1:24 Trumpeter Bf 109G-14

Recommended Posts

OK, my first new LSP model here for quite a while now, the Trumpeter 1:24 Bf 109G-6 (late version), graciously donated to me by our own Mark (dodgem37), thanks again, Mark, you're truly a good man. The ability to start from the beginning, and knowing that I already have some AM for the kit, has prompted me to throw caution to the wind and begin this, as one of my projected entries for the 2019 national convention, along with a few other choice selections.

No worries, thank you. I'll scan the Early Instructions and get it to you.

 

Sincerely,

Mark

 

Wow, too cool, Mark. I really want the instructions for the review that I'm currently writing on the kit, to do some comparisons between the early and late versions, as far as the kit itself is concerned.

OK, Mark came through for me, again, this time answering my request for an early canopy, so he sent me the entire tree of clear parts.

He also threw in (unbeknownst to me at the time of his notifying me) a set of 1:24 seat belts for my use here. Cool job, Mark, once again.

One of several head scratchers regarding the kit; 16 ejector pin marks on this one part! I recall that the K-4 part was identical, so now I get to eliminate them all, one more time.

And the process begins. Naturally enough, I won't bother with the one under the seat. Six more to eliminate, and then I can commence with some detailing here. (The one in front of the control stick opening, appears to be not filled, but it was deep enough that I just used superglue, then sanded smooth.)

You'd think they coulda arranged it on the sprue so that the side never to be seen would have got the marks.

 

I agree, sort of. Usually, the side with the most detail, would be the one that would be the most likely to tend to get stuck in the mold cavity, so it really does make sense to do it this way, I just don't think it should require 16 or 17 of them.
