Pete Readman - I have been making plastic kits since I was six. These days it's mostly Fleet Air Arm in 1/72nd scale, although from time to time I model almost anything. As well as being a member of West Middlesex Scale Model Club, I am also branch secretary of IPMS Farnborough Model Club. In real life I am a director of a telecoms company.

Messerschmitt Bf110E
Messerschmitt Bf110E "The Belle of Berlin", Cyber Hobby, 1/32nd scale.

This aircraft was captured by British forces in Iraq in 1941, and returned to flying condition. It was used as a recognition training aid and hack in Egypt, and later written off after a forced landing in Sudan. The model is the 1/32nd scale Cyber Hobby kit with Quickboost exhausts, armament removed and minor detail improvements. The paint scheme is a best guess, based on available evidence. Paints are Xtracrylix and decals are from the spares box.
