Some great photos there- that second one, the pilot must have been cursing the photographer, either using a flash or powerful spotlight, right into his face just before he takes off on a night mission! So much for night vision?
As a Brit, I have to say, the shape of the 111 always makes me think of the Blitz- very evocative, and 1940/41 they had the night-time skies over the UK pretty much to themselves save for a few Defiants and some hardy day fighter types- wasnt until the end of '41 the Beaufighter started making an impact by hacking them down in droves.
Looking forward to seeing this build and will be following closely.
As an aside- my Father was a schoolboy in County Durham during the war, and told me about a time a 111 came down after it got lost on a Glasgow raid. He and his friends cycled up to the wreckage after school which was being guarded by a local policeman. After a while the cop left and they snuck in, and my Dad came away with a big chunk of the perspex from the nose. He took it home, put a poker in the fire (his Mum was out) and pushed a hole through it. He then proceeded to put his finger in the hole, which contracted, trapping his finger. He then had to wait for his mother to come home and help him round to the fire station where, after much joking, they eventually cut it off!
