The Bf110 from Messerschmitt was produced in large numbers by Germany during WWII. The Bf110 was a twin-engine heavy fighter. While it achieved success as a fighter early in WWII, it received a mauling at the hands of the RAF during the Battle of Britain. As a result, many aircraft were withdrawn from the type of combat they were originally designed for, and they were instead used for other purposes such as fighter-bomber or reconnaissance aircraft. One new role for the Bf110 was as a night-fighter (Nachtjäger), and indeed this was a successful role as it was to become the major night-fighting aircraft of the Luftwaffe.

The Bf110D was essentially a long-range version that could carry a large fuel drop tank, plus a life raft for emergency use. Fitted with radar systems, the first Bf110D night-fighters were sent to Holland with NJG.1 to gain operational experience. In service, many aircraft were painted in matt black paint to enhance their nighttime stealth. From these beginnings, Germany eventually created more capable night-fighters such as the Bf110F-4 and G-4. This Wing-Tech kit possesses all the inherent detail of Cyber-Hobby’s previously released and highly applauded Bf110 family (consisting of the Bf110D-3 and Bf110D-1/R2 “Dackelbauch”). As a night-fighter, the kit features the characteristic radar antennas. These are provided as both plastic-injected and photo-etched parts to allow the modeler to choose their medium of preference. Modelers are bound to be delighted with the level of detail and accuracy of this interesting Wing-Tech kit.
