continued manufacturing them from parts and plans that they had to hand, designating the originals S-99. The later S-199 using Junkers Jumo 211F engines and props that were previously fitted to the He.111 due to a lack of original DB605 engines, with a pair of MG151 cannons fitted in pods under the wings to make up for the lack of coaxial cannon that was lost through the engine change. The twin cowling machine guns were troubled by unreliable synchronisation gear that could result in a perforated or missing props if it failed at the wrong moment. Over 500 were made in total, and a small number found their way to the nascent Israeli Air Force, where it was less-than successful and was withdrawn from service relatively quickly. In Czech service they were retained through most of the 50s, the last flight taking place in 1957. The Kit This is a new boxing of a 2022 tooling of this postscript to the Bf.109’s story, depicting the last hurrah of the type before it retired to the annals of history. The kit arrives in a well-appointed ProfiPACK styled top-opening box, and inside are three sprues in blue-grey styrene, a clear sprue, a fret of Photo-Etch (PE) brass that is nickel-plated and pre-painted, a sheet of pre-cut kabuki-style masking material (not pictured), two decal sheets, and the usual glossy instruction booklet with spot colour throughout and colour profiles on the rear pages to help with painting and decaling. If you have seen Eduard’s 1:48 109s, the details and parts breakdown will be familiar, with plenty of engraved panel lines and rivets to be seen, plus well-detailed cockpit and gear bays out of the box. Construction begins predictably with the cockpit, which is based around an L-shaped floor onto which the two seat parts, painted PE seatbelts, PE rudder pedals, control column, instrument panel support and the panel itself, which gives you a choice between a styrene panel with raised detail, or a flat styrene backing that you add the laminated PE parts to, adding extra realism at this small scale. The fuselage halves are prepared with sidewall details in styrene and PE, some replacing less detailed aspects of the styrene moulding. The fuselage is closed up around the tail-wheel, and once the glue is dry the cockpit is slipped in from below, then attention shifts to the wings. The lower wings are full-span except for the tips, which are moulded into the uppers for finesse. The main gear bay sidewalls are inserted into the lower along with a pair of barrels, and at this stage you should consider whether you want to drill two holes under each wing, depending on which markings option you have chosen. The upper wings are glued in place, and you are advised to bend the wings slightly to get a snug fit between the two assemblies, or leave one upper wing off until the wings have been glued in place. A bulkhead behind the pilot’s head is added at this stage along with a decal that depends on which option you have chosen. The elevators fins are each two halves, and the flying surfaces are a single part each, with ribbing detail moulded in, and giving you the option of posing them deflected, as does the rudder, to which you add either a styrene or PE actuator. The wings have separate leading-edge slats, ailerons and flaps, and a pair of wingtip lights in clear styrene to finish them off, taking care not to snap off the pitot probe that is moulded into the port wingtip. The cowling is missing some important aspects at this point, with the twin nose gun troughs fitted to the top with a long piano-style hinge projecting aft past the end of the part. The twin ‘Beule’ cannon breech blisters in front of the windscreen are separate inserts, and you have a choice of two styles, plus an air-intake horn on the starboard cowling. Two barrel tips are slotted into the rear of the troughs, and the pilot is protected by a piece of head armour fixed to the bulkhead behind his seat and braced against the rear of the cockpit. The lower cowling is closed over by adding a U-shaped section, and while you have the model inverted, the PE radiator surfaces are glued in place and the housings fixed over them once everything is painted, flexing the cooling flaps at the rear downwards along the weakened line if you have dropped the flaps. The narrow track landing gear of the 109 was carried over to the S-199, and coupled with the torque from the wide blades of the new prop, it made for an even trickier proposition to take-off and land. The struts have moulded-in scissor-links, a PE tie-down lug and brake hose, plus a captive bay door in styrene, finished off with a four-part wheel at the end of each leg. Masks for the wheels are included on the kabuki tape sheet, which should allow you to cut a clean demarcation with little effort. The legs are glued into the bays on a long tab for strength, the choice of two styles of drop-tanks are fixed on a four-pronged pylon, and an underwing antenna is inserted into a clear styrene isolator patch. A pair of PE recognition lights are glued to the underside of the rear fuselage, sanding off the raised circle if they are closed over, with scrap diagrams showing the correct location of these and the correct angles that the landing gear should sit at once complete. For one markings option a pair of small holes under the wings just outboard of the main gear bays are filled for accuracy. Before fitting the canopy, the clear gunsight is painted up and fixed to the front of the instrument panel, then a traditional angular windscreen with a PE roll-over hoop is fixed into the front of the cockpit, and the blown canopy with another PE hoop is able to be modelled closed or slid back on a pair of rails up to the short antenna that is just in front of the D/F loop, which can be made from styrene or plastic. The masking sheet includes masks for the canopy frames, with the highly curved centre sections covered with liquid mask or tape at your discretion. A useful hand-crank starter-handle is supplied for the engine, and Eduard’s designers have even thought about the clumsy modeller (a.k.a. me), supplying a spare pitot probe on the C sprue in case you can’t help knocking it off. Before installing the prop, the exhaust stubs are slipped into the slots in the cowling sides, then the prop, which has all the blades moulded as one, has the spinner fixed to the front and rear, then applied to the nose, which is when you realise that those blades really are broad. The gluey bits aren’t finished quite yet however. Three markings options have a pair of small blisters fitted outboard of the main gear bays, using the two holes that are otherwise filled in. Two more decal options have the MG151 cannons in gondolas, and each of these are made from three parts, and use the same two holes to locate them. Markings There are a generous six options available from the kit decals, all of which are in Czech schemes, with some variation in colour to appeal to as wide an audience as is reasonably possible. From the box you can build one of the following: 389, por. Jaroslav Plecitý, 3rd Sqn., 18 Fighter Regiment, Pilsen-Bory, Aug 1952 253, rtn. Jiljí Horák, Air Regiment No.5, Plzeň-Bory, Feb 1950 182, vrch. Stržm. Josef Sobota, Police Air Patrol, Praha-Ruzyně, Dec 1949 183, 1 Air Training Regiment, Olomouc, 1953 334, ak. Milan Pohlodek, Air Military Academy, Hradec Králové, Mar 1950 235, por. Jan Šurák, 2nd Sqn., 8 Fighter Air Regiment, Klecany, May 1951 The decals are printed by Eduard and are in good registration, sharpness and colour density, with a thin gloss carrier film cut close to the printed areas. The stencils are on a separate sheet, and are marked on a page of the booklet, separate from the rest of the markings to avoid confusion from trying to read overly busy diagrams. Don’t forget that as of 2021, the carrier film from Eduard decals can be coaxed away from the printed part of the decal after they have been applied, effectively rendering them carrier-free, making the decals much thinner and more realistic, and obviating the need to apply successive coats of clear varnish to hide the edges of the film. It’s a great step further in realism from my point of view. Conclusion Another great small-scale Bf.109 derivative from Eduard in their usual style, with tons of detail, a variety of decal options, and some big guns that go bang. Highly recommended.
