Hobby Master 1:72 Air Power Series Diecast Model

Messerschmitt Bf 110 E S9+AM, 4. Staffel, ZG 1, Luftwaffe, Winter 1941/42

1:72 Scale.  Length: 6.75".  Wingspan: 8.9"



After taking part in the Battle of France, Zerstorergeschwader 1 (Destroyer Wing 1) had the unit name changed to Nachjagdeschwader 1 (Night Fighter Wing 1). Technically there was no ZG 1 active from June 1940 until January of 1942. On January 4, 1942, the Zerstorergeschwader was reformed and the Messerschmitt Bf-110 provided support for German forces as they advanced eastward into the Soviet Union. On March 1, 1942, Bf-110 S9+AM flown by Georg Schanz and Hermann Muller failed to return from a combat mission.

The Messerschmitt Bf110 was a German twin-engine heavy fighter used by the Luftwaffe during World War II. Later in the war it was developed into a formidable night-fighter aircraft. First flown on May 12, 1936, the Bf 110 entered service in 1937. It was used with considerable success in early campaigns against Poland, Denmark, Norway and France. Being a relatively large aircraft it lacked the agility of single-engine fighters such as the British Spitfire and Hurricane. This flaw was exposed during the Battle of Britain when some Bf 110-equipped units were withdrawn from combat after very heavy losses and redeployed as night fighters, a role that the aircraft was well suited for. It had a successful period following the Battle of Britain as an air superiority fighter in other theatres. During campaigns in the Balkans, Northern Africa and on the Eastern Front, the Bf 110 rendered valuable ground support to the German Army as a fighter-bomber.


Hobby Master offers a wide selection of quality, pre-assembled, diecast model airplanes. Each model is crafted to a high level of accuracy using specifications of the original aircraft. They are constructed with precision-made diecast metal and some plastic components.
