    Hi Guys,

    I am interested in purchasing this kit. Does anyone know of any reviews of this kit. What is the general opinion of it. Also, how does it compare to the 1/32 scale version which is out of production.

    David.

    IIRC, it is a fine kit with no fit problems. I seem to remember an umbrella set up provided for a diorama situation. The umbrella was used to keep the cockpit shaded while at readiness.

    Well the box art for a "Marseilles G-2" is utter b*llocks.

    Here's a comment on it from GR Morrisson.

    " -- it's a fabrication, based on the appearance of his last Bf 109F-4, WNr.8673. Marseille's fatal Bf 109G-2 WNr.14256 had not yet received markings -- the loss report clearly states "ohne Kennung" -- without a code number."

    Cheers

    Steve

    I have Hasegawa's G-6 and I'm very happy with it. Paul, are you thinking of the Hobbycraft kits? I know they have the umbrella but I'm not sure about the Hasegawa one having one.

    Steve,

    So his G-2 would not have had his kill markings or number 14? Didn't he shoot down like 7 planes in a G-2? What markings would these aircraft have if any?

    Dave.

    I would like to build the 1/32 scale F4 but it's next to impossible to find and it might be too big to display in my surroundings. Is there an excellent F4/trop in 1/48 scale and some Marseille decals that could be had??

    I think every 1/48 kit is in his markings or close to it. Overkill for me as I prefer obscure subjects.

    Probably. I am a bit fuzzy at times!

    The only evidence is one photograph, purporting to be the wreckage, which shows nothing and the loss report. The latter states clearly that no code had been applied.
    The stammkennzeichen, which I don't know anyway, should have been removed, otherwise the aircraft should have been as delivered..
    Cheers

    4 letter factory code issued at the production plant.

    Marseilles aircraft has been issued at least 3 times by Hasegawa in 1/48 scale and once by Revell, if you luck out I can provide some markings for one of his Yellow 14's

    Exactly. The four letter code was also the aircraft's radio call sign. The code stayed with the aircraft throughout its life and is sometimes found written or inscribed in other areas of the airframe or on items associated with that aircraft.

    Officially the markings were only carried for the duration of the ferry flight or flights and were to be "washed of immediately" upon the aircraft's arrival at its destination. This did not always happen, nor did units always report delivery of aircraft within the official three day window. Africa is a long way from Berlin :)

    Cheers

    Might be best to build the F4 version. Seems like that was Marseille's favoured version. There are a number of Hasegawa F4 kits in 1/48 scale for Marseille. Is there one that is recommended over the others? or they just re-releases of essentially the same kit. ie. same mold.

    I have the Zveda BF109F-2 and its suppose to be an excellent kit. I suspect their -F4 would be as good.

    I've built a couple of the Hasegawa 1/48 109 kits, it's not my normal scale.. They are good kits and go together well.

    The Zveda kit is generally accepted to be the most accurate of all. I haven't built one so I can't comment on building it. Personally a millimetre here or there doesn't bother me, so for me at least it's a moot point :)

    Cheers

    Build the Zveda one, pretty please. I have a 109 in my stash and would love to see one put together.

    No violence please....:D

    yes I have the F-2 and the F-4, i must say it/they are better than the hasegawa kits (still good though!), a few small issues but NICE! Have done a bit of construction on the F-2 and was rather impressed with it....shelved at the moment though...

    and yes I should get on with it...
