Latest details on Border Model's Bf-109G-6 "Limited edition" boxing:
The brand new limited edition 1/35 Bf-109G6 is all but released to the public. We have the feature set of the announcement about what is in the kit in the photo below...
Inside the main box Border has added a resin pilot in the small box (with three ace pilots in each kit) HOWEVER - the six other pilots made for this release will be randomly put into each box, so the types of pilot you get (after the three in each normal boxing) will be a complete random purchase (unless you have a good model shop owner who can screen them for you)  

The resin figures are all high-quality, made using brand new 3D technology. This one is one of the three in the normal boxing.
erich Hartmann is in every boxing, the dead pilot is one of the random options
This wounded pilot is one of the random choices also
In addition to pilots, the limited edition will also have metal parts, such as metal propellers that can be made into a bent or crashed diorama. Seat belts made of metal from photo-etch and the metal Wgr.21 rocket packs.

We have already seen the fully riveted kit in previous sprue shots...
The builds with the features of the kit including full engine look like an Bf-109 G6 to us
Of course, the exclusive decals of several aces will also be in the kit. The test builds that are coming out look good so far...
