This is my latest build and my biggest aircraft to date.

I normally go for acrylics, but for this one I already had most of the colours in enamel which isn't my favourite medium to paint with because of the long drying times, either way I got there in the end and this is the finished result.

Some of the transfers didn't make it, the nose transfer was especially difficult to fit properly, so in the end I had to take it off because I just couldn't get it to hug round the nose properly and I ended up damaging it by moving it too often.

I'm going to have a bash at some armour next.

I do like the Bf 110, looks a nice aircraft, especially the Nightfighter variants, as I recently bought the 1/48 Eduard Bf 110G-4 Profipack. This looks to be a nice build mate, nice work

Nice work Alex. Is it the one with the Tiger/Shark mouth on the front ? that is a difficult decal to fit.

Yes it also has a hornet decal for the winter camo version, which would be a lot easier to fit but it wouldnt look right on this camo scheme.

Looks nice. But check your landing gear, I think left and right have been mixed up. I believe the wheels should point outwards.
