Messerschmitt Bf109G-6, New from Tamiya in 1/48

Hyun Jin Kim of Defodel.com was in Tokyo for the 57th All Japan Model & Hobby Show on September 29th, 2017 and he has posted on Facebook some photos of Tamiya's new-tool 1:48 scale Messerschmitt Bf109G-6 'Gustav'. Competition is very strong now, as ever, so Tamiya chose to include a fully detailed engine with multiple choice upper & lower removable engine covers and many other details, reminding us some of their kits in 1/32 scale. The engine can be displayed with both parts of cowling open, but they can be removed and replaced by a single closed up version - even after assembly of the kit. Simple and innovative. It kind of becomes a two in one, as shown in photogallery & video below. Release date: 2018. Some photos are from the Tamiya Blog.
