I have an unbuilt Revell Me-110 I cannot sell because some nincompoop dribbled tube glue over the fuselage and tail and wings while they were still on the sprues.. Some people should have their hands slapped and given toy balloons instead.
OK, So what Hun 2 place plane from WW1 can I use that has a a wild color scheme? I can 't use the extra decals from the WNW twin engine kits as they are bombers and the Zerstorer was a fighter, so to speak. I could put it on floats and then use that great WW1 naval hexagon scheme I can get from the WNW Hamberger kits.. I can use the floats from one of the 1/24 beaver kits. That should do it. And I can use one of my pair of 1/32 Laurel and Hardy figures ;as the pilot and gunner. They are seated already. Wow, Now I am cooking. I detest the Nazis and anything to do with their era, but in WW1 colors, well, I can live with that. Only I will not put that swastika on anything, other than a roll of toilet paper.
What's that you say? The Edo floats from the 1/24 Beaver kit are wrong as the Germans never used them? Picky, picky, picky.
I feel much better now that I can use that Me-110 kit for something. Maybe I can sling a torpedo under it too.
Again, complaining that all that extra weight on the 110 plus the drag of the floats would make the plane too under-powered to take off? Well I'll just put another motor in the nose and make it a three engine aircraft. I wonder if I have an extra Me-110 engine somewhere in my parts boxes. Hey, any of you guys have an extra Me-110 engine nacelle and parts?
Or I can just leave it two engine and put an 88mm gun barrel coming out the nose.
Or put the gun in the nose and the third engine in the rear as a pusher.
OK, now we have it manned and armed and floated and colored and maybe have added an engine. So what now? Any ideas?
