    Hi there,
    This is a painting I'm about half way through. Its "Nine-O'Nine" of the 91st BG, on a mission. If anyone has some wartime photos so that I can check a few details, I'd appreciate it. Cheers,

    Steve

    Thanks guys. I was actually thinking 109s, lesof. I originally thought 110s, but the model is too late to have encountered them. 410s would also be good, on their single pass.

    Cheers,

    Steve

    ah sorry friend but Bf 110G-2's ripped up the 15th AF and 8th AF into the summer of 1944. II./ZG 1 comes to mind as well as III./ZG 26 which never had Me 410A's or B's like the I. and II. gruppes until the transfer out of it's pilots to single seat Geschwaders.

    a comment: I think your chin turret is a tad wee large

    Thanks for that - I'll reconsider 110s. Chin's fine for size, but the fifties may be a touch far apart.

    Cheers,

    Steve
