For the instrment glass I used Johnson klear this wold also help to glue the panels tog

  3. There is a slight issue with the ju 88 g list at the link above.d5 + ax is listed twice at w.nr 620028 and also if you scroll down w.nr 621586. With the same infomation .so you'll pay your money and make your choice as my granddad would say.
  4. Hi Werdna, the comouflage is based on pictures of other aircraft of the same w.nr. block.i agree about the report it also said the raf covered it up too.(www.key.aero. last luftwaffe crash in the uk)I think i googled hptm Derher and losses of njg.3 to find out more infomation about the crash and aircraft. there is an artical in the yorkshire post about the crash.D5+ax was reported to be turning to attack a vehicle on the outer track of the airfield which he miss took as an aircraft when they hit the tree. The w.nr 621586 is given on the luftwaffe losses.co website. These should come up if you
  5. I built this aircraft in 2017. I used the revell 1/72 c-6 and converted it. It was reported the crew survived the crash (clipping a tree) and were killed by members of the French aircrew from Evington airfield. The codes were d5 + AX. I went for the w. Nr 621586. Sn2 radar airials, tail warning airial and belly gun pack. The post should still be still in the rfi section. Nick

And finally I have filled the mg 131 ejection ports on the centre part of the wings using filler which was covered with liquid plastic ready to be sanded smooth. Thank you for looking comments and feed back are welcomed. Nick
