Learning to fly fast...1/48 Messerschmitt Bf109G-14 KG(J)54(27)/6

Recommended Posts

My dad is still on a 109 run, just finshed the Graf 109K now he has already started a new one.

Gonna do a G-14 which was used in KG(J)54 for pilot training (KG(J)27 is possible too), maybe also for airfield security, later transferred to KG(J)6. Bomber pilots that converted to Me262 usually started training with old biplanes like He46, Go145..., then moved to 109s and the to the 262.

wrongly? designated as G-10, if it´s true a (partial) Werknummer is know which would be an Erla G-14 block

Just remember that the subject you want to do is a G-14/AS from Erla.  It has a different cowling arrangement than the one in the kit.  Actually that conversion is available from MDC.  The Erla G-14/AS features a flat plate in front of the cockpit on the left side. 

 

Unless I read that incorrectly and you are doing the bottom aircraft.

Sadly only one pic of this aircraft in destroyed form and there´s some discussion if it´s a G-14/AS or a G-14. My dad goes for the latter one. Right in front of the windscreen on the fuselage side you see a light grey quadrant. Usually G-6 and G-14 look that way when the bulge is removed by mechanics or because of a crash. That´s why my dad decided in the end to do a G-14 and not an AS.
