Messerschmitt Bf110C/D 1:72


The Messerschmitt bf110 was a twin engined, two seat, long range strategic heavy fighter designed to escort bombers to their target and back. The concept proved to be flawed when, during the Battle of Britain, the bf110 was up against Spitfires and Hurricanes, two very capable fighters that could completely out perform it.

The Airfix kit is of either the Messerschmitt bf110C or bf110D versions. The bf110C was the first variant to receive the Daimler-Benz DB600 engine that, despite giving the aircraft a speed of 541 km/h (336 mph), still left the bf110 at a disadvantage against single seat fighters. The D variant was a long range fighter that had drop tanks fitted and armament removed to improve its range.
