  1. Alan Ho

    Tamiya proves once again why they are one of the best in model making.

  2. Neil

    This is my favorite BF109 kit in 1/48. Even better than Eduard.

  3. Mark R.

    I find that Tamiya make the best plastic models for quality, finish and fit. This is a good example although less detailed than some of their other kits.

    Tamiya hit a grand slam here. Yeah, it’s a bit pricy but worth every penny.
    To start with, the amazing box are depicts Eric Hartman’s “Yellow 1” and his wing man. also has depictions of optional aircraft on the sides.

    Once you open the box, this is what you will discover inside. Every parts tree is individually wrapped in it’s own plastic bag for protection. There are 4 gray plastic trees, and one clear tree. The decals are separate . The kit also comes with canopy masks.
    very well done instructions along with a large full color “poster” with the paint schemes, the clear parts are as close to perfect as one can hope for.
    Not the typical Tamiya decals with this Beast… There are markings for three separate aircraft with very nice color in register and seem to be quite thin (unlike older Tamiya kits). Another very cool option with this kit is that you can build both cowling open and closed and then switch them once built…..this is due to internally placed magnets.
    The blue plastic bag contains a small set of washers,magnets and Tamiya poly caps.
    You can also display your plane with a drop tank or not held in w polycaps.

    The engineering and research that went into this kit is second to none……

    El pedido ha llegado en la fecha prevista. El modelo tiene muchos detalles. Las piezas encajan a la perfección. La pena es que hay unos distintivos que deberían ir en la cola del avión y que por cuestiones legales no están incluidos. Habrá que buscarlos en otros paises donde no hay estas restricciones, tal y como he hecho otras veces.

    great detail but it looks too small with 1/48 scale,and I still keep it but I buy a 1/32 scale with other brand name.
    I will not buy any other fighter model at 1/48 scale ,it really too small. Tamiya is great

  7. Paul S

    Excellent model and great price

  8. Rich

    A very well engineered scale model with exquisite details.

  9. Gabriel Zvulun

    This item came well packaged and very quickly. The kit itself looks superb with impressive detail, good instruction and a nice full colour paint guide

  10. William Demartino

    Another fantastic model from Tamiya. Love everything about it. Problem was that Amazon delivered it without ANY additional packaging. That’s right, the model was sitting on the front stoop with no protection what-so-ever. What the hell, Amazon? Take some pride in your work. Models from other sites arrive with more care. Will use them in the future.

  11. Mike R

    This kit comes with pre cut masking for the canopies. Also allows for assembling the fuselage with out having the cockpit completed first. Very nice

  12. Richard Bovill

    Very high quality Tamiya model with high levels of detail

  13. Daniel Roberson

    Quality and craftsmanship. Tamiya is just awesome.
