I always thought the 410 was a good looking airplane. However it never lived up to it.


Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

Someday your life will flash in front of your eyes. Make sure it is worth watching.

Definitely. She might have been looked upon a bit more favourably if they got it right the first time and was in production in '41. Not that it would have made much difference in the grand scheme of things. Getting rid of those rearward facing guns and all the associated components might have helped speedwise as well.

As a civvie type with a clean nose and one piece type cockpit canopy i reckon she would look pretty slick. Put her on the express mail run route.

You keep improving with every new build - love the open engine bay. Really an invitation to give a diorama a try... ? wink

I read that those rear face guns in cupolas were pretty useless; difficult to aim with a reduced line of fire, prone to jamming and electrical/hydraulic malfunction.

That deficiency unfortunately not reflected as such in an an online sim (IL2) as I found to my cost last night ending a respectable kill streak smile

I don't think the 410 was in Il2 when i last played, is it available as a player plane or just ai?

Already started smile I will just do a wrap up on this current one though as it should be a fairly quick and easy build and i'm also hoping we will get some more modellers here posting their work.

All though i don't have it, as I play exclusively online the latest manifestation of IL2, 'B.A.T.' has over 2000 aircraft! Thanks to dedicated and talented modding community, the sim has moved from strength to strength and despite it's vintage is most enjoyable and immersive to this day.
My installed version is 'UP3' and it does indeed have the 210 & 410 as flyable as well as AI.

cheers cheers cheers Another superb model Ajay.


There was only 16 squadrons of RAF fighters that used 100 octane during the BoB.
The Fw190A could not fly with the outer cannon removed.
There was no Fw190A-8s flying with the JGs in 1945.

Very nice work there. Wish I had that kind of patience to make the washing the way you did. I just tend to let it stay pristine because I am afraid I'll jack it up to much and make it where I can't get it to what my mind sees what its supposed to look like.
