Bf 109 F
Development of the new Bf 109 F airframe had begun in 1939. After February 1940, an improved engine, the Daimler-Benz DB 601E, was developed for use with the Bf 109. The engineers at the Messerschmitt facilities took two Bf 109 E-1 airframes and installed this new powerplant. The first two prototypes, V21 (Werknummer (Works number) or W.Nr 5602) and V22 (W.Nr 1800) kept the trapeziform wing shape from the E-1, but the span was reduced by 61 cm (2 ft) by "clipping" the tips. Otherwise the wings incorporated the cooling system modifications described below. V22 also became the testbed for the pre-production DB 601E. The smaller wings had a detrimental effect on the handling so V23, Stammkennzeichen (factory Code) CE+BP, W.Nr 5603, was fitted with new, semi-elliptical wingtips, becoming the standard wing planform for all future Bf 109 combat versions. The fourth prototype, V24 VK+AB, W.Nr 5604, flew with the clipped wings but featured a modified, "elbow"-shaped supercharger air-intake, which was eventually adopted for production, and a deeper oil cooler bath beneath the cowling.On all of these prototypes, the fuselage was cleaned up and the engine cowling modified to improve aerodynamics.

Bf 109 G
The Bf 109 G-series was developed from the largely identical F-series airframe, although there were detail differences. Modifications included a reinforced wing structure, an internal bullet-proof windscreen, the use of heavier, welded framing for the cockpit transparencies, and additional light-alloy armour for the fuel tank. It was originally intended that the wheel wells would incorporate small doors to cover the outer portion of the wheels when retracted. To incorporate these the outer wheel bays were squared off. Two small inlet scoops for additional cooling of the spark plugs were added on both sides of the forward engine cowlings. A less obvious difference was the omission of the boundary layer bypass outlets, which had been a feature of the F-series, on the upper radiator flaps.

Eduard continues to release upgrade sets in their BRASSIN series to enhance the look of their newly tooled  bf 109 ‘s .That includes these two new sets that offer  the control surfaces for both  bf 109F and G variants. Packaged inside of the traditional blister pack with foam protection ,each set is consisted of 8 pieces in grey resin and a small 10 pieces  p.e. fret .

So we have two ailerons ,two elevators one ruder, three  mass weights( one is extra just in case you loose one) . All of the pieces are casted perfectly without any air bubbles. The removal of the  casting blocks is very easy with minimal cleaning of the pieces. Surface detail includes  the stitching on the fabric portions.The p.e parts are for replacing, if you wish to, the already casted on trim tabs.

On the following photos you can compare the kits pats with the resin ones.

And some reference photos of the real thing  (in this case Bf 109G-2  ‘’BLACK 6” )

Also these two sets, like in the case with the BRASSIN landing gear  for the Bf 109F and G, are identical under a different package name.So whatever you choose can be used in every newly tooled 1/48 Bf 109 by Eduard.

So here we have another winner by Eduard. These resin control surfaces for their new Bf 109F and G series , offer  great detailed parts  with more realistic fabric stitching and  thinner trim tabs which will enhance for sure the appearance of your new Bf 109.
Highly recommended!!
