Junkers Ju.188A-2 'Racher' (03855) 1:48 Revell The Ju.188 has a long and confusing development as a proposed improvement to the Ju.88, which was becoming less effective against the evolving Allied fighters as time marched on. It began life as the Ju.88B-0, but it wasn’t a major improvement, so languished in limbo because the expected Ju.288 was expected to far-outstrip it - once it was operational.

As usual with Eduard's Photo-Etch (PE) and Mask sets, they arrive in a flat resealable package, with a white backing card protecting the contents and the ins
TopDrawings 78 Junkers Ju.88C (9788366148444) Kagero Publishing via Casemate UK The Ju-88 was designed as a schnellbomber in the mid-30s, and at the time it was faster than current fighter designs, so it was predicted that it could infiltrate, bomb and escape without being intercepted. That was the theory anyway. By the time WWII began in the west, fighters had caught up with the previously untouchable speed of the 88, and it needed escorting to protect it from its Merlin equipped opponents. It turned out to be a jack of all trades however, and was as competent
