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.

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