Thread: Official Messerschmitt Bf110 Painting Thread

    Default Official Messerschmitt Bf110 Painting Thread

    Well after some time of complete inactivity I finally found some time to do one of my planned repaints. This time I repainted one of the new Bf110. Thanks to Nightbomber I also found the appropriate decals so none had to be made myself. The plane was first stripped of its original decals and most of the paint and was then painted in dark gray. Afterwards a coat of white acrylic was applied in such way that the grey still shined a bit through. In order to complete that dirty white look I gave it a wash with black enamel paint. Small detail were painted by hand like the exhaust and red ring on the spinners. Added the decals (Shed decals and 144 Direct) afterwards and a final mat coat sealed those in place.

    Fantastic model, Thomas!

    You did a great job.

    The details on the upper side of the wings... perfect!

    A superb job you made of it too Thomas.
    I can see I have a lot of catching up to do as far as WWII is concerned.

    The upper half was actually the only thing I repainted. The bottom part I left in the original color. I only trimmed off the external fuel tanks and changed the letters fromn D to A.

    @ Rob: I'm sure you'll catch up in an instant.

    Well, these are 1/144 scale. I think the mold was a Chinese unofficial copy of the old Minicraft Me-110. When I bought these, Me-110s were virtually impossible to find in 1/144 scale. I saw these on E-Bay, the brand was MiniHobby, and the cover art was so atrocious that I almost considered not buying them. But there were no other options open to me at the time. I bought them for $5 USD each, with another $5 each for shipping. They must have come from the backwoods of deep interior China, because they took all of an entire month to arrive! I've heard of the slow boat, but come on! LOL!

    Molds: Terrible to Un-buildable
    Decales: Hideous
    Cover art: Criminal

    Not other options, so I got to work on them. Took forever, but I was able to make something playable. When I get the right decales (I had zero extra at the time), I plan on re-decaling over the german crosses. In fact, I already have one additional Me-110 I bought in the recent Minicraft re-release, and I need one more. All I want new ones for, is the decales to redo these.

    Not great, but considering the molds I had to work with, I was happy with how they turned out.

    My AIM Me-110's waited almost an year to see they're faces painted.
    I was late but true to my promise to them.



    The Me-110 may not be the best twin engine fighter, but it has a special place in my heart.

    Oh come on guys, you're spoiling me now. Great paint jobs. Thomas one of the most realistic repaints I've seen, superb. Now...do I need ME110's?
    See you on the Dark Side......

    I agree. I really admire the talent of all you who do minis. Your games must look great, and the fun it must be to reproduce specific paint schemes. Well done.

    I have yet to personalize any of my WWII aircraft. They are still in too short supply, but I suspect that my Stringbags may get the treatment.

    Nearly nine month later, Hauptmann Schneider found out that there is a personalized Bf.110 ready for action in North Africa.

    Sorry comrade, this was unfortunately ignored during the troublesome days between Prague Summer Con 2014 and Origins 2014.

    An nice gesture and this plane is in good company of Lt. Andrzej's desert Spitfire.

    I prepared another plane for the Prague Summer Con 2015.

    It's a Bf.110 G version night fighter.



    I used an original Ares Games miniature. Without getting rid of the decals I covered the plane with primer and repainted it.



    The camouflage and the decal combination was randomly choosen. So is the underside painted black. Maybe a little bit unommon for 1943 - 1944 night fighters, but you would be surprised how many Luftwaffe night fighter camouflage schemas there were.



    I didn't built antennas for the Lichtenstein Gerät like I did for my Ju88 nightfighter. I wanted a playable miniature.



    Here you can see the undetected approach of the Bf.110 G versus a British Lancaster bomber during a night raid. The pilot tries to shot down the 4-engined intruder with his Schräge Musik armament. ( I know - the base of the mini points in the wrong direction)

    That is an exceedingly tasteful camo scheme Sven, and so beautifully executed. it makes your night scheme look much better than the original night schemes of these aircraft.

    A very good and exact repaint Sven. Not only the greys are right, but the pattern is accurate.

    Hi folks,

    Without any twin-engine Soviet planes to purchase, I did up a captured Bf.110. From what I read (or rather, what Google translate reads for me) at this website -
    http://lib.rus.ec/b/205944/read
    five C variants were bought under Molotov–Ribbentrop, and several G variants were captured from Romania.

    Markings are somewhat speculative based on the low-quality photos on that website, the style of other Soviet planes from the time, and my personal taste for the late-war roundel and a match with the Yak.

    A quite historical repaint job, Paul. Well done. That is something to be considered for my EF collection. Thanks for inspiration.

    It is actually nice to see you prepared to step outside the historical in WW2. We get a lot of inspired paint jobs and decals for WWI but not so many for WW2.
