The Bf-109F had three different types of seats throughout its development. One being the early style similar to the style of seat in the Emil but completely different. It was more representative of the style of seat used in the Bf-110. Then the seat moved towards what we are familiar with but with a different backplate. This was short lived and the familiar backplate that would be in the Gustav was the final version.

With the release of the Bf-109F-2 from Eduard, they have added this early style of seat. Some of the most famous aircraft, such as Galland and Molders, have the early style of seat.

In their Brassin series, Eduard offers up this new seat. Inside of a plastic blister pack that is typical of the Brassin range, Eduard offers up one resin seat and a small pre-painted photo etch fret with the seatbelts and shoulder harnesses. The set is simple as removing the seat from the pour block, paint it and weather it. Done. Ready to add to the cockpit after adding the seatbelts. They take to bending easily and attach with a little bit of superglue. Then just add it to the cockpit flooring without any modifications.

Unique, simple and effective upgrade for your Friedrich. It really changes the look of the cockpit. If your model needs this style of seat I can't say enough good things about it.

Highly recommended
