Under new Management...1/48 Messerschmitt Bf110C-4 Royal Yugoslav Airforce


Recommended Posts

My dad acquired a liking for 110s at the moment. So after starting the Iraqi one he will soon start a Yugoslav one.

This aircraft changed ownership after it´s crew made a navigation mistake and landed in Yugoslavia instead of Bulgaria, a week before the German invasion in Yugoslavia. The crew was detained and the 110 received VVKJ markings and camo.

 

Gonna use the good old Fujimi kit

using LF Models decals for the markings

This is good Reini. I'm sure you know that the 1/48 kits fuselage is too narrow from the back of the cockpit to the tail. Making the tail look weak.

My Dragon bf 110D kit is on the way. Now I can do both plane I wanted to do for the BOB GB.

I´ve read about the fuselage width, don´t care.

Looking forward to yours 😉

correcting the position lights by sanding away a bit of the wing corner and simulating the light with a piece of plastic rod

Interesting camo scheme, it's like the precursor to the Iranian camo.

reminded me of the Asia Minor camo too 😄

Great looking camo @Reini78 :) 

 

BTW what is that big bulge on the bottom of the fuselage on the Fujimi box art?

Thanks reini, that bulge is a fuel tank.
