The Bf-109G was a versatile aircraft that could be fitted with numerous armament options. One of the most spectacular ones was the mounting of two wing mounted 21cm rockets.

Included in this vacuform package are 16 light grey resin parts that are perfectly formed and a fret of photo etch. Much of the photo etch pieces are allocated as alignment jigs. The resin pieces give you two complete rockets and two warheads. You only 'need' the warheads and the PE exhaust nozzles. The two complete rockets would be good additions to a diorama but aren't absolutely necessary for this set.

To start off this set you will need to assemble the alignment jig for the sway braces. It isn't anything too difficult and is actually well thought out. As is the alignment jig for the wing to indicate where to add the mount and drill the mounting holes. Once this is done the rest of the assembly is easy enough to do. The PE 'wiring' could be replaced with a bit of solder as the PE part is flat.

If you want to set your 109 apart from the rest this is a great set to do that with. Altogether this set is amazing in its simplicity and design. Another great job by Eduard. I'll definitely be using this set in the near future.

Highly Recommended
