Following on from my posting on the Messerschmitt Bf 109, I now give you it's big brother*. The 'heavy fighter' concept appeared to be the weapon of the future in the mid 1930s as the larger airframe could carry a very heavy armament. Sadly though (for their crews) the concept failed when confronted by modern single-seaters like the Spitfire and D.520.
I have always had a soft spot for the '110 - partly because the old Airfix 1/72 kit was the first model I ever painted. Also it's reputation for being a bit crap makes it irresistible and of course it looks cool.
All of my Bf 110 models were built from the Academy (minicraft) kit. Here we have a pair of '110s, painted for operations over France and Egypt respectively.
