Amercom 1:100 Aircraft of the World ACSL18
Messerschmitt Bf 110G Diecast Model
Luftwaffe IV./NJG 1, G9+EF, Heinz-Wolfgang Schnaufer, St.Trond, Belgium, October 1944

1:100 Scale   Length   Width
Messerschmitt Bf 110G   5.25"   6.25"

In November 1939 the 17 year old Heinz-Wolfgang Schnaufer joined the Luftwaffe and in January 1942 was based at Saint-Trond Belgium where he became known as "The Night Ghost Of Saint-Trond". By the end of WWII the 23-year old Schnaufer was NJG-1 Kommandeur with several medals having flown 164 missions and 121 victories making him the top scoring Nachtjager pilot. On February 21, 1945 he added 9 RAF bombers to his victories. After surviving WWII it is almost ironic that Schnaufer died at age 28 in a car accident.

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flaw that became glaringly obvious during the battle of Britain, when Bf-110s suffered heavy losses and were withdrawn from battle.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