Recommended Posts

Oh i am SO going to be ordering a few of these. Got two to build in conjunction with some AIMS decals.

Is this what has been erroneously called the "110 cowl?" If so, looks nicer than the OOP Cutting Edge conversion.

No Ray. The AS versions were never released in 1/32nd scale by anyone (plastic or resin). Up to now, the only way to get a G6 or G14 AS was a reasonably simple DIY conversion of the Hasegawa G10. The CE set you are referring to was intended (as a similar Eagle parts set) to convert Hasegawa kits into an Erla-produced G10. This last option lost most of its interest as soon as Revell released the Erla G10 in plastic.

Always wanted to build a G-14/AS, I'll need to crack my books but I think this cowl (which looks incredible BTW) should do fine.   Now to see if there are any interesting G-14/AS decals out there.

Fantastic news! Do you have any further plans for other Bf 109 sets (e.g. Mtt G-10 and WNF/Diana G-10...)? Any chance your Erla G-10 and Erla G-5/-6/-14 and Mtt/WNF G-6/-14 sets will be re-issued?

Thanks for the info, Thierry. There must be more variations in 109G's than any other aircraft of WWII, I can't keep them all straight!

Wow, that looks great! Will these be available in the US?

In the past they sold stuff through eBay. I have bought some items in the past and service was always great. So, yes, we should be able to get them in the US.

Hello colleagues!

 

There will be two versions of G-6/AS cowlings (differs by oil cooler gondola size), then G-14/AS fitted with unified G-10 lower cowling panel (large oil cooler and small "cheeks" on forward edge) and finally G-10 cowling version. All conversions intended for Revell Bf 109G-6 model, because it has convinient parts breakdown and almost all optional parts for 109G-serie, exept large wheels and fairings for them. That will give us good number of 109G additional variants. There are some questions through email regarding possibility of open engine compartment. We don't have plans to make such set in the nearest future. Other 32nd sets in a queue. MiG-21MF/SM correction on the way. The 109 sets price will be around 20 USD and they will be available for direct order by email and via Ebay.   Also we have plans to re-issue older 109 set but with some improvements.

 

Regards,

 

Alex.
