FirstLook

 

This 1/32 scale replacement spinner has been designed for Hasegawa's new Messerschmitt Bf 109G-6 by master pattern maker Gregg Cooper of ScaleQuest.

This is an accurate new spinner based on photographs and measurements:

  • The taper is corrected with a slight indentation where the front portion of the spinner is attached to the rear portion.

  • The blast tube has been enlarged and emphasised with a flared spinner opening (the blast tube can be shortened to match photo source of desired aircraft subject).

  • The openings for propeller blades are tapered to the rear.

  • A raised data plate for the spinner and backing plate with attachment hole has been added.

  • The forward spinner cap line is also more pronounced.

A drill jig is included to align the propeller shaft opening in the backing plate. A data plate decal is supplied with all EagleCals for Bf 109s in 1/32 scale

This is a simple but quite noticeable improvement over the Hasegawa kit part. The clever casting of the spinner, the backplate and the hub makes this a very straightforward project.

Recommended.
