Junkers Ju 88S-3 Conversion in 1/72 Scale

Here is a Junkers Ju88S-3 of I / KG66.  This is a conversion using the Revell of Germany Ju 88A-4 kit. The engines have been changed using castings of the Jumo 213s from a Hasegawa kit.  The gondola under the nose has been deleted and the opening plated over.  Transparencies were replaced with Falcon vacuform parts.

This aircraft carries an interesting spotted camouflage on the upper surfaces and a meander “squiggle” on the lowers.  All markings were deleted except for the individual aircraft designator “B”, which is repeated on the fuselage sides and the leading edges of the wings.  There are three photographs of this aircraft taken after it came to grief in a creek which provide excellent documentation of her unusual paint job.
