JU 88 C2 Night Fighter







Here are some images plus a composite of Hobbycraft's 1/48 scale Junkers JU 88 C2 Night Fighter. From Wikipedia "The first night fighter version of the Ju 88 was the C-2, based on the A-1 and armed with one 20 mm MG FF cannon and three 7.92 mm (.312 in) MG 17 machine guns placed in a new metal nose. These examples entered service in Zerstörerstaffel of KG 30 and the unit was renamed II./NJG 1 in July 1940.

The 1/48 scale are very exigent and the finished could have more weathering, but I know the kit and is very clean. You make a good work other time.

Oh I don't know Pablo I think the weathering's fine the way it is. I feel that certain aircraft shouldn't have too much weathering and the JU 88 C2 is one of them.

Don't think about it, I like and the plane is very big to me, is not the same in 1/72. Some day I post my Do17 of Hobbycraft in 1/48.

I am probably missing something that is right in front of me, but where do you keep all these models? Especially, so you don't accidentally break them because they are gorgeous.

Actually Jump Raven I keep them in a bedroom with the door closed. I posted some pictures of the room titled "Here are some images of..." in June. http://thegreatcanadianmodelbuilderswebpage.blogspot.com/2010/06/here-are-some-images-of.html and no matter how careful I am I still manage to break parts off of my models.I am constantly repairing them.

I looked at those pictures and I also did a search on the site. Where's the ship in a bottle? Or tank in a bottle? Or am I really as blind as I think I am.

Actually I have never built a ship or anything else in a bottle. One day I might give it a go.
