    Hello everyone!

    I have just bought Illiad's new 1/48 scale decals, which contain the markings for Schnaufer's Bf110E night fighter G9 + LN

    I actually intend to use them on a Bf110C as some years ago, and I cannot rememberfrom where - except it was a Japanese web site, i saw the same markings for a Bf110C identified as being Schnaufer's.

    Can anyone heklp me to confirm - or otherwise - I can use these markings on a Bf110c nighfoghter.

    Thanks and regards,

    I haven't found any pic of Schnaufer's kite so far. But I found these two profiles via the net. Both profiles present the Bf 110C G9+LN, 5./NJG 1, St Trond, Summer 1942.

    Good morning (in UK) Wurger!

    Thank you VERY much for your help and quick reply.

    I did not waste my 'cash' thank G*d or 'The Boss' (i.e. the wife) would have been on my case.

    Warm regards,

    weinace:p

    Yep, that's his 'G', or one of them. I think I have a pic purporting to be his 'C'. Problem is, the book is on a very low shelf, and I'm too stiff to bend to reach it at the moment!

    Hello Mate,

    Glad I helped a little bit.

    Concerning these pics above... The first one ...It is Schnaufer's Bf110G when he was the Staffelkapitän of 12./NJG at St. Trond in February 1944.The pic was taken after he had scored his 47 victory.
    The second pic shows Schnaufer's Bf 110G Schleswig, Germany. 19 June 1945 - believing in our fine member FalkeEins' blog...
