Messerschmitt BF 110 C Instrument Panel
Here are some images of Eduard's 1/4 scale Messerschmitt BF 110 C instrument panel.
Every once in a while a model kit comes along that all model builders must build. This is one of them.
The model's detail is incredible and when placed in a shadow box makes a wonderful display piece worthy of any wall.
The instructions call for the instrument base to be painted an RLM 66 grey but I decided to paint mine an RLM o2 grey as I felt that it would bring out the contrast of the instrument dials and switches more. Besides I think some instrument panels may have been RLM 02 grey anyway. But I wouldn't attest to it.
I also felt that my addition of a photo of a WWII babe to the panel would be a nice touch.
