1/48 Dragon Junkers Ju-188A2

July 6, 2014 · in Aviation · · 19 · 5.2K

This is the Junkers JU-188A2 with the markings of 3E HK from II KG/6. This Ju-188 was found abandoned at Melsbroek in Belgium (1944).

Cockpit components painted to RLM 66 and modified by CMK seats.

The upper fuselage and right wing have patches of RLM76 interrupted by RLM66, whereas the left wing has the standard RLM 70/71 splinter scheme. It's possible that the left wing was replaced from another aircraft except for the flaps.

Painting was done Gunze Sangyo and acrylics.

Other modifications are:

• Quickboost spinner and propellers

• True details wheel set

• Resicast lens for landing light.

• Decals are from AMS JU-188 collection 48D006

Happy Modelling.

  1. Wonderful build and finish, TU.
    The cats in the paint shop were clearly far into their schnapps when they decided to do the splinter work on that wing. Doubt if Hitler laughed.

  2. Another one that lives up to your high standards Tolga. Great work on the canopies. Did you use decals or masks for the markings?

  3. High fives all around Tolga...great looking model and wonderful photos.

  12. Few people can get away with photographing in the harsh direct light of the sun. But, Tolga your modeling skills and that "Blue" background seem to lend themselves to showing all of your gifts and talents with that direct light from the great out doors.

    Two thumbs up
