Not exactly  Reconnaissance and Scouting but it has a camera.




Rikets Allmänna Kartverk, (the National Public Map Office) in Sweden used three Ju86 from the Air Force between 1952 and 1957.

Nice one, Plasticsurgeon.


I hope I have better luck attaching the props to the bushes.

Although the Recce GB aircraft will now be a Roden kit, I certainly won't be throwing away my Hobbycraft kit.

One of the reasons for switching to the Roden kit for the RB-36E is that that kit includes both props with rounded tips and props with squared-off tips.

I found a picture of a retired RB-36E with props with rounded tips, so I'll be using those.


Cheers, Stefan.
