AMG’s 1/48 Messerschmitt Bf.109A by Jay Blakemore
THE KIT – FIRST
espite being unacquainted
with Arsenal Model Group
(AMG), it transpires that
they have been producing models
in one form or another since 2008.
A visit to their website furnished
me with little further information,
other than that they are based
in the Ukraine, and have a small
but growing range of products.
This includes an eclectic mix
of resin figures, limited-run
injection moulded 1/35 Soviet and
German armoured cars, and an
assortment of aircraft kits, which
includes some hitherto overlooked
subjects in injection moulded
plastic. Amongst this latter group
is a comprehensive collection
of Augsburg’s early eagles,
including kits of the Bf.109A, B1,
C1, and D1, all in quarter scale.
Packaged in an attractively
box, the AMG
light grey plastic sprues, a loose
lower wing section, one clear
sprue, and a set of rubberised tyres.
Decals are included for four scheme
options (in fact, there are really only
three options, as two of the aircraft
featured are virtually identical).
