Will there be a 3 Blade prop option I wonder?

Good point, I have never seen a 4-blade prop on a Bf-109K?

Excellent news. The 'K', my favourite Bf 109 variant.

Bf109K-14. Two were delivered, so of course it needs a model.

Two indeed? Well, there will be someone out there who needs that.

(I would have much more appreciated a Bf-109 G10 Erla.)

Hooray!

I've been waiting long time for this release, decal options are well chosen.

Will get myself a couple of them.

Looking forward to more upcoming marking variants!

I wonder if they will be making Bf-109 G10 Erla version as well?

This would complete the range of 109's, and would make one modeler very happy.

All quiet on the 109K front?

 

I got one of these recently as I'm generally a fan of the AZ 109 range despite their flaws. My only slight disappointment so far is that the fuselage halves seem to share a basic overall shape with the ones from the 109G-10.

 

Of course the panel lines are in the right place for a K but the G-10 kits have issues with cockpit fit and the nose shape doesn't look 100% right to me. I hope at least cockpit fit is fixed on this K kit, I need to spend a bit more time investigating what needs to be done with the nose.

I have one of these kits in hand, and my overall impression is very positive. I can vouch that the problems with fuselage depth and cockpit fit in AZ’s G-10/G-6AS series, are 100% fixed. 

 

The nose shape looks identical to the G-10, but the surface detail is much crisper. The molded-in cockpit side detail correctly represents the K, but the cockpit floor/rear bulkhead is the same piece as in other AZ 109’s, so the purist will want to correct the floor boards etc.

 

The kit contains a complete set of AZ’s older G-6/14 sprues, with an additional sprue unique to the K. Thus you get all the props and other detail parts seen in those earlier 109’s; quite the surfeit of useful leftovers, including a full extra fuselage!. The parts on the K sprue are generally those shown in the first post here, including the 4-blade prop and wing-mounted cannon enabling one of the obscure late prototype versions to be done.

 

I agree with Roman, if AZ eventually concocts an Erla G-10 of this quality I will be thrilled!

Hmm, K-14 Aces marking, is it real, or what if?

What if, the four bladed K-14 never saw action.

So nice to finally see these types as 1/72 scale kits.  Long overdue and a must for any Luftwaffe collection.
