    Hi

    I'm trying to build one of those Dragon Ju 188 kits.
    It's a hard thing, the fit, particularly of the wings, tips, flaps, is not so good.
    But the interior parts for the top gun turret look really bad.

    Anyone have a pic of how it should be?

    Thanks
    Regards
    I

    The upper turret on the Ju 188E was B1 Stand ('B1 position') - 13-mm MG 131 in EDL 131 Drehturm (rotating turret).

    (Btw, nose gun position was A-stand, upper rear of canopy B2, and lower gondola rear C-stand)
