A little update about a previously announced new tooled Bf 109 G-6 on the way.
Tamiya has provided a little more information on the intended January 2018 release of a newly tooled Bf 109 G-6. The new kit will include a seated pilot and markings options for 9./JG54, 7./JG27 and 9./JG52. It is also stated to include a highly detailed engine, optional armor, and positional flaps and radiator opening.

117 - Messerschmitt Bf 109 G-6

Didnt expect this to happend, now that I have stashed up with multiple Eduards G-6. This will be the ultimate kit as always...

Hi Kevin Thanks for the update. It's good to see the box-art and step towards the final colour scheme options. But a January release? That makes one wonder if there's been a hiccup behind the scenes, because surely it would have been aimed at the Christmas market? As we've said before, it's not likely to be cheap (in the UK, at least) and, come January, the Christmas money is long spent and, if anything, people will be looking for bargains in the January sales. A new Tamiya Bf 109 will always sell well, but it doesn't seem like optimal timing from their point of view. All the best Rowan

I saw somewhere that the MSRP was around $50. here in the US.

Hi Troy That pretty much tallies with fears. I'm expecting around the 40.00 mark here in the UK (I'd be really surprised if it goes lower except on discount offers) - which is premium price for a mass-market kit of this size. And, as I say, to miss the Christmas market seems like a shot in the foot. After all, who wouldn't like to find a new-tool Tamiya Bf 109G under the tree with their name on it! All the best Rowan

Gary, I'm even going to buy at least one. And I'm looking forward to following a few of your builds here. Joel
