It looks like almost ready (and once again this work is impressive) and although the Bf-110 wasn't competitive with single engined fighters in daylight AtA combat from late 1940 onwards, I think we're going to have fun with what is still one of the best-looking planes of WWII ! /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

What a pity there's no allied twin engined heavy fighter /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif (the P-38 is a light single seat fighter, even if it has two engines) as an opponent to the Zerstorer, I would really have liked to have the Pe-3 or, if that's really not possible, a Beaufighter (also a really cool aircraft).

I heard that someone was modelling a Pe-2 (or Pe-3 ?), does anyone has more info about it ?

You call the p-38 "LIGHT"?????
That thing had 7 tons!!!!(6700kg-the prototype, XP-38)
More then a loaded(with bombs) Blenheim!!!
BTW, about the blenheim, I think there were some nightfighter variants of it.

A 'good' landing is one from which you can walk away. A 'great'
landing is one after which they can use the plane again<center>

I meant it was a competitor of the Me-109, Fw-190, La-5FN, P-47,...and not one of planes like the Mosquito, the Beaufighter, the Ju-88C or the Bf-110 which are what are usually called "heavy fighters" (which more or less corresponds to the concepts of "Intruder" or "Zerstorer", a long range twin engined fighter with a crew of two or three and a heavy armament designed to seek and destroy ennemy aircraft and tagets of opportunity).

There IS a Beaufighter in the works. Can't remember if a cockpit is being made,though....

Maybe it wasn't a competetive day fighter, but it was probably the most successful nightfighter of the war.
