This plane was from 7./NJG 6 and was photographed at Neubiberg in 1945. I used the photos as a painting reference showing the camouflage to be a reverse scheme, RLM 76 over 75 and not the usual 75 over 76. The overlapping white paint from the r[...]
This is my last model, and the first finish this year.

Around my home town of Eastbourne during August and September 1940, no less than 3 Messerschmitt Bf 110 heavy fighters were brought down over land and probably many others were lost off the coast, unable to regain comparative safety in north Fra[...]
Shot down during the Battle of Britian, it was actually assigned to a bomber unit. KG55. Interesting history of a fighter operating in a bomber unit, and still getting shot down over England. Some references say it was an "E" variant with Rlm[...]
