Hasegawa's 1/48 scale Messerschmitt Bf 109G/K models are excellent, but not quite perfect. There are a few questions about missing inches from the nose. The shape of the VDM9 propeller blades on the K-4 and G-10 is also suspect.
Ultracast have solved one of these problems with their "Bf 109 Wide Blade Propeller" set. This simple correction set comprises four VDM9-12159A blades as fitted to DB 605/AS and DB 605D 109s. It is therefore suitable for Hasegawa's Bf 109G-10 and K-4 kits. Naturally, you will only be using three blades on your model - one is a spare.
Casting is clean and each blade is admirably straight on my sample. Locating pins are in place to ensure that the new blades will be a perfectly aligned replacement for the kit items.
This is a simple and effective correction set from Ultracast.

Thanks to Kevin at Ultracast for the review samples.
