Late War Bf-109G-10 in 1/48 Scale
This is Eduard’s ProfiPack series Messerschmitt Bf-109G-10 as built by the Wiener Neustädter Flugzeugwerke (WNF) factory with the enlarged wooden tail. My example has been finished as a very late war JG/51 aircraft ‘Rosemarie’ which was roughly repainted in the field after being transferred from JG/52 when the latter was disbanded near the end of the war. As such, it is reasonably representative of Luftwaffe 109s in the Spring of 1945 as the war in Europe ground to its bloody end.
The kit is a good one generally speaking, continuing in Eduard’s tradition of making superb 109s in 1/48 scale. Unusually, however, the decals were a complete nightmare in this kit – being both fragile due to very thin printing and also exceptionally sticky, meaning that they constantly tried to fold on themselves, tear and stick before I could position them right. All in all, not 100% happy with this build but hope you like it despite imperfections.
