Barracuda Studios | BR32158: 1/32 Scale Bf 109G-6 Upper Gun Cowling (Erla)
Reviewed by Kevin Futter
Barracuda Studios continues to expand its BarracudaCast range of resin upgrade and detail sets with a new replacement upper gun cowling to allow the Revell 1/32 scale Bf 109G-6 kit to be completed as an Erla-built airframe. Quoting from the set's packaging:
Detailed, accurate cowling corrects the spacing of the machine gun troughs on Revell's Bf 109G-6 kit part. For Erla built Gustavs only.
Note that set BR32157 provides a similar replacement part for non-Erla-built machines.
While this is a simple one-piece replacement for the Revell kit part, some minor modifications are still required to the forward upper fuselage in order to make it fit.
A small folded sheet of instructions is included, comprising descriptive text, photos, and diagrams. They tell you all you need to know to get the most out of this simple upgrade set.
This set is a no-brainer for someone looking to build an accurate 1/32 scale Erla-built Bf 109G-6 from the Revell kit. As long as the provided instructions are carefully followed, any modeller with a modicum of experience should have no trouble improving their build with it.
Thanks to Barracuda Studios for the review sample.
