Revell 1/32 Ju-88 A-1, Norway, 1940
February 8, 2017 in Aviation
The airframe depicted has been raised from a lake in Jonsvatnet, Norway in 2004 where it sank through the ice in 1940. Even though it was a relatively new airframe built in 1940, it already had a new wing and had been recoded on the fuselage sides for Erg.KGr 4.
It appeared that the undersides were in the process of being repainted in RLM65(?) over the original Pale Grey finish, which was an unknown colour in 2004.
I found some pics in my files of the actual airframe being recovered back in 2004 – interesting colour reference & also how some repainting appeared to have been done with a brush!
There used to be good links to pics of the recovery & restoration but these seem to be dead now – Have a look at the net for further references if you find them.
