    Here we go! Not quite the complexity of the Dauntless sitting here staring at me, but it will do. A real pleasure so far.

    Here's some pics of the cover and a parts sheet:

    And what I have so far built, the MG bay, MG's, and ammo boxes:

    That's what I have so far. Wish me luck!

    Amazing! The 110 Zerstorer is one of my favorite models!

    This is also a favorite of mine. Not a very successful design practically, but I always liked the looks of it. Sounds like it's going together well so far?

    Yep.

    From a practical standpoint, the ME110 and its successor, the ME210/410 were both unsuccessful. But they look really cool and very menacing. :D

    I have wanted to build a 110, so I am glad to see someone doing it. The 110 may have been a failure as a bomber escort, but I understand that it was used pretty effectivly as a night fighter.

    Not to quibble, but the 110 was only unsuccessful in its originally intended role of long-range heavy fighter. As a fighter-bomber (Jabo in German) and night-fighter it was modestly successful. One of the most accomplished participants in the Battle of Britain on the German side was Erprobrungsgruppe 210, whose low-level fighter-bomber strikes in the 110 (and 109 as well) were one of the few tactics the RAF had real trouble with. The RAF and USAAF later copied these tactics with great success over occupied Europe.

    I see Halinksi is calling the plane a BF-110. Is this correct? I know the correct designation for a 109 is BF (why that is, I have no idea), but I thought that most, if not all of the other Messerschmits were ME's? Can anyone elighten me? Thanks

    At the time the 109 and 110 were designed, the Messerschmitt company was known as the Bayerische Flugzeugwerke or Bavarian Aircraft Company. BF was the abbreviation. After the name was changed to Messerschmitt, all designs produced by them were given the "Me." designation.

    I read somewhere that the ME210 was a big success in the Hungarian airforce. I'll dig up my WW2 books tonight.

    Anyway, would you guys know of any BF110 models I can purchase and download online? I've already done Kancho's excellent ME410 and I'm itching to get my hands on a BF110.

    Progessing, slowly

    Have a little more done:

    My first attempt at a semi-detailed cockpit(knobs on the throttle levers) Guess I'll have to leave the canopy open on this one

    [​IMG]

    I thought my P-38 was a big bird. This one's gonna be huge.

    Don't have that japanese hole punch yet, so I didn't do the sandwiched instrument panel. Maybe on the Dauntless.

    Cheers

    Looks great, even with the "flat" control panel. Good job!
