    You better watch out! When I look at those tanks I have the feeling Robert Sanderson's Can-opener can't be far away. Nice repaint, but I'm of course biased......

    Cheers,

    Ah yes, the infamous Bf-110. Able to outturn, outclimb and outgun even a very lightly loaded Spitfire. Master of dogfights, butcher of the BoB, feared in France.

    (Those Tigers better bring some mobile flak as cover.)

    You better hurry.................



    After all these years still an amazing model, with the wobbling antenna wire and moving chin strap.

    (Sorry Pete, I don't intend to steal your thread, but you started all this with the tanks....................)
