Junkers Ju 88H-4 Führungsmaschine Conversion in 1/72 Scale

The Führungsmaschine was a Luftwaffe long-range maritime reconnaissance aircraft which was ordered into production during the last months of the war but was never built.  Conceptually it was based on the Mistel composite aircraft, but in this case the Fw 190A-8 parasite fighter was intended to separate to defend the parent aircraft.

The model is a conversion using the Revell of Germany Junkers Ju 88A-4 kit, lengthened by inserting plugs fore and aft of the wing to lengthen the fuselage.  The fighter is the Hasegawa Focke-Wulf Fw 190A-7 with the dopplereiter over-wing fuel tanks.
