This is a twin pack that includes the Bf-110 and the Spitfire. For both models, the cockpits are glued shut and don't include pilot figures. Landing gears are modeled in the retracted position. Display stands are included.

 

These are really "no-play" models or a "display-only" models. They are mostly metal and very heavy. They have a number of antennas which look great but are very fragile. If you have small kids that like to play with your models, save yourself some frustration (and money) and wait till later to get a model like this one. The box is labeled as not suitable for children under 14.

 

These models come in a Styrofoam package.

 

The package measures 12 inches by 10 inches by 3inches.

 

The Messerschmitt Bf 110, often (erroneously) called Me 110,[2] was a twin-engine heavy fighter(Zerstörer—German for "Destroyer") and fighter-bomber (Jagdbomber or Jabo) developed in Nazi Germany in the 1930s and used by the Luftwaffe and others during World War II. Hermann Göringwas a proponent of the Bf 110. It was armed with two MG FF 20 mm cannons, four 7.92 mm (.312 in)MG 17 machine guns, and one 7.92 mm (.312 in) MG 15 machine gun or twin-barrel MG 81Z for defence. Development work on an improved type to replace the Bf 110, the Messerschmitt Me 210began before the war started, but its teething troubles from its aerodynamics resulted in the Bf 110 soldiering on until the end of the war in various roles, alongside its replacements, the Me 210 and the significantly improved Me 410 Hornisse.

The Supermarine Spitfire is a British single-seat fighter aircraft that was used by the Royal Air Force and many other Allied countries before, during and after the Second World War. The Spitfire was built in many variants, using several wing configurations, and was produced in greater numbers than any other British aircraft. It was also the only British fighter to be in continuous production throughout the war. The Spitfire continues to be popular among enthusiasts, with approximately 53 Spitfires being airworthy, while many more are static exhibits in aviation museums throughout the world.
