I have always liked the Bf-110, it just has very pleasing lines to me. While it proved a general failure as a heavy escort, it still proved to be a formidable foe in other roles. I have built this kit before under a different boxing, and have [...]
The 110's from the Wespen geschwader are one of my favorite German aircraft, unfortunately I never did build one, till now.
This kit is the Eduard 8203 from 2007 in 1/48 scale. It does include a lot of extra PE parts which are very detailed.
Originally this 1/48 Fujimi Bf- 110 was to have the mouth marking on the nose, but the decal wouldn’t lay down nicely on the compound curved nose. I found some photographs in a book that showed a similarly painted aircraft with the spade marking[...]
After the Yugoslavian Bf110, here´s another one with non-German markings.
Cyberhobby/Dragon kit, built it almost two times. The model was already in a progressed state when it had an accident....bought a new kit and my dad started all [...]
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 [...]

Despite the fact that Eduard’s kits usually get glowing reviews I can always find some nits to pick. Granted the level of surface detail in mostly fantastic, and some of the parts fit briliantly.
However, some of the parts breakdowns don’t ma[...]
This is my tribute to Air Vice Marshal “Johnnie” Johnson. It is a simulated dogfight between his Spitfire IX JE J EN398 and a Bf-110 C.
I will not go into the history of those amazing planes, as they are so well documented, but I[...]
Another contribution by my dad in 2015 to our Airwar over Austria theme.
The book "Hungarian Fighter Colours 1930-1945 Vol.2" by Denes Bernard and György Punka was used as reference.
Revell Germany kit, Cutting Edge decals, Gunze RLM paints, aer[...]
So, back with another selection of photos... this kit was finished at the beginning of this year and is Dragon's 32nd scale Bf110C-7 kit finished as a C-4 during the Battle of Britain. All the control surfaces are moulded in neutral, so I start[...]
