Dear fellow Britmodellers, here's my 1/72 Hasegawa Ju-88 G-1, built from the box, with Schatton metal antennas added. The model was painted with Gunze/Mr.Hobby acrylics, weathered with artist oils. All photographs by Wolfgang Rabel. This is the latest version of Hasegawa's Ju-88 series, released earlier this year. According to my research, 4R+AK from 2/NJG2, flown by Johannes Strassner, was the only Ju-88 G-1 fitted with the experimental obliquely mounted MG151. The gun barrel comes as a metal part. The prominent exhaust stains, commonly found on G-1 aircraft, was sprayed with Gunze H95 Smoke Grey in several thin layers. Towards the end I added a drop of Black for tonal variation. The squiggle pattern on the upper surfaces were painted freehand. Brake lines are from stretched sprue. Thank your for your interest. Best greetings from Vienna!
Hello, here's my 1/72 Hasegawa Junkers Ju-88 G6 "Nachtjäger" of 6./NJG2, Fritzlar 1945. I used Eduard photo-etch, True Details resin wheels, Schatton antennas and markings from Authentic Decals. Painted with acrylics from the Gunze/Mr.Hobby range. The Hasegawa kit has some fit issues, which is strange for a modern HQ tooling. The fuselage halves need some filling and blending, the nose cap is over-sized, the wing tips and the belly insert with the guns don't fit very well either. The antennas are metal pieces from Schatton (http://www.modellbau-schatton.privat.t-online.de/). They are much finer than the kit's plastic parts. Since the antlers are a major focus point on this model I think they are well worth the investment! The colour scheme is mostly guesswork, as I've found only one conclusive period photograph online; this shows only a part of the fuselage section broken up at Fritzlar airport, Germany, May 1945. The markings come from Authentic decals, they aren't the best I've ever worked with. They break easily, have a yellow-ish carrier film and are slightly misprinted with 'shadow lines'. Luckily, this doesn't show after a couple of gloss and matt cotes. The camoflage was painted using Uhu Tac sausages: Exhaust fumes painted with Gunze/Mr.Hobby "Smoke" with drops of Black and Dark Brown added: Delicate work on the undercarriage, adding brake lines and scissor links: "Schräge Musik" ("Jazz Music") guns on the fuselage spine: All photographs by Wolfgang Rabel, IGM Cars & Bikes. Thanks for your interest. Greetings from Vienna!
