The original Bf110 aircraft built by Messerschmitt was a twin-engine heavy fighter, a type known to Germans as Zerstörer (Destroyer). This aircraft, in a variety of guises, served throughout WWII. Its greatest success was early on in the war, but its innate weakness of a lack of aerial agility was dangerously exposed during the Battle of Britain. The Bf110D, based on the preceding C model, was a Zerstörer specially designed for long-range missions. It came about partly in response to the Norwegian campaign, where the need for a long-range anti-shipping aircraft became apparent. The Bf110D-3 was essentially a long-range shipping patrol aircraft that could carry two drop tanks, either 900 or 300 liters in size. An ETC 500 bomb rack could also be fitted. One other modification was the lengthening of the fuselage in order to fit a two-man life raft in case the Luftwaffe fighter was shot down over the sea.

One innovation on this kit is the fact that all the ailerons and rudders can be modeled in different positions according to the modeler’s wishes. Detail on this kit is finely executed, with true-to-scale panel lines carefully represented. All the minute detail inside the two-man cockpit can be easily viewed through the clear plastic canopy. Another addition especially for the Bf110D is the inclusion of wing-mounted fuel drop tanks. Photo-etched metal is the perfect medium for the pilots’ seat belts, while many plastic parts are made from slide molds. On the machine guns, for example, the barrels are made from slide molds so that the muzzles can be depicted as hollow. This is an extremely well-crafted model, one that slots well into the Wing Tech range. For aircraft modelers seeking something that will go a bit further, this long-range Bf110D-3 is the solution!
