Bf 109G control surfaces

So, here is two sets, one is for Bf 109G control surfaces and another one is for landing gear. Both are for 1/48 scale and both coming in transparent plastic case. Lets give few tips about first one. Set with stock code 648310 is dedicated to the control surfaces on Bf 109G. Not all, only those with standard low vertical tail (later was higher edition). Inside this pack is eight resin parts (all right, Brassin parts) and small etched set with ten etched parts (non painted and many doubled, just in case). They are intended to replace original parts in basic kit and part you will replace is vertical rudder (most decorated object on German fighters as well in most cases victories are marked there), horizontal tail controls and roll controls. Add to that three counterweights (you need two but one is just in case your tweezers make ‘click’ while you hold one of them) as well trim tabs you need for control surfaces (something from aerodynamics, need for stable flight).

How to apply? Cut, trim from resin mold and place into position. Very simply. Add to that etched trim tabs and this is it.

Bf 109G bronze landing gear set

Landing gear legs is another technology. There is in total four parts, two are resin and two are casted bronze. If you need strong leg, bronze is really great, I use it when ever I can. Cast is good (at least on my sample), no need for any adjustments on legs, like sanding and so on, just take care on position and this is it. It fit perfect into original slot for landing gear, it have a bit free space to adjust good position of leg. As well it come in landing gear bay color, different then camouflage, you can put it putting the build of kit and paint together with bay or at very end of build, as completed elements. It is on you. Set so simply and so good in same time. Yes, this set is stock code 648309.
