Oxford Diecast Oxford Aviation AC051
Messerschmitt Bf 110G Diecast Model
Luftwaffe JG 1, S9+AB, 1943

1:72 Scale   Length   Width
Messerschmitt Bf 110G   7.25"   8.75"

Our latest addition to the 1:72 scale Oxford Aviation series comprises the twin- engined heavy fighter Messerschmitt Bf 110 G-2 as flown by the Wespen Geschwader on the Western Front in 1943. The Bf 110-G version of the Messerschmitt was a fast fighter-bomber, often used against Allied heavy bombers. Our model is decorated in grey/dark green camouflage scheme on the upper wings with grey blue splotches along the fuselage and tail fins, whilst the underside is painted a pale grey blue. Additional colour comes with yellow fuselage bands and lower wing tips. In front of the cockpit, note the cartoon graphics of the Squadron's Wespen (Wasp) nose art on each side, complete with goggles!. Other details include black gun barrels and rusty brown exhaust pipes.

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flaw that became glaringly obvious during the battle of Britain, when Bf-110s suffered heavy losses and were withdrawn from battle.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