Description

 

Here are some photos of my 1/48 scale Junkers Ju 88 G-6 from Dragon.

This machine was attached to  NJG 101. A photo of this aircraft appears in Monogram's Ar 234 Monarch book together with an Arado Ar 234.

 

 

The camouflage is the standard late Ju 88 night fighter camouflage of overall RLM 76 Light Blue with RLM 75 Grey Violet mottles, with a dense overspray in a squiggle pattern (spaghetti) of RLM 81 Brown Violet.

I used Testor's Model Masters enamels, but I substituted Testor's Camouflage Helo Drab for RLM 81.

The cockpit received extra detail. I made the canopy from clear thermoform and then added the inner tubular structure.

 

 

I also scratch built extra detail in the landing gear bays, and likewise the tail wheel bay.

 

 

The cannon barrels were made from metal tubes.

Decals were printed on my Alps MD 5000 printer.
