In the tradition of their earlier large-scale
releases, MDC's new 1/32 scale Messerschmitt Bf 109K-4 cockpit is a
multi-media upgrade that will deliver a vast improvement to the front
office of Hasegawa's kit.
MDC's Kurfurst cockpit comprises 20 parts
in grey coloured resin, a photo-etched fret with a choice of harness
construction methods, plus a small sheet of dial decals for the
instrument panel and a second decal sheet for specific Bf 109K cockpit
Resin parts are beautifully detailed and perfectly cast on my sample.
These parts demonstrate a high level of attention to detail, including
the specific Bf 109K features on the sidewalls and floor, but also
subtly present throughout the entire set. Examples include the cannon
breech cover with straps and raised lip moulded in place, and the
multi-part rudder pedal assemblies.
The dials on the instrument panel are flat circles,
ready for the application of the instrument decals. These will look
great under several coats of Future to represent the dial lenses.
The photo-etched fret contains a full harness
including straps in brass, but also offers the option to cut your own
harness straps from paper or lead foil and attach them to separate
buckles and attachment points. A template for the straps is part of the
photo etched fret.
Templates are also included for various filler
hatches - nice touch.
Instructions comprise a folded A4 sheet with photos
of construction accompanied by logical text. This sheet includes a
method to correct the centre belly section of the Hasegawa kit.
MDC's 1/32 scale Messerschmitt Bf 109K-4 cockpit will
deliver a big improvement over Hasegawa's kit parts. In this large
scale, the details will easily be visible through the open canopy.
Any modeller who has some experience working with resin
accessories should have no trouble assembling and installing this
