BF 110G-2/R3 2N+EM, II/ZG 76, Hobby Master HA1801


BF 110G-2/R3 2N+EM, II/ZG 76 (Second Formation), Defense of Reich by Hobby Master HA1801 in 1/72 scale die cast. The BF-110 "G" version was the late version of this late WWII long range German fighter. This plane is a Bf-110G2/R3, R3 "Rustsatze" is a field modification. This model replaces the usual armament of four 7.9mm machine guns with two Rheinmetall Mk.108 30mm cannons. This along with the "G" standard replacement of the 20mm cannon with two MG 151/20 20mm cannons made this a plane to be reckoned with. In October 1943 ZG 76, II Gruppe was formed as part of the Defense of the Reich. Germany's war industries were now the target of large formations of Allied bombers. During the raids the bombers were without fighter cover and easy prey for the 240mm rocket armed Zerstorers (Destroyers). March 16, 1944 ZG 76 Bf-110G-2s knocked down 18 B-17s but during their third pass Allied P-51s arrived and decimated the group downing 60%. By June 1944 the Bf-110Gs were traded for Bf-109s and the Gruppe became II/JG 76.
