1/48 scale Messerschmitt Bf 110G-4 is available online from Squadron.com
Here is Revell-Monogram's 1/48 scale Messerschmitt Bf 110G-4 kit.
I have depicted this model as a Messerschmitt Bf 110G-4d /R3 /B2,
code G9+BA, W.Nr. 180850. The R3 indicates the two droptanks under the
wings and the B2 represents the 30mm cannons in the nose.
This is the last plane used by the German night-fighter ace Maj.
Heinz-Wolfgang Schnaufer, nicknamed "the Ghost from St.Trond" with 121
victories as Kommodore NJG 5.
The plane was found by allied troops at Schleswig-Holstein airfield
(northern Germany) in May 1945.
The plane exhibits the features of the latest technical evolution of
this type. These include 5mm armour-plate in front of the cockpit to
protect the pilot, the Fug 218 "Neptun" radar in front and rear and the
"Eberspächer" flame-hiders .
The 20mm cannons in the lower nose were removed on this variant.
I built the kit straight from the box with only a few exceptions.
Both rudders were cut off and glued in deflected positions. The "Neptun"
radar, the amour-plate and the flame-hiders were scratch built.
I added some fishing line, hypodermic needles and rod to make the
cockpit and the brakelines look more realistic. No aftermarket products
The plane was painted in the late-war factory scheme for
night-fighters - RLM 75/76 - by using X-tracolors. The model was
weathered using artist oils.
