The Messerschmitt Bf 110 Zerstörer was a twin engined heavy fighter that first flew in 1936 and was used by the Luftwaffe throughout WWII. Heavily armed, it operated successfully as a day fighter during the early months of the war, but its poor manoeuvrability led to heavy losses in combat against single-engined fighters like the Spitfire and Hurricane. It was later used successfully in other roles, including ground attack, reconnaissance and most notably as a night fighter, where it took a heavy toll against the British bomber formations.
This model Bf 110C design by the superb Brian Taylor is of conventional all-wood construction. A set of moulded accessories and a laser-cut wood pack are available. It builds into a 1:9 scale, 1803 mm (71″) wingspan replica of this iconic WWII fighter, which is powered by a pair of .30 -.40 cu. in. two-stroke engines, but experienced modellers should be able to convert it to electric power (details not supplied, so please send us information if you make a successful EP version!) It is not suitable for beginners, either to plan building or model flying.
