AIRFIX / Messerschmitt Bf110C/D - 1:72 (A03080A)

Championed by Hermann Goering, the Messerschmitt Bf 110 Destroyer, (or Heavy Fighter) concept was certainly sound in theory, giving these slightly larger aircraft much greater range and devastating firepower. Unfortunately, the increase in size and weight left the Destroyers vulnerable to the more manoeuvrable single engined fighters of the RAF.During the late 1930s, it would be difficult to argue against the idea of basically putting two Messerschmitt Bf 109 fighters together to produce one heavy fighter, or 'Destroyer'. With greater range and much increased firepower, these fearsome aircraft would surely blast any opponents from the sky and quickly allow German ground forces to conquer even greater amounts of territory. This was the perfectly rational thinking behind the Destroyer concept and one which Luftwaffe Commander-in-Chief Hermann Goering was passionately in favour of.As the Luftwaffe swept through Europe and into France and the Low Countries, the Bf 110 Destroyers proved to be incredibly successful
