AZ Models 1/72 Messerschmitt Bf 109 G-0 “V-Tail”
Messerschmitt Bf-109 G-0 Werknummer 14003 was the third G-0 airframe produced at the Regensburg plant in October 1941. It received the V-tail modification and was evaluated by Messerschmitt’s flight test department in early January 1943.
The airframe had the standard camouflage of RLM-76/74/75 with the large mottling characteristic of the period. The modified tail cone was bare aluminum and the fins were reported to be a dark color such as RLM-66, -70, or even -22.
I reviewed this kit in detail on HyperScale back in June.
My V-Tail was built straight from the box with just the seat harness (Eduard) and a few extra tidily bits from the spares bin. It was a blast to build. The AZmodels series of 109’s are beautifully detailed models though they do have their quirks.
Being a limited production kit the build required some extra elbow grease but the results were worth it.
The new Mission Models primers, RLM paints, and clear coats were used throughout the build and they performed flawlessly.
Although this is not a kit for beginners, anyone with a little experience and a lot of patience will have no serious issues. The resulting model will be a conversation starter for sure.
