Barracuda Studios is Proud to Announce Four New Resin Sets for the Bf 109
Information supplied by Roy Sutherland
Barracuda Studios is proud to announce four new resin sets are now in production and ready for sale.
The four new sets are simple and easy to install upgrades for the very nice Revell Bf 109G-10 (Erla built.) This does not mean a G-10 with an Erla canopy. The Erla built G-10s had a totally unique cowling and oil cooler. Revell's kit is the first time this variant has ever been kitted by a mainstream manufacturer. All sets make a real improvement and/or correction to the base kit.
BR32123 Bf 109G-10 and K-4 Prop and Spinner
This set contains a new resin prop and spinner to replace the kit items in the Revell kit. Our resin spinner is more accurate in shape and detail. The misshapen kit blades are replaced with very accurate resin versions which will make a big improvement in the look of your finished model. Easy to install. Can be adapted to fit the Hasegawa and Trumpeter 109G-10 and K-4 kits.
BR32156 Bf 109G-10 Intake and Exhaust Set
This set contains a new seamless resin supercharger intake, separate hollow cooling scoops and accurate and detailed exhausts with recessed openings to replace the kit items in the Revell G-10. Filling the seams inside the intake is a tricky and time consuming process. We have saved you from having to tackle this less than thrilling task. This is a simple, easy to install upgrade that will make a big improvement in the look of your finished model. Can also be adapted for the Hasegawa and Trumpeter G-10 and K-4 kits.
BR32160 Bf 109G-10 and K-4 Oil Cooler Fairing
This set contains one detailed, accurately shaped resin oil cooler fairing and separate exit flap that replaces the kit fairing. It is too slab sided on Revell’s Bf 109G-10. Much study of photos was made in the preparation of this new set. A quick and easy drop fit replacement that will make your Erla G-10 even more accurate.
BR32169 Bf-109G Upperwings with Small Wheel Bulges
Resin inner upperwing sections with small wheel bulges to convert the Revell Bf 109G-10 wing (which only gives you the late wide tire bulge) for the many narrow wheel schemes. This section is also a correction for the G-6 kit, as the wheel bulges are molded incorrectly. The cross section of the bulge is reversed, with the high point of the bulge being inboard instead of outboard. This would prevent the tire from retracting into the gearbay. A fine distinction to be sure, but for 109 aficionados, we've done the hard work for you! A must have for many of the G-10 schemes on our two decal sheets.
These new Bf-109G-10 sets are the perfect compliment to our 2 amazing new Erla G-10 decal sheets.
We also have superbly accurate and detailed mainwheels for the 1/32nd Gustav in 5 styles!
As with all BarracudaCast products, the resin casting is to the highest standards. All parts are crisp, detailed and bubble free. We replace our molds before the parts quality starts degrading, so you will always get top quality castings. And, of course, we stand behind our products 100%.
Happy modelling! Roy
