Under new Management…1/48 Messerschmitt Bf110C-4 Royal Yugoslav Airforce

July 18, 2020 · in Aviation · · 8 · 2.1K


My dad wanted to build the good old 110 now for a while. It can´t keep up with the newer Eduard and Dragon offerings but still makes a nice model. Decided to do an exotic scheme.
Used parts from a True Details resin cockpit, EZ Line for the antenna wires and brake lines, decals from , nose MGs from the sparesbox, camo done with Gunze H67 RLM65, Tamiya XF-60 Dark Yellow, XF-64 Red Brown and XF-58 Olive Green.

On April 1st 1941 a German Bf110C4 flew from Vienna, via Hungary with intended destination in Romania. Due to a navigation error, the aircraft landed at Kraljevo airfield in central Serbia.
The crew,Lt. Hans Diehter,Uoff.Wilhelm Pries and mechanic Eugen Schaufelle, was interned, the plane overpainted and a few days later transferred to Belgrade and later to the temporary airfield Veliki Radinci
where it was destroyed on April 12th 1941 so that it didn´t fall back into German hands after Yugoslavia was invaded on April 6th 1941.

  1. That is a very fine looking 110, Reinhard. @grimreaper
    The scheme is looking beautifully.
    Still looking for a new model and looking at yours, a 110 is a good candidate.

  2. Very nicely done, Reinhard. @grimreaper
    Even though the aircraft had a number of shortcomings, I've always liked the look of this plane. Your rendition of it - especially in its' uncommon markings - is great to see!

  3. Nicely done Reinhard, great job on an rather old kit.

  4. Very nice, Reinhard!
    I love the exotic scheme!

  5. Very cool livery, makes this one a true oddball for the immense bf110 liveries available. And the Fujimi kit is indeed still worth building despite its shortcomings

  6. Nice work and great choice of markings.

  7. 🙂 … Greetings … 🙂 :
    This BF-110 really stands out, from the camouflage scheme, the cockpit, to the national markings,
    you have done an eye catching work Reinhard, not to mention the fact that it is the old FUJIMI kit.

  8. Thanks a lot for your kind words!
