Messerschmitt Bf 110G   7.25"   8.75"

German Ace Martin Drewes started out with Panzer Regiment 6. He transferred to the Luftwaffe and quickly rising to Major. He eventually commanded III/NJG 1. Flying his Bf 110G-4U1 he would maneuver below the unprotected Allied bombers and fire up into them. Once he shot a fully loaded bomber that exploded destroying his own plane. He flew 235 missions with 52 victories, 43 were at night and 50 were 4 engine planes. Awards, the German Cross in Gold; Luftwaffe Honor Goblet; Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross; Oakleaves for the Iron Cross. The Bf 110G-4 was a dedicated night fighter entering service in late 1942. It received a larger engine and the plane was strengthened to accommodate this. This strengthening allowed the plane to carry heavier payloads resulting in an extended service life. It also had extra protection and carried factory installed airborne interception radar. There were field kits available so each pilot could personalize his aircraft with various armaments to help him achieve a higher rate of success. By mid 1944 the Me-410 was replacing the Bf 110G and in February 1945 production ended.

Messerschmitt Bf 110G

Designed to meet a Luftwaffe requirement for a long range, multipurpose fighter, the Bf-110 was first flown on May 12th, 1936. Fast and well-armed, the Bf-110 lacked maneuverability—a flaw that became glaringly obvious during the battle of Britain, when Bf-110s suffered heavy losses and were withdrawn from battle. Redesigned Bf-110s were equipped with radar and enjoyed great success as night fighters, eventually becoming the Luftwaffe's primary aircraft in that role. Most of Germany's night fighter aces flew the Bf-110 at least once, and some of them—including top German night fighter ace Heinz-Wolfgang Schnaufer—flew it exclusively.

The top port of the engine nacelles is seamlessly blended with the radiators under each wing. There is a removable under-wing mounted fuel tank, twin rocket tubes on each wing and counter-balance weights separately attached to each aileron. A variety of weapons configurations such as center mounted bombs, nose- and center- mounted machine guns are included. The series includes night-fighter variants with nose-mounted radar antenna.
