    This is one of my favorite Mini-Plane models based on the details and it just looks neat. It has machine guns and bombs and many other fine details. It helps that it is a bit larger than the other models but still in a scale about the same as the fighter planes.
    As for some background to the 1/1 version it was considered the best of the German WWII bombers mostly due to its versatility. Aside from it being a medium level bomber it was a dive bomber, night fighter, heavy fighter (for taking on bombers), fighter bomber and more. The thing is though that it tended to get shot down a lot on the Western Front. It generally had four .30 caliber machine guns and was not fast by the standard of the time. In the Battle of Britain it was out gunned by the Hurricane which had eight .30 machine guns all firing forward. Later on there were fighters like the P-47 Thunderbolt which had eight .50 caliber machine guns. And the American bombers like the B25 carried up to eighteen .50caliber machine guns and were faster.
    Still once more this was a neat looking plane and model.

      Great looking bomber plane & thanx for the history, I had read that these planes were slower than the US planes but did not know the specifics

      Another nice Mini-Plane. The JU-88 is cool looking, especially the glazed nose. It was a much better aircraft/bomber than the greater produced He-111, which started as a passenger plane.

      Thank you very much Newfld. That was a short version but glad to help.

      Thank you very much Toyrebel. German planes had a steam punk look going on. I was inside an HE 111 and it was very different from a B17.
