SET: UMI 1/32 Bf-109 v48 (butterfly tail) conversion set
KIT #: 3
PRICE: $20.00
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Resin, US Shipping included

This third conversion set is for the V tailed Bf-109 v48. This aircraft was one of the Bf-109G-0 preproduction aircraft so is basically as much a 109F-4 as it is a G. This set is designed for the Hasegawa 1/32 Bf-109G kit and I'd recommend the ProModeler boxing of the G-4 for this one as it will require the earlier wheels and the smooth upper cowling without the cannon breech clearance bumps.

The conversion itself is simplicity to the max. Simply clean up the tail section and then slot it in place as it replaces the kit tail. That is all there is to it.

A neat way of getting a pretty unusual model.
