1/32 Messerschmitt Bf110C-3, 235-5, 235° Squadriglia


Recommended Posts

Finally, here's my Dragon 1/32 Bf110C-3 Night Fighter (modified from the C-7 kit). Build represents a/c 235-5, 235° Squadriglia, 60° Gruppo, 41° Stormo Intercettori at Lonate Pozzolo airbase, Spring 1943

Build thread can be found here

Many thanks to all who helped along the way, but especially to John Vasco himself who guided me along the precarious tightrope regarding the subtleties in the variant differences of the Bf110. Quite a bit I would have been very unaware of and wouldn't have modded without his help. The C-3 is a very interesting beast to say the least.

I am in love with the build and the photography! This is one of the RFI’s that I will be revisiting time and again.

I can only echo Tom, Kevin's and Mike's comments - beautiful work and a top shelf result Iain!  The camo is a rare one for night fighters and really sets your build apart.  I have a C-7 kit in the stash and also plan to convert it to a night-fighter.  My youngest great-uncle served as a radio/radar operator on both 110's and 88's in NJG's 2 and 5 and the build will honor his service.   Hopefully mine will turn out as well as yours!

Thank you Ernest! Wow, that's an amazing bit of history and a story you are able to impart into your build! I cannot wait to see it unfold!!

Thanks Rod. Yes, although she fought me and my skills a bit, I love the 110 as an aircraft. Highly enjoyable overall

Hi Iain,

 

Been meaning to comment on this for a while, but took a bit of a break just as you got this one across the line. The result is spectacular: fine model building skills, excellent paintwork and some well considered weathering. The photo's do it justice too!

Another stunningly beautiful Bf110 Iain, she really is a cracker. Many congratulations on a very fine build, and you’ve presented her very well with the black background.
