    Hi everybody,
    while I'm still working on Macchi 200 and Spitfire Mk IX models, I'm already thinking to my next project, a BF 109 G-10 or G-14 in 1:32 scale starting from the Hasegawa kit.
    I also got the AIRES kit including the DB 605 engine and related items but here is where I need your help.
    The engine kit is for making a DB 605 A or B; besides the oil cooler that was different, see pictures below taken from here
    The 109 Lair- The Online Source for Messerschmitt 109 information

    do you know which other external differences existed between DB 605 A or B and DB 605 D or AS?
    I mean something that I should try to replicate in my model.
    Many thanks in advance.
    Cheers
    Alberto

    Hi,
    thanks to the courtesy of Ferdinando D'Amico I understood the differences I should consider in my conversion.
    The main are:
    - a bigger compressor and, therefore,
    - different left engine support

    does anybody have a good picture/drawing of these details?
    I would appreciate very much if he will share them with me.
    Many thanks in advance
    Alberto
