Under new Management…1/48 Messerschmitt Bf110C-4 Royal Yugoslav Airforce
My dad wanted to build the good old Fujimi 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 LF Models, 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.
