Hobbycraft 1/48 Ju-88- with a LOT of changes

Hi all,

I got the Hobbycraft 1/48 Ju-88 unaware of all its issues! I had the support of a lot of online modelling contacts to help me fix this sow’s ear! Spare props from a Dragon Ju-88, metal gear legs from Airwaves I can’t remember? Wheels from a Dragon kit. The engine nacelles needed to be detailed with recontoured fairings. The kit cockpit is …well…fictional, if not transposed- stuff on the left is on the right, etc. The canopy was an aftermarket part. Decals were banged together from spares. Cokpit was scratch built.

I have not been able to get a break for taking pictures, so I am struggling with low light and late night pics. Sorry for the poorish quality.
