There are some things that just look better in scale thinness. Eduard agrees and produces a set for their new Bf-109G-10.

This set is packaged in the standard Eduard resealable package. The contents are protected by some card stock. One fret of photo-etch is included in nickel plated brass. The parts that are very visible are the landing gear doors and flaps. Both of which will look better in brass than plastic. The one thing that I think is essential is the wheel wells shroud, which has the cutouts that are on the real plane, not like the kit parts which hints at the cutouts. There are some other things like a fuselage access hatch, strap for the drop tank and the landing gear plumbing.

All these items will add to the look of the finished model. The flaps alone will allow you to position them as you see fit which cannot be said of the kit ones. The folds of the flaps mechanism are complicated so care must be exercised to get them correct, but careful examination of the instructions will make that easier. That is the only 'difficult' part. The rest of the parts are easy to use.

You will benefit if you have a folding tool and a rolling tool, but they aren't required.

The addition of the wheel well insert, landing gear doors, and the positionable flaps make this set well worth the money. It is not for beginners but most modelers with a little bit of experience should be able to turn this set into the jewel it is on a great kit.

Highly recommended
