About this kit:
With around 15,000 aircraft produced, the Ju 88 was the most widely built Junkers aircraft of WWII. One special variant was the Ju 88P-1, specifically designed as a dedicated tank attack aircraft, in response to requests from units on the Eastern Front.
Fitted with an impressive 75mm PaK 40 tank cannon with a large muzzle brake, the production plane required a reinforced unglazed nose. The plane was tested operationally in 1943 but proved unwieldy and vulnerable to enemy aircraft. The prototype version, known as Ju 88P V1, was fitted with a 75mm Kwk 39 anti-tank cannon and was basically a modified A-4 version.
This kit is rich in detail, complete in accuracy, and stunning in its execution. This Ju 88 kit not only busts tanks, but also breaks the mold in terms of its quality and detail!
