    All I have found so far on this particular bird. Any other references out there?
    Will be asking some questions for sure.
    Cheers,
    David.

    Out of interest can anyone clarify the unit this aircraft belonged to? Kit says ZG.2 above profile says III/1.ZG? Or same plane different time period?

    ZG 1 were the main users of the Me 210. I can find only one reference to a ZG 2 machine in the Petrick and Stocker book Werknummer list. The unit code should be 2N + ?? if so, not BN. There's plenty of photos of ZG 1 machines being used in Tunisia.

    Whoops! Edited to say I must read posts properly before I reply!

    BN + CO is the factory Stamkenzeichen, the radio codes for this aircraft supplied direct from the manufacturer, it has yet to have these painted over and the unit codes applied, which would be 2N+?? if a ZG 1 aircraft.

    I can check the Stkz tomorrow for you - I need to sleep now!

    Stealing Paul's thunder:

    BN+CO is the Stkz for Augsburg-built Me 210A-1 W.Nr.2102290. It was in fact delvered to III/ZG 1 whose code is 2N.

    Nice project David!

    Got the same kit myself in the cupboard, so will watch this with interest. (Btw, got a spare canopy if you need one, I'm using a Falcon vacform for mine)

    Thanks Evan. I have been known to bugger up the odd canopy - fingers crossed with this one. Having to glue it together will be interesting.

    Cannot get canopy to square up right. Not sure what I am doing wrong. Have a vac form replacement on backorder at the LHS.

    David.
