The Tamiya Bf-109G-6 allows a lot of options. One option that isn't included is the WGr-21 Rocket system. The mortar rockets were mounted under the wings of the Bf-109, from the G-2 to the G-6.

This set is packaged in a typical blister pack with 16 light grey resin and one photo-etch fret. The resin is molded in light grey and dark grey not that it matters as both styles are beautifully done. The weld mark on the tubes is awesome.

The fret is made up mostly of templates to first set the angle of support struts and second to then set its location on the wing. The assembly of the set is pretty straightforward once you get the templates made up. You get two separate rockets for your diorama and two rockets to be 'installed' in the tubes. The photo-etch parts for the rocket tubes are mostly for the rear of the rockets.

The instructions are printed on small two pages with easy to follow instructions. The hardest part of the entire set will be the assembly of the template to set the angle of the support struts. The rest is easy.

If you want to make a drastic difference in the look of your Bf-109 just add these rocket pods under the wing. Who needs those wimpy 20mm gondolas? Not you if you have this set. This is the easiest way to get the 21cm rockets installed on your model.

Highly recommended
