And the most obvious, to my mind, set of variants isn't even mentioned.  It's a fact that the German DB605-powered Spitfire used the BF110 cowling because the contours at the firewall were very close.  Why not, then, transplant a pair of Spitfire engine and cowling installations on to a Bf110.  Exact mark of Spitfire used would depend on when the conversion was done, as well as in whose service it was done.  I could see Spanish-built Bf110 variants with either late-model Merlins or Griffons; for a bit more outre variation, Griffons with contra-props.

If the Dragon and Eduard kits were not so time consuming of a build, I'd build one with extra-early cowlings and fully spatted mains similar to what the Stuka first had.   Each seating position would have a 3 pane windscreen but the rest would be open cockpit.
Twin blade props.
And in Spanish Civil War markings.

We know about the Bf-109TL proposal:



But what about an equivalent Bf-110TL proposal with the pistons replaced by jets?

Perhaps with two jet engines in each nacelle with the installation designed so that the main gear can retract between the exhausts?  You could either keep it a tail-dragger or look at a tricycle-gear installation.  My own thoughts are to keep it a tail-dragger.

Bf 110 wind-tunnel model based on a 109


110 with shortened nose ala Me 210


Rear-fuselage mounted aft facing MG 17


Sight for same


Experimental remote-controlled gun installation


Close-up of same


A proposal to add one or two jets to the belly of a 410, why not use the same basic concept for a 110?

It has a definite look to it, though the engine installations look a bit too streamlined.  Perhaps something similar to the engine installation on the early Bf109?

Or maybe similar to the He-51?

Still good though.
