This is my first Eduard. I like the kit in general, but I dislike the idea to fix the prop unlike the Tamiya poly cap or Revell stick rod method. Detachable/rotatable prop is good for transportation purpose.

I wish Tamiya make Bf 109G variant, but as you know Tamiya seems to be not interested to make variant.

Agreeable. Perhaps next time try masking the canopy. Seems a bit ruff in the pictures.

Nice representation of that 1946 scheme, Finland only 1x 109G-6/AS. I don't know why but maybe they picked it up by mistake from german plane delivery park : )

I fix my props with a tiny drop of water based wood glue, if you need to pack the plane or bump the prop it easily unsticks without breaking blades.

I free hand paint my canopies as I can't stand masking, with practice and a cotton bud to wipe mistakes it works OK.

The Tamiya 109G-6 is a very complex build and has few optional parts and most expensive. The Hasegawa has good outline but is very simplified, and the Zvezda is tricky to build around front engine and has alot of parts. The other makes have even more problems, but the Academy is OK is want to scratch build the missing details.

The Eduard 109G is my preferred in 1:48 it has the most optional parts for different versions and enough important detail, and weekend kits are great price.
