I have eventually decided to post my Me 110 build. I have now most of the problems and references sorted with only the rear canopy an unknown factor. As Murphy would have it, as I passed the point of no return, Paster John of AIMS announced his conversion. I am sure his conversion will be more complete and easier to do but I have done too much cutting and pasting on the model to chance now.
So where did the interest start. I passed thru Londen in 1999 and picked up the 1/48 Cutting Edge sheet for the Me 110 G-4 at the old Hannants Shop. (BTW the highlight of my London visit.) I have subsequently built two Monogram kits with the markings on the sheet, the second one with the Cutting edge correction set as well. This is the model in the picture. But I wanted a Me 110 G-4 in my favorite scale. When Dragon released the 110, I picked up a C-7 hoping to one day do a Me 110 G-4. During 2015 I passed thru Hong Kong on a Family visit. My modeling friends in the airlines gave me hobby shop addresses and to cut a long story short, I picked up a Cyber Hobby kit for $50 after discount, reasoning the conversion will be easier using the E-2 Trop. Between other builds I have slowly been working on the G-4 ever since.
The inspiration for the build
I decided to do the most difficult part first. If it did not work out, I could always build a C or E
Some more parts to be made. I used the Monogram 1/48 kit as reference and scaled up the dimensions 1.5 times. The Dragon floor is 10 mm too long for the G-4, so I must still cut it here.
I hope you like it.
