Fortunately i found some free time these days so i decided to finish this pending project, with Eswube's permission.

The Bf.110 was a twin-engined German heavy fighter developed in the 30s and used by the Luftwaffe and other during the World War II.  It was armed with two MG FF 20 mm cannons, four 7.92 mm (.312 in) MG 17 machine guns, and one 7.92 mm (.312 in) MG 15 machine gun or twin-barrel MG 81Z for defence .

It enjoyed considerable success in the early stages of the war although it lacked agilty when flying, however this flaw could be mitigated with the correct tactics.
When the RAF started to bomb German territory, it was decided to use these airplanes as night fighters, a role where it proved to be very good at it. After the Battle of Britain, it enjoyed a successful period as an air superiority fighter and strike aircraft in other theatres.

During Balkans campaing, Eastern Front and North African campaing, it served valuable ground support and it was also the most widely used night fighter of the Luftwaffe.

Many versions of it were made:
  • Bf 110 A Prototypes with two Junkers Jumo 210 engines.
    Bf 110 A-0 The designation of the first four pre-production aircraft.

    Bf 110 B Small-scale production with two Jumo 210 engines.
    Bf 110 B-0 First pre-production aircraft, similar to B-1.
    Bf 110 B-1 Zerstörer, four 7.92 mm (.312 in) MG 17 machine guns and two 20 mm MG FF cannons, nose-mounted.
    Bf 110 B-2 Reconnaissance, both MG FF cannons removed, and various camera models added.
    Bf 110 B-3 Trainer. MG FF cannons removed, and extra radio gear added. Some war weary B-1 were later refitted as B-3s.

    Bf 110 C First major production series, DB 601 engines.
    Bf 110 C-0 Ten pre-production aircraft.
    Bf 110 C-1 Zerstörer, DB 601 B-1 engines.
    Bf 110 C-2 Zerstörer, fitted with FuG 10 radio, upgraded from FuG III.
    Bf 110 C-3 Zerstörer, upgraded 20 mm MG FFs to MG FF/M.
    Bf 110 C-4 Zerstörer, upgraded crew armor.
    Bf 110 C-4/B Fighter-bomber based on C-4, fitted with a pair of 250 kg (550 lb) ETC 250 bomb racks and upgraded DB 601 Ba engines.

    Bf 110 C-6 Experimental Zerstörer, additional single 30 mm (1.18 in) MK 101 cannon in underfuselage mount, DB 601P engines.
    Bf 110 C-7 Fighter-bomber based on C-4/B, two ETC-500 centerline bomb racks capable of carrying two 500 kg (1,100 lb) bombs, uprated DB 601P engines.

    Bf 110 D Heavy fighter/fighter-bomber, extreme range versions based on C-series, prepared to operate with external fuel tanks. Often stationed in Norway.
    Bf 110 D-0 Prototype utilizing C-3 airframes modified with 1,050 L (277 US gal) belly-mounted tank called Dackelbauch ("dachshund's belly" in German).
    Bf 110 D-1 Long-range Zerstörer, modified C series airframes with option to carry Dackelbauch belly tank and underwing drop tanks.
    Bf 110 D-1/R1 Long-range Zerstörer, Dackelbauch ventral tank, option to carry additional wing mounted 900 L (240 US gal) drop tanks.[12]
    Bf 110 D-1/R2 Long-range Zerstörer, droppable 85 L oil tank under the fuselage instead of Dackelbauch ventral tank, two wing mounted 900 L (240 US gal) drop tanks.[12]
    Bf 110 D-2 Long-range Zerstörer, two wing-mounted 300 L (80 US gal) drop tanks and centerline mounted bomb racks for two 500 kg (1,100 lb) bombs.
    Bf 110 D-3 Long-range Zerstörer, lengthened tail for rescue dinghy. Either two wing-mounted 300 L (80 US gal) or 900 L (240 US gal) drop tanks could be fitted. Optional fitting of ETC 500 bombracks (impossible with 900 L drop tanks).

WOW..no words to describe how nice that is, GREAT work ;-)

Only thing: it should be named 'Spanner-Anlage' instead of 'Spanner-Anläge' (first sheet) ;-)

The paint schemes look great indeed (though I hoped for bit more of them, particularly of later models ;) ). Good work! :)

A fantastic series, and at almost 50 pages, perhaps the crowning glory of Chapter 11!

Definitely superb work on the 110 compilation, and those lesser known examples! :D
