Limited edition of
only 250 sets.
This latest release
Wings is a resin Conversion set for the Messerschmitt Bf-109V-13/V-14
Air racers and Record Setters and is designed for the Tamiya Bf-109E3 kit.
This decal sheet includes 3 different aircraft. These aircraft are from the 1937
Dubendorf Air Races and I first heard of them about 10 years ago and I've
been fascinated by the red aircraft ever since.
Included in this set is:
Separate chin piece for the
underside of the nose so you can fit the kit radiator and splinter
2 prop spinners depending on
which aircraft you build
Landing gear covers
2 resin panels with bulges for
the top side of the wings
Decal sheet with all the
markings you'll need

The quality of the resin is a bit on
the rough side and not the same quality you would expect from the big resin
manufacturers, so you really should get some very fine sand paper to sand the
resin parts a bit to polish them up before you paint them and a tiny bit of
filler will be needed as well. Nothing serious.
The 5 pages of instructions
include all you need to build any of these aircraft. This set is pretty
straight forward, but you either have to be patient or have a tiny bit of
experience cutting up kit and installing resin bits. This isn't rocket
science, but go slow and test fit everything to get it all perfect before you
haul out the CA glue.
This set will require a bit of
effort and work. You will have to cut off the kit nose and do some smaller
bits of cutting to make room for the resin parts in this set. You have a
choice of building 3 different aircraft, but the obvious choice is the Red Wine
colored Bf-109, but that is just the one I like....you may prefer building one of the other
The vac-u-formed canopy is a real
beauty with it's raised framing. The decal sheet is beautifully printed by
I'm quite excited to see someone
release this set.....these were very historic aircraft and were the show pieces
that lead to the production of the Bf-109E and the red one was flown by WW1 Ace
This set is limited to only 250
sets and considering it is only $25, this is definitely worth picking up if you
like the BF-109 or Luftwaffe aircraft.

fine resin detail items and decal sheets directly from Werner's
I would like to
providing me with this review sample.
