Cutting Edge Modelworks has recently released
conversions to backdate Hasegawa's 1/32 scale Messerschmitt Bf 109 E to
an early Jumoschmitt - a Bf 109 A, B, C or D.
Hasegawa's kit cockpit is just awful, but even if
it were accurate it would differ from the early Bf 109 Jumo-powered
variants in some respects.
Cutting Edge has now released a dedicated cockpit
for these early variants. The complete replacement cockpit comprises 17
parts, perfectly cast in grey resin.
Cutting Edge offers the choice between
a conventional control column or the spade grip used on prototypes and
possibly the "A" variant.
The seat is beautifully presented with
a cushion and realistically draped harness straps all cast in place.
Several additional parts are also
supplied as a carryover from the Bf 109 E kit released earlier,
including the head armour which will be a handy addition to the spares
There is no detail cast onto the sidewalls of the
Hasegawa fuselage, so the parts should fit with a minimum of
Being a resin set, there will be some cutting and
cleaning up required, but this cockpit should be within the capabilities
of modellers who have previously worked with this medium.
Cutting Edge's 1/32 scale early Bf 109 cockpit will
be an essential companion to anybody contemplating their Bf 109 A/B/C/D
Highly Recommended to experienced modellers.
Thanks to Cutting
