The Ju88 was the most versatile German World War II aircraft in service. Several applications were: dive and high altitude bomber, night fighter, torpedo bomber against shipping, tank buster, as well as reconnaissance.

The model is made from injection molded plastic – grey in color. The plans were in book format, printed both sides. I had an issue with the landing gear assembly – the procedure could have been more definitive. Clear molded plastic windows were supplied. An extensively detailed decal sheet was also included.
Initially, I started with the cockpit buildup, pre-painting and assembling details. Next, I assembled the fuselage, tail surfaces, wings, nacelles, landing gear, and finally, the canopy glass. All went together well, with the exception of the canopy glass fit. I had to use some filler here. When assembling, care should be taken, as some of the detail parts are tiny and can be easily lost.
