  1. Hello! Here are a pair of Revell 1:72 Messerschmitt Bf 109G-10s which I finished two years ago. This kit turned out to be a disappointment. I had two boxings, one from the very first issue and one from later on. The first already had some flash and second was worse, both needing plenty of cleaning up. Fit of parts wasn't great either. Besides, the kit has some serious flaws. The modifications/additions I made on each kit were as follows: - The propeller was replaced by a Quickboost resin replacement part with the correct shape. - The kit comes with a short G-6-type tailwheel which is correct for early G-10s but not for both kits I was doing. Replaced by a Quickboost replacement long tailwheel. - The supercharger intake comes moulded solid and is somewhat oversized. Replaced by Quickboost replacement part. I had to make a new baseplate. - The head armour comes moulded solid. Made a new one with a partial clear section. - Added battery box to rear cockpit. - The dotted line on the engine covers are wrong and I used filler and paint to cover them - The big flaw is in the undercarriage bays. The kit has the wheel wells ending at the wing root when they should go further into the fuselage and this causes the undercarriage legs to be too far outboard. I managed to extend them. This required plenty of work which affected the wing root join. - I modified the wheel axles so that the wheels would be slanted outwards instead of sitting in the vertical position. When I first showed photos of these kits in G+, someone pointed out that I had missed the canvas covers of the insides of the wheel wells since I had left them in a metallic unpainted finish typical of late-war Bf 109s. Oh well, next time! Both kits were painted and varnished by brush. Firstly: 5/2105, ZNDH (Air Force of the Independent State of Croatia), Klagenfurt, Austria, 1945. Decals from a Blue Rider sheet. Of the two this is the one I am happiest about. The cockpit parts before assembly. The wheel wells. The top is the unmodified kit part and below my correction. Modified head armour. Added battery box. Quickboost supercharger intake with new baseplate. Secondly: White 4, II/JG7, Luftwaffe, northern Germany, at the end of 1944. This was one of the kit's options. Thanks for looking and, as always, all comments are welcome Miguel
  2. The Messerschmitt Bf-109G-10 differed from earlier versions of the 109 by the nature of its manufacturing, or rather, re-manufacturing. As aircraft came in to be rebuilt to the G-10 standard a number of differences did not seem to warrant upgrading, additionally the supply of the "right" equipment was unreliable. As a result some G-10 aircraft would have the DB605D and some the DB605AS; some had the MW50 power boost, some didn't, some were equipped the larger oil radiator and some were not. Large wheels, small wheels, wheel well wings bumps, maybe, maybe not, short tail wheel, long tailwheel, large tailfin, small tailfin...the list goes on and on. What that means for modelers is that a photo can be very helpful in figuring out which set of variations the G-10 being modeled had. Of course if there is no photo your build may not be correct BUT without a photo no one else can prove it is wrong either. Since I ended up with a couple of these kits I figured I should actually BUILD one. Started it tonight, put the teeny-tiny joystick and the tiny seat into the small cockpit floor. Magnifying glasses anyone? Greg in OK
