1:144 Scale Metal Diecast - Junkers Ju 88A-4 -- 1./LG 1, Luftwaffe, El Alamein, Egypt, 1941 – Length: 4" Wingspan: 5.5”
This model has the landing gear in the extended (out) position. A display stand with information about the particular model is included.
No assembly or painting needed. The model already looks like in the photos.
Propellers need to be put in place but no glue is needed.
This is really a "no-play" model or a "display-only" model. It is mostly metal and very heavy. It also has a number of antennas which look great but are very fragile. If you have small kids that like to play with your models, save yourself some frustration (and money) and wait till later to get a model like this one. The box is labeled as not suitable for children under 15.
This is not a toy, this is a collector's display model recommended for 15 and older.
The Junkers Ju 88 is a German World War II Luftwaffe twin-engined multirole combat aircraft. Junkers Aircraft and Motor Works (JFM) designed the plane in the mid-1930s as a so-called Schnellbomber ("fast bomber") that would be too fast for fighters of its era to intercept. It suffered from technical problems during its development and early operational periods but became one of the most versatile combat aircraft of the war. Like a number of other Luftwaffe bombers, it served as a bomber, dive bomber, night fighter, torpedo bomber, reconnaissance aircraft, heavy fighter and at the end of the war, as a flying bomb.
