Bf 109 f-4 / G-2 Wheel Well Differences?


Recommended Posts

Hey gang,

 

 I have the Pro Modeler/Hasegawa Bf 109 G-4, that I want to backdate to a F-4 using the Aries conversion set.

 

Would the RB Productions G-2 photo etch wheel well set be ok to use on the F4, or were they significantly different? 

 

Thanks, Greg

The wheel well openings on the G4 kit are already round, so thats handy. Would it be ok to add the RB Productions G2 photo etch set and call it good or is the difference in the detail far to great to represent the F model wells?

In other words, is it far fetched to think the RB Productions G2 set can be adapted?

 

Some F-4s did have the same wheel wells as the G, although it was rare.  Check for photos of the aircraft your going to model,  there is a possibility that it has the G style wells.
