    Model Type: Junkers Ju 88C-6
    Addons: None. Just scratchbuilding.

    This is my first GB and I will be doing a weathered F1+XM Based in Taganrog,Ukraine 1942. I use a hairbrush so it will not be so good of a finish but any accidents only add to the effect on this one(considering the real paintwork done with a mop!) I'd like to thank all those who gave me the references so that I may have an accurate model! I also would like to become a better modeller so throw all your constructive criticism,tips,ideas,etc at me! :D

    Thanks guys! I have spare pilots I want to put in this one (the cockpit is quite barren in this kit) but I can't find any Luftwaffe pilot reference for winter uniforms. Anybody have some reference or information about this? Also I won't start the kit until the 14th because I don't have my Tamiya liquid cement so it's a no go until then.

    The German winter flying suit was of dark blue grey colour with a fur collar usually.

    Thanks Wurger and imalko! Luckily I have already painted the grey on them so now I just need to paint the details on them.

    Cool build... the Ju88's are intimidating because of the extensive cockpit glazing and framing!

    Unfortunately I have lost my MicroSD card for my Camera so all my progress pictures are gone (I'm already more than 75% done) so I will just leave the GB because it just kinda defeats the purpose to do a build and leave out way too many pics. Also I have no connector port on my camera because, Uh I actually don't know why... but it stinks to have this happen. Well I'll just wait and see what else I can build and also just in cause you ask I did alot of the build on the first day and afterwards we went out to look at Display Houses and that's where I lost it (I think?) Sorry guys!

    That really sucks Sam. I have a 1/72 Ju-87 at home. I don't know why I do as I am strictly 1/48. I get home on Wednesday, I'll make sure everything is there and pop it off to you. I think I still have your address in the PM you sent me.

    I agree Crimea and Fubar I'm looking at the HobbyBoss 1/72 Junkers Ju 87G-1 with these two marking options Ju87G-1,10 (pz)/SG 1, Dubno, Ukraine, June 1944
    Ju87G-1,10 (pz)/SG 3, Jakobstadt,Lithuania,July 1944 and I was wondering if one or both are suitable for the build? If that fails than I'll accept your Stuka (which might I ask who makes it?)

    I'm not really sure what make it is Sam, Airfix I think. As I mentioned earlier, I won't get out of camp until Wednesday morning but as soon as I get in, I'll check to make sure everything is there and ship it out. Wrong scale for me so it's yours.

    Those aircraft would seem to fit the build.

    Well luckily my brother's phone has a camera so I got two pictures of the current status of the model and Fubar, only send the Stuka if the shipping is not too bad. I'll have to send you a model one day (1/48 of course!) DSC01934.JPG DSC01935.JPG
