Eventually,I think. I don't know the current progress on the cockpit though...

Yes. Jippo is in advanced state of completing the project, although I do not know exactly where he stands at this point. Flyable Ju 88A-4 & Ju 88A-4 "Field mod" with forward firing movable MF FF 20mm just above the gondola as per used by the Finnish are in the making. He has also started on a Ju 88C-6a day Zerstorer, although I expect the Zerstorer to appear as AI at first.

I did ask for a flyable Ju 88A-17 torpedo bomber from Jippo, and he said that he would look at making some other versions of the Junker fighter/bomber available. By his statements, it sounds like he is/will be working on night fighters (Ju 88C-6b & G series) on a priority basis as soon as someone has figured a way to integrate night fighting techniques using radars/radar operators into FB.

I think he is currently at his summer residence, and may have limited time/internet access to get the cockpit completed for the foreseable future, as I have not seen him post on this forum in quite a while for updates on the flyable Ju 88. All I can say is that his work is second to none!

jippo's doing it. look at the development updates on the main page. Lot's of screenies of the cockpit for the bomber version. I think he wants to make a Ju88A12 as far as I remember or was it A13??? i don't really remember something like that 12,13,14,...

2 things we need in FB:

The Ju-88 probably has the most complex cockpit to model of all aircraft in FB, and the work Jippo has done on it is fantastic.


Search the development updates section.
