    A Ju 88 G - 6 at Grove, Denmark 1945.

    As far as I know, no G - 6's in Norway, no point as Bomber Command would never route raids into Germany that far North.

    The G - 6 was used in the last Luftwaffe long range intruder mission of WWII, "Unternehmen Gisela."

    7./KG30 based at Trondheim-Vaernes...Bardufoss, is that correct Guttorm?

    Also, can you get detailing sets to turn this Revell A-1 into an A-4?

    Ju 88A-14,

    This version was an improvment on Ju 88A-4, and featured increased armor, balloon cable cutters in the wings leading edges, and sometimes additional 1x20 mm MG FF forward firing cannon in the forward part of the undernose gondola for antishipping purposes...
