The Bf 109 is a legendary name in aviation, an aircraft which combined longevity and versatility in the hands of the Luftwaffe and other air forces. The G-6 was the most prolifically produced Bf 109, accounting for more than a third of the total. Introduced in early 1943, it could be fitted with underwing 20mm cannons in pods, or synchronized 13mm machine guns in distinctive bulges ahead of the cockpit, and was powered by the Daimler-Benz DB605A liquid-cooled V12, which gave a top airspeed of 640km/h.
The latest addition to the 1/48 Aircraft Series depicts the Bf109 G-6, a mainstay of the Luftwaffe in the second half of WWII, fitted with dual 13mm MG131 machine guns that required the distinctive bulges on either side of the cockpit cowling known as "Beule." Thanks to in-depth study of an actual aircraft, the G-6 is depicted with stunning accuracy. Features a detailed depiction of the DB605 engine, with an ingenious method of switching in and out open and closed engine cowling components.Comes with 1 figure and 3 marking options.
