Limited Edition of 1000 Models Worldwide
Introduced in early 1942, the Ju 88C-6 was the fighter version of the A-4 bomber. 257 C-6s were produced for the Luftwaffe during the remainder of that year. The C-6 was used in both day and night fighter roles. It served on all fronts with many being issued to bomber units to form special Zerstörer Squadrons, where they flew daylight bomber escort and ground attack missions. The C-6 nose armament of three MG17 machine guns, one MG151 cannon or one MG-FFM cannon soon taught allied pilots that different tactics had to be employed when attacking these heavy fighters. In a bid to trick Soviet fighter pilots into continuing their time tested strategy of head on attacks, 4.Zerstörerstaffel/KG 76 painted false 'bomber noses' on their C-6's during the winter of 1942-43. F1+XM served with this unit from the end of 1942 based at Taganrog in the Ukraine.Realistic panel lines

First flown on December 21 1936, the Ju 88 entered operational service in 1939. It was used successfully as a fighter-bomber, dive bomber torpedo bomber, heavy fighter, night fighter, reconnaissance aircraft and even as a flying bomb during the closing stages of the war. The Ju 88 was produced until 1945, with more than 16,000 built in dozens of variants.
