WOW293 Messerschmitt Bf.110
Out of Stock
The Messerschmitt Bf 110 was a twin engine heavy fighter armed with 2 x 20mm cannons, 4 x 7.92mm machine guns at the front and 1 x MG fitted to the rear for defence. The Bf 110 served with success in the early stages of the war during the Polish and France campaigns but was hopelessly outclassed by the RAF’s fighters during the Battle of Britain where is served as a bomber escort. Redeployed as a nightfighter in the West the BF 110 was well suited to this role, especially when flown by aces like Major Schnaufer who claimed 121 victories solely in this type of aircraft. In other theatres such as the Balkans and the Russian front, the 110 soldiered on as a ground attack/fighter bomber and performed admirably. A 37mm cannon could also be fitted under the belly of the Bf 110 which made this a formidably armed aircraft when used in the ground attack or bomber interceptor role. The 110 was also adopted by Italy, Romania and Hungary amongst others with over 6000 aircraft being produced during its operational career.
Our 1/30 aircraft is from Zerstorergeschwader 26 which was operating from Berca in North Africa in 1942 and is limited to 3 in number worldwide.
