    Hobby Master 1/48 Air Power Series

    BF 109G-6
    "Yellow 6", Ofw. Alfred Surau, 9./JG 3,
    Germany, September 1943
    The first Bf-109G "Gustav" entered service in March 1942. New features were a pressurized
    cockpit with three larger guns mounted on the nose and none on the wings but could be field
    mounted. The Bf-109G could overheat causing oil leaks; starting a fire forcing the pilot to bail out.
    The Gustav was produced in many variants including long-range fighters, recon fighters and
    bomber destroyers. The Bf-109G-6 lacked a pressurized cockpit but was the most numerous
    Bf-109 produced and the first to carry 13mm machine guns; equivalent to the American 50 caliber
    Browning.

    Ofw. Alfred Surau scored his first victory on February 28, 1943 while flying Bf-109G-6 "Yellow 6"
    over the Eastern Front. In mid 1943 JG. 3 "Udet" units returned to Germany to defend against
    Allied bomber attacks. Surau's first Western Front kill was a B-17 on September 3, 1943. In only 6
    months Surau managed to increase his victory total to 41. He is one of the Luftwaffe's most
    effective but shortest lived aces because on October 14, 1943 he was shot down and died while
    destroying a B-17, his 45th victory.
