Greetings fellow modelers!
It has been a wile since I posted the last model (it's summer, so I guess it's normal), so here I bring to you today my last model: It's the twin engined german heavy fighter, the Bf-110.
Last month I was given this [...]
The Me Bf110 needs no introduction for most modelers; the distinctive twin tail, twin engines and slender fuselage made for a very handsome looking airplane, albeit one that was a failure in its original intended role of Destroyer in the face of[...]
I had this kit in my stash for some time. I bought a Cutting Edge engine correction set for it, and didn't think about building it until I saw the release of the Eduard BF110G-2 kit. The boxing I bought was the Wespen release, which comes with a[...]

Here I am again! This time with the new tooling BF110 from Airfix in 1/72. Very nice model and it was a pleasure to build it.
I was very impressed wi[...]
This kit is effectively the 1/48 kit scaled down, and Eduard have done a great job of cramming as much detail as possible into the smaller version. Surface detail was superb, and the fit of parts virtually perfect except where the engine nacell[...]
One of the well-known "facts" regarding aviation development during the Second World War is that the Messerschmitt Bf-110 series was "a compromise in conflicting requirements, resulting in a mediocrity," with a combat performance that relegated [...]
