Messerschmitt Bf109 G-6 Tamiya 1/72

The Messerschmitt 109 G-6 was the most numerous sub-type of the Luftwaffe’s basic front-line fighter. Equipped with Daimler-Benz DB 605 A-1 engine rated at 1574 hp, it was able to reach the speed of 640 kph at 6000 metres.

Its armament comprised twin MG 131 13 mm heavy machine guns and a single MG 151/20E 20 mm cannon firing through the propeller’s hollow shaft. The first Bf 109 G-6s were delivered to German fighter units in February and March 1943.

Following several modifications, the type served in the first line until mid-1944. Some of the aircraft were assigned to fighter pilot schools, including the so-called combat training units.

 

The Tamiya kit has a great fit but did not have too much surface detail, so I've added the rivets.
