1/48 Special Hobby – Junkers Ju 88 D-2/4 [Kit No. SH48178]

Introduction


The Ju-88 was designed as a schnellbomber in the mid 30s, and at the time it was faster than current fighter designs, so it was projected that it could infiltrate, bomb and exfiltrate without being intercepted.  That was the theory anyway.  By the time WWII began in the west, fighters had caught up with the previously untouchable speed of the 88, and it needed escorting to protect it from its Merlin equipped opponents.  It turned out to be a jack of all trades however, and was as competent as a night fighter, dive bomber or doing reconnaissance as it was bombing Britain.  They even popped a big gun on the nose and sent it against tanks and bombers, with variable success. The D mode was developed for Long-range photo-reconnaissance with the 4 being tropicalised version of the 2.

1/32 FLY – Arado Ar 234 B-2/B-2N

It stemmed from an RLM requirement for a Schnellbomber that could out-pace the Allied air force to bomb specific targets at will. In practice however, it was mostly used as a Reconnaissance aircraft, with only limited quantities available that the Germans didn’t want to fall into enemy hands.
