FirstLook

 

Eduard’s 1/32 Brassin Werfer-Granate 21 (WGr.21) set is intended for Revell’s recent Bf 109 G-6 and G-10 kits, which in terms of stores include only an ETC 501 rack and drop tank.  Given the set’s drop-fit nature, however, it can probably also be used on Hasegawa’s and Trumpeter’s Gustav kits.

Parts breakdown is similar to that of the WGr.21 set Eduard has produced for its own 1/48 Bf 109 G kits.  Beautifully cast Brassin parts dominate, with the rocket tubes (complete with seam line) and full-length rockets particular standouts.  The latter are intended for use in diorama settings only, with separate rocket heads supplied for loading into the tubes.

The remaining resin parts are struts and braces for attaching the rocket tubes to the lower wing of your model.  Eduard helps here by supplying a photo-etched template to ensure you drill the strut mounting holes, and scribe a new panel line, in the correct locations.  The front and back struts are subtly different in length, so be careful not to accidentally mix them up.  You’ll also need to work gently as the struts and some rocket details are realistically thin and therefore fragile; Eduard’s excellent packaging notwithstanding there were a couple of minor breakages in the review sample.

 

 

In addition to the scribing template, the photo-etched fret contains a number of detailing parts for the rocket and tube.  These will be straightforward to use – none require folding – while adding additional complexity and interest to the finished model.

 

 

One minor omission is that (according to my reference photos) WGr.21-equipped aircraft were fitted with a small, supplementary control panel beneath the main instrument panel.  The panel is not included in this set and will need to be scratch built. 

Eduard’s fold out instruction sheet steps through construction clearly.  While there is no overall painting guide, some colour call outs are provided in the assembly steps.

 

 

Conclusion

 

This set is well produced and, with careful assembly, will add a further point of interest to your Revell (or Trumpeter or Hasegawa) Bf 109 G model. 

Highly Recommended.

Thanks to Eduard for the samples and images.
