Just stumbled over this one on SBS-model website. They will be ready to send them out mid August! Great news for an 109aholic like me!

My impression of SBS products (resins) is that they are usually top rate stuff, so depending on the cost it might be appealing. Now, I might be mistaken, but I recall reading somewhere that Eduard has the Buchon on their 109 family tree future releases 🤔. If so it’s the Buchon for all tastes
Tom Cleaver said on July 24, 2019
Eduard has ALL the 109s on their list. The S.199 is likely first part of next year. Buchon probably later that year.

That is right Tom, eduard is still building on their GR8 109 series. However the SBS is with the Hispano HS-12Z-17 engine (Ha-1112 K.1L) The eduard sets are AFAIK for the merlin-powered version – the M.1L. They are clearly on my wish-list too.. 🙂

I really like the way the Hispano looks, just a little bit different than the normal 109. Have you thought about a paint scheme? Resin conversions can be really cool, but they can be a lot of work. I have a couple of conversions for the 109 from Alley Cat Models. Alley Cat has a bunch of conversion sets for the 109, but they are all in 1/32. How far down in the queue will this conversion be? Just a thought: at some point you need to gather all of your 109s together and take a group portrait and post it for us. :o)
George – the Hisso-engined version is the elegant one (that it did not work as well as the Merlin is another story). The paintscheme – well, I will have to buy more than one? The German is a moviestar version that is supposed to depict Marseilles 109 in a movie “Der stern von Africa” in 1956! yep – “109”‘s still flew in the 50’ies!
The Alley Cat conversions are great, but in 1/32, and I try to stick to 1/48. SBS has a M.1L under their “Attitude Aviation” banner, but sadly the designer quit working with SBS before a 1/48 could be made, and he had copyright it seems? (eduard to the rescue next year – see above)
Oh – and for the lineup – well, I have to finish something first 🙂
Tom Cleaver said on July 23, 2019
They’re also doing it in 1/32. And there are two different kits – the “Battle of Britain” modification and the original Spanish airplane (which will include the Oerlikon rockets and rails).
Paulo Castro said on July 24, 2019
What’s are the options on 1/72nd?
Special Hobby does make the 1/72 M.1L (Merlin-engined) in both Spanish AF and “Battle of Britain” boxing, but AFAIK noone has made the K.1L (Hisso-engined)
Greg Kittinger said on July 24, 2019
I like the look of that! Like Paulo, I’m in for a 1/72…!
Greg, Special hobby to the rescue; The “Buchon” is SH72308, and the “Battle of Britain” is SH72311. Both kits basically the same, but a new tree for the BoB-kit with new top-cowl, struts for the tail and new wings to make a correct version with clipped wings.

The kit arrived today – really nice as usual with SBS-model resin AM products
and some comparisons with a Bf109 F-4 “Yellow 14” that is in progress (check out “work in progress – aviation”) – could be a nice pair on the shelf
I ordered a few, and got them before expected launch date – 14/8!
They will be available from your usual supplier soon or from SBS-model direct in a week or so.

Even though eduard is mentioned above to issue a plastic-version of the s.199 in the beginning of 2020, nothing so far. I have started a build of the HA-1109 in “Work-in-progress – aviation” and still eagerly awaiting the s.199 and other 109’s from eduard. The HA-1109 is to be found here; https://imodeler.com/groups/work-in-progress-aircraft/forum/topic/bf-109-j-ha-1109-conversion-sbs-model-1-48/ Check it out if you are interested.
