NOTES: Resin detail parts for Trumpeter 1/24 Bf-109G-6

A new name on the scene (at least for me) is Contact-Résine. They have sent in a number of items that certainly belie the feeling that the French cannot do a good job of casting. In fact, the casting on these parts is outstanding. I doubt if you will find any that are better. I found no casting glitches what so ever on either of these sets.

Set 24007 are Bf-109G-6 wheels and 24008 is a new set of prop blades and a spinner. These parts are designed for the Trumpeter 1/24 Bf-109G-6 and are direct replacement for the kit parts. The wheels are 'weighted' and so cast that there is but a tiny casting block. This item is on the bottom of the wheels so removal will cause minimum visual damage. They are certainly a huge improvement over the vinyl offerings of the kit. The prop blades/spinner set is equally as well done with the blades simply slotting into the spinner once the short casting stub is removed. Having the blades separate like this makes it much easier to paint and detail the spinner.

In all, two superb resin replacement sets. If unavailable locally, you can get them direct from the link below.

Thanks to Design & Marketing Int'l for the review set.
