Eduard's new 1/48 scale
Messerschmitt Bf 109 K-4
by Brett Green
Here is my tenth build for 2023 - the brand new Eduard 1/48 scale Messerschmitt Bf 109 K-4 Limited Edition boxing.
Check out my detailed in-box review by following this link.
This is a great kit with impressive detail and flawless fit.
It is an all-new kit with many revised parts and redesigned assemblies.
I loved the look of the striking box art so I chose that option. Kit decals were used.
The model was built mostly from the box. Here are the exceptions:
Replaced kit rudder pedals with Eduard’s 3d printed resin PRINT Rudder Pedals, Item No. 648778.
Removed raised and recessed detail on pilot’s rear bulkhead. Cut new trapezoid hatch from Tamiya 0.2mm Pla Paper (thin plastic sheet).
DF loop bent from Tamiya bag staple.
FuG 25a IFF transponder antenna and pitot tube cut from light filament.
Hydraulic lines added to the main undercarriage legs.
.025” plastic rod was used to repair one of the drop tank mounts.
Drilled a hole in the top of each wing for undercarriage indicator rods. .020” plastic rod used for the indicators.
The top carrier film of the kit decals was removed.
I'll be writing this one up for a detailed article in Issue 220 of Model Airplane International magazine.
Thanks to Eduard for the sample
