The Messerschmitt Bf 110 was undoubtedly one of the most significant aircraft of World War II. Despite suffering setbacks in the summer of 1940 at the hands of the RAF, it continued to be used effectively in other theatres and roles until the last days of the war, particularly as a night fighter against RAF Bomber Command's strategic bombing campaign over the Reich. This title shows you how to correct and convert basic 1/48-scale kits of the Bf 110 into many different variants, using a wide selection of aftermarket detail sets, conversions, accessories and decals for both day and night fighter schemes.
Brett Green is an active modeller and the editor of www.hyperscale.com, an online model magazine established in 1998. He has published two books describing the colours and markings of Luftwaffe aircraft: ‘Augsburg’s Last Eagles’, on the late-war Messerschmitt Bf 109, and ‘Stormbird Colors’ on the Me 262. Brett lives in Sydney, Australia, with his wife and two children.
"While this volume obviously deals specifically with the Messerschmitt Bf 110, the pages are filled with hints and tips which will be of value for all aircraft projects. As regards coverage of the models, it's hard to find fault: the photography throughout the book is superb and each project is shown in detail at every stage." -Rowan Baylis, AeroScale
