The Messerschmitt Bf 110 was undoubtedly one of the most significant aircraft of World War II, yet it was branded a failure after the Battle of Britain due to the heavy losses it suffered to the RAF. Despite these setbacks in the summer of 1940, the Messerschmitt Bf 110 continued to be used effectively in other theatres and roles until the last days of the war, particularly as a night fighter in defence of the Reich. This book details the range of options open to the modeller when building the Bf 110, including the different kits available, after market products, and the wide range of variants and colour schemes used.
