The Ju 88 was really the workhorse of the Luftwaffe. In the role of night-fighter he was very efficient and became the mount of many aces. The model was done some time ago and I did spend a lot of time on the wings where not a single panel line is correct and where not a single hatch is of the correct shape and in the right position!

The camo is of the reverse mottling type with large blotches and shows the plane on Major Paul Zorner Gruppenkommandeur of II/NJG 100, late 44.

Very nice

 

What are the antennas like to fit - I assume you solder them together and then superglue them to the frame?

 

Cheers

No soldering Pete, super glue and accelerator!

Great model and the JU-88 night-fighters always look so sinister. I built the ICM 1/48 Ju-88 C6b last year and loved every minute of it and it is a much better kit than the now ancient DML one. Get one and you will enjoy it and like you, I used the 'Master' metal antenna set on mine and they elevate the model to another level as yours have.

 

Love the camo and the figures which add a nice sense of scale.

 

Lovely model !

Looks great! My favourite Nachtjäger. What's the blotch on the roof?

According to Aero Detail 20, its a FuG350 Naxos Z search radar antenna

I heard Dragon Ju88 series is not easy to work with. You apparently did a great job here. The camouflage color is also superb!

Nanond

Many thanks, and yes the old Dragon kit was a putty monster!
