    Being that I've tried to get my dirty mittens one of them Dragon 1/48 Ju 188E-1's (A-1's) for some time, I was wondering, who flew them and where were they based, want to turn it into a recon version if possible, think that some were based at Kirkenes with Aufkl. Gr.22, or something...

    Hopefully they'll be reissued (Revell, are you reading?)....

    A little something to wet your whistle as I search, first for the books and then the info.

    You might want to have a drink or two until I get back.....

    Geo

    From some quick reading, the D-1 was a converted A-1 with the bomb aimer and forward gun removed and additional fuel cells. A brief recon has found no photos.

    I still find the Ju 88 story fascinating. If you think about it, the Mosquito did not exist and nor did the P51 when the Ju 88 entered service. A machine that could drop a substantial bonbload, then dogfight it's way home. The A26 could achieve this, but that wasn't until near the end of WW2. They (the Hierachy) never did get a true 4 engine bomber into service though, did they...thankfully.
