    Hi, all,
    Are there any 'specialists' on this forum who might be able to help me with a long shot, please?

    I'm seeking to build another scale-model action scenario (family history) in which Oblt Fritz Lau's BF110 will be depicted shooting at a Halifax bomber, and after much searching of the internet, I have yet to find any indication of the correct (or nearest) aircraft/squadron markings for his aircraft, c1944. The kit that I now have for the BF110 has a decal set for NJG1 in 1945, based in Gelsenkirchen - would that likely be the same squadron/Gruppen, etc.?

    I originally posted this request back in 2014 and received a couple of replies, neither of which proved useful, unfortunately - so I'm wondering if anyone else (who might since have joined this forum) might have the information.

    It is by no means definite that Fritz Lau was indeed the culprit, but for what I'm aiming to create, near enough will have to suffice. However, if anyone can help pin things down even partly accurately, I'd be very grateful indeed!
