In January 1942 II./NJG1 transferred to Sint-Truiden/Sint-Trond Belgium at a time when the RAF was re-evaluating the success of their operations against Germany as well as bad weather for the first few months of the year meant the need for night fighters was at a low. In February 1942 scoreless II./NJG1 moved to Koksijde so they could take part in what would be "Operation Cerberus", the successful breakout from Brest to Germany of the battleships Scharnhorst and Gneisenau and heavy cruiser Prince Eugen.

Messerschmitt Bf 110E

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flaw that became glaringly obvious during the battle of Britain, when Bf-110s suffered heavy losses and were withdrawn from battle.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.

Hobby Master's 1:72 scale Messerschmitt Bf 110 is an example of a well-crafted, quality model. It has a large bird-cage canopy that is removable, revealing pad-printed dials and gauges and rear gunner's position fitted with twin defensive machine guns. 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.
