  1. Bf110C-6 2N+RH of 1./EprGr.210, St.Omer, July 1940 This is the Eduard 1/72 Bf110C-6 Limited Edition built for the Bf110 STGB build thread here This model represents the aircraft flown by Leutnant Erich Beudel and his gunner Obergefreiter Heinrich Diemer, which took off at 16.35 on 29 July 1940 to take part in the gruppe's attack on the convoy codenamed 'CAT'. As the attack developed the 110's were intercepted by Hurricanes of 151 Squadron and this aircraft was one of those damaged in the attack and later crash-landed back at St.Omer. Ltn. Beudel was unhurt but Heinrich Diemer was hospitalised with bullet wounds. Erich Beudel would be killed flying another 110C-6 (the S9+TH) later in the Battle of Britain and Heinrich Diemer would return to duty but was later posted as missing on the Russian Front in September 1942. This aircraft was one of six 110C-6's originally issued to 1./ZG1 and taken with them when they were detached to form the 1st Staffel of ErprGr.210 in July 1940. Although they had their new unit badge painted on, they retained their old '2N' codes from ZG1 until new aircraft were taken on charge at the start of August 1940 when all had the 'S9' gruppe codes applied - this did not apply to the subject aircraft as it appears to have been written off in the crash landing. Info from John Vasco's very interesting and informative book on ErprGr.210 'Messerschmitt Bf110: Bombsights over England'. I enjoyed building this kit, though I found it a bit challenging in places compared to the other two I built in that some of the kit parts needed modification to fit the resin parts and I had some difficulty with the assembly - whether as a result of the surgery to the kit parts, bad luck or ham-fistedness I cannot say for sure - overall though it was easier than I had expected and I am pleased with the end result. Cheers, Stew
  2. For my third build, I will be attempting Eduard's 1/72 Bf110C-6 - BM's own Paul A H provided this detailed and well-illustrated review ... and this is the version I hope to build: According to John Vasco's book 'Messerschmitt BF110 - Bombsights over England' this aircraft flew from St.Omer airfield on the 29 July 1940 to take part in the attack on the convoy 'Cat' and was damaged in combat with Hurricanes of 151 Squadron resulting in a crash-landing on its return to St.Omer. Pictures of this aircraft on page 50 show that at the time of the crash the rear-gunner's canopy had been modified with the semi-circular cut-out for the rearward-pointing MG but the aircraft also has the recessed gun stowage slot on the right-hand side of the fuselage (I hope the poor quality of my photograph of the book will negate any copyright issues but am happy to remove the picture if it does not constitute 'fair usage'): Anyway, all I plan on adding to the kit are the Quickboost exhausts which are not really necessary but nice to have: ... and some paint and glue; I will be using the Phoenix Precision Paints RLM65, 70 & 71 plus the RLM24 for the blue parts of the propeller spinners. Cheers, Stew
