1/72 Eduard W. Nr. 73372?, II./JG 300, Bayreuth-Bindlach, Germany, Spring 1945.
This aircraft served with the test unit Jagdgruppe 10 . The task of JGr.10 was to test new tactics and weapons to be used against Allied four-engined heavy bombers. The aircraft could be easily identified thanks to the rendition of a red and yellow snake on both sides of the fuselage. The pictured aircraft was reassigned to II./JG 300 and received relevant identifying markings, such as the blue and white band identifying JG 300 within the Defense of the Reich system. There was also the black horizontal stripe of the II. Gruppe. This stripe partially obscured the code I1, which belonged to JGr.10. On the left side, this allowed the letter I to remain visible, and the number 1 on the right. This aircraft was dismantled and its remains found in May 1945 at Bayreuth-Bindlach, which served as a repair and conversion depot from 1944.
