Revell 1/32 Bf 109G-2/4 Tweak List

TWEAKS LIST VERSION 1.1 (publication date: October 2022)

Compiled by Thierry Laurent

The following list is intended to help modelers in improving scale accuracy of an airplane model replica. In no way is it intended to support or be offensive towards a scale model company. As such, it is only the result of a progressive process and is in no way intended to be absolute or even comprehensive. Hence, it is intended to focus on commonly admitted discrepancies and will probably not cover some errors. It is up to the modeler to decide whether correcting the listed issues is worth the time and money he will have to invest in the quest for accuracy process.

No aftermarket correction or detail set is mentioned in this document as the availability of such items may be very variable. Hence, refer to other LSP sections to find relevant information. Moreover, aftermarket sets do not necessarily correct all listed issues. Please refer accordingly to relevant documentation.


FUSELAGE (from front to rear)






According to the chosen Friedrich batch, other changes may be required such as the round shape of the MLG well perimeter, tail reinforcement strips, cowling details and so on. However, this goes far further than the scope of this list. Moreover, other changes will also need to be added for earlier Friedrich airframes: thinner propeller blades, smaller engine intake, shallower radiator, different oxygen regulator configuration, etc.

The list of references about the Messerschmitt 109 is an endless one. The list author focused on sources that are more oriented towards plane components rather than plane colors. Many excellent books have been printed about the later topic but this is out of the limited scope of such a list. As such, sources dedicated to Luftwaffe paints and camo, 109s colors or 109s used by Germany allies have not been listed here.

Accordingly, the following sources were used to build this list:
