Revell Junkers Ju 88P-1 in 1/72 Scale

This is a conversion of Revell of Germany’s excellent Junkers Ju 88C-6 kit into a cannon-armed P-1 version using an Aimes conversion set.  This set consist of a vacuformed gondola, resin nose and canopy combing, brass gun barrel, and decals – a nice package.

The Ju88P-1 carried a 7.5 cm PaK 40L semi-automatic Bordkanone in a large gondola under the fuselage.  It was intended for use against ground targets and as a long-range bomber destroyer.  Forty Ju-88P were produced, but the heavy cannon affected both speed and maneuverability making the aircraft vulnerable to interception.
