The Messerschmitt Bf109 is one of the most famous fighters in history. More Bf109's (over 33000) were built than any other fighter and it shot down many more opponents than any other fighter in history.

The Bf109G was similar to the F but it introduced the DB605 inverted V-12 engine, which was more powerful than the earlier DB601, with more development potential. The main early versions were the G-2 and G-4, which has a 20mm cannon and 2 7.92mm machine guns in the nose. The G-5 and G-6 had the machine guns replaced by 13mm heavy machine guns, which needed bulges on top of the cowling to accomodate the larger breech blocks.
The G-10 featured an uprated DB605 engine with around 2000hp and a revised nose cowling, that didn't need the breech block bulges seen on the Bf109G-6/G-14. The uprated engine boosted performance, so that the aircraft could easily exceed 400mph, allowing it to compete with the fastest Allied fighters. As a result agility suffered and it was a far more difficult aircraft to handle, especially for a novice pilot.

This is AZ Model's excellent new tool Bf109G-10 kit. The kit is highly detailed with engraved panel lines and comes with markings for 3 different Luftwaffe aircraft.
