Messerschmitt Bf-109G-6 in Detail

n by Martin Waligorski

Could IPMS Stockholms' web site do without a Bf-109 walkaround? Of course not, so here it is... I took the pictures at the National Air & Space Museum, Washington D.C. during my visit in Autumn 1996. The Bf-109 featured is an early series G-6 with framed canopy hood. Enjoy.

Cowling detail. Note the straight line of the cowling hinge and realtively deep panel lines

Cockpit hood with all its detail. Note plenty of cockpit interior detail with color-coded handles and prominent armored-glass cover behind the pilots' head. Other interesting things are: the antenna mast and wire fitting, and the oval blister on the port wing housing the enlarged undercarrriage tyres of the Gustav.
