Product Description

Product Description

The Bf109 is one of the Luftwaffe's most famous World War II fighter aircraft. More than 33,000 Bf109's were built in many different versions. Both its climbing capability and acceleration in the dive were two of the Bf109s strong points. In production since the summer of 1942, the Bf109G series displayed some noticeable changes compared with the previous Bf109F version. The G-5/G-6 had a MK 151/20 mm cannon firing through the engine.

Two MG 131 machine guns were installed above the engine. The belt-feed to the uprated armament necessitated aerodynamic modifications to the engine cowling's which gave the aircraft its characteristic "bumps". The G-6 was used extensively on all fronts from March 1943 until the end of the war. Later production lots of the Bf109 G-6 were given fixed rear cab windows in a one-piece design which vastly improved visibility to the rear. During a further modification the tail was fitted with a rudder that was higher and had a larger area than previous models. With a total of 13000 units, the G-6 was the most widely produced of all Bf109's.

This is a beautifully engineered kit and as good if not better than many of the models offered by Tamiya but at a fraction of the price. The detail is astounding and the pieces fit together well. This is the beauty of a 1:32 rather than the smaller scales. My only criticism is to do with the instructions. The kit is made up of a couple of hundred individual pieces on about 17 frames. The pieces are scattered randomly on the frames so to find piece 73 you have to look all 17 frames in the instructions to find it! After a while this becomes very irritating and as at least one piece has been numbered wrongly can be very frustrating. If only Revell had put the frame Letter in front of the number it would have been so much easier. A73 would mean that part 73 would be on frame A. Simple. Come on Revell you have made a superlative model. Just sort out the instructions!

On the whole a well detailed model with panel lines engraved to just the right degree. Unlike some other Revell 1/32 offerings, there is no engine, no removable panels to reveal details and no pilot figure. The decals are abundant (I lost count at around 70 for the early version of the G6) and of good quality, however swastikas for the tail fin are not included and will need to be bought from a specialist supplier. Sadly, the instructions contain a number of mistakes and are unclear in other places. Two variants are offered: early and late versions of the G6 model. In some places there is a choice of two parts. Some show which part is for which version but others give you an option but no information about what the option relates to. Also, the order of of actions to be taken is not always the best so some care is needed.

Overall, for the experienced modeller this kit represents good value for money.

This is a well-engineered, re-tooled kit that offers the option to model early- (glasshouse canopy), and late-version (Erla canopy/ tall rudder/ tailwheel ) Bf109G-6s. The Erla JG5 (Norway) version has a quite attractive decal/ colour scheme; but there are many alternative 1/32nd scale decal sets out there online, from e.g., Hannants Ltd. Extensively detailed interior and overall looks the biz. Recommended.

A well-researched model and light years ahead of Revell's '109 of the same scale which dates from the late sixties/early seventies - but then one would expect 40 years worth of improved model production techniques to show. The '109 is one of the iconic aircraft of the twentieth century with a huge number of publications devoted to all its variants and finishes and Revell has made good use of this material. No model is perfect and if you really want to be nit-picking then minor faults can be found - but they really are minor and the kit represents very good value for money; in real terms this kit is actually cheaper than its 40 year old incarnation was in 1972! If you're going to make a proper job of it then there are weeks and weeks of spare time activity contained in its box. Speaking of the box, one real criticism - please Revell STOP USING THOSE HORRIBLE SIDE-OPENING BOXES - they are useless for storing completed sub assemblies and seem specially designed to damage anything being emptied out of them; a strong top-opening box would be so much better - otherwise a well-deserved 5 stars.

My SECOND bf109 G-10.... Very nice kit to work on. The amount of "aftermarket" bits & bobs that are available make it too much of a temptation not to take advantage of them; especially some of the different styles of 'weighted wheels'. I can think of lots worse reasons to buy two of a really nice model. This one is a pleasure to have on my bench.

Bought at the same time as my second G-10, is my FIRST G-6 in this scale from Revell. Wow. Two different styles of 'Erla' canopy plus one of the earlier 'framed' type. Two types of narrow wheels. Two types of gun-sight. Two types of drop-tank. An 'early' or 'late' tail... Lots of features that are shared with the G-10. The instuction sheet does hit you in the face with an awful lot of options that need thinking about before building commences.. Though I see it as a chance to research which particular aircraft you fancy. Different factories also had their own way of producing an aircraft ; yet another reason to do some hunting through books.... and then there's the colour scheme. There is a beautifully preserved G-6 in an Australian museum, still in its ORIGINAL paint.
If I had unlimited display space I swear Revell's range of bf109s could keep me occupied for a good few years... Luckily (?) I don't; so carefull choosing of subjects has to be the thing. With that... you can't go far wrong with either of these aircraft, be it for a week-end build or for something more expansive. The price alone is rediculously reasonable. Take your time and think it though... you won't be disappointed.

Yes, it has been too long opening new boxes for various described Revell 1/32nd 109Fs or Gs and finding the same old 1960s kit with the confused identity (though, it must be said, sometimes discovering a cut price Hasegawa moulding) and the most recent issue of the '109F' in the 'classic kit' guise finally put it where it belongs.

The new kit is immeasurably better in every respect, and is generally available cheaper than the last issue of the old F. No engine is included, but the 'after sales' accessories for this kit will soon include options. The old kit had a basic block and engine bearers - very impressive at the time - but now known to be inaccurate for any of the sub-types the kit was marketed as.
