Bf109 F4 early (high backrest) seat and seat belts question


Recommended Posts

Hi gents,

 

Does anyone know or have a reference photo of how the seat belts where attached on the early type (high backrest) seat on a Bf109 F4?

I have everything ready but just don't have a clue how to fit it correctly as the instructions don't show it.

The kit is Hasegawa 1/32 and the belts are Eduard.

 

Thanks in advance!

 

Best,

Nikola

For the lower ones, without other specific evidence, I would fix them as they were on the Emil seat:

Hi Thierry. Thanks for your reply. Appreciated.

 

Ah s&%t, now I am even more confused, haha.

The Hase seat doesn't have that extra part at the back to put the belts through. The just tell to bend the decals around the top.

These are some of the example 1/32 seats that I found:

The F-4 changed seat somewhere near the beginning of the series , it went from this (same as the F-2) ...

To this ... this looks like the front with the parts that went down the back exposed for illustration purposes ...

It looks to me like there were more than one design they tried in the F-4.

Thank you Mike! Much appreciated.

 

The first picture is what I especially needed.
