    because you see that if, for circumstances such as passing, Spain under Fascism Was for some years and that ultimately led to have these devices.

    IMG_1699.JPG

    Here I started to place the piece on the side that was missing, the team radi whole'll re-do it again as I have in photos second is unlike anything that had the plane

    IMG_1701.JPG

    folding seats, it is the inner structure lacking

    IMG_1702.JPG

    the following two photos is the cockpit, the highway smoother, has nothing I have to put everything online lucky I found photos of some of the details I had, some scheme to place the ribs and beams, so even if someone have photos where you can see the inside of the cockpit and want to share I would come very well

    Sergio, I think it's fair to let you know that the judges are discussing the qualifications of your particular entry in this GB. Whereas Spain purchased 10 Ju-88's, the one you chose to build is one that was added to Spain's fleet from an interned aircraft and therefore could be deemed to be captured.

    Although Spain payment for each aircraft boarding and technicians of the companies that came with the parts. Anecdotally, Germany offered to Spain produce them under license but not acceptable for such serious problems landing gear design and chose the license heinkel he 111 h 6

    Sergio: I think you could build the plane, just change the decals to that of a purchased aircraft.
