The Messerschmitt Bf 110 in Color Profile : 1939-1945
This in-depth work on the Messerschmitt Bf 110 variants ‘B’ through ‘G’ provides for the first time a comprehensive set of colored line drawings showing the changes as this Luftwaffe fighter evolved. For every line drawing there is an accompanying photograph and explanatory text. This work takes you through the pre-war period, the Polish campaign, the war in northern Europe and western Europe in the spring of 1940, the Battle of Britain, the Russian front, the Mediterranean theatre, Defence of the Reich, and night fighters. Lesser-known sub-variants are also featured, such as the Messerschmitt 110s used in transport glider-towing duties. A comprehensive appendix takes the reader through the changes to each sub-variant by way of cutaway drawings. The colored artwork by Fernando Estanislau is simply breathtaking, and establishes him immediately in the top ranks of aviation artists. A ‘must-have’ for the Luftwaffe enthusiast and modeller alike.
