I know this plane is going to be flyable soon... at least I hope so. The one in this weeks BoB update has a nice look to it.

What I would like to see is the finished cockpit and other interior screens for the FB version (or the BoB version) - My name is Heywoood and I am a simmer with a problem. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/35.gif

Here you go Heywooood. Falkster has an excellent site regarding the FB Ju-88 and Ju-88s in general. I'm been following the 88 for some time and I think it'll be a blast to fly. Jippo,Dietger,Hammerd&Co. have really done her justice. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

This bird was a real engineering marvel for its day..like so many other German machines.

I just love twins, not to mention planes that were amazingly versatile. The Mosquito, B-25, and Ju-88 all fit the bill in my book. However it seems the Ju-88 really goes beyond the call.

Now that's a magnificent Ju-88! Wow, I've always liked hammerd's skins but this one is over the top. All the best, LongHorn

A medium-twin that could dive bomb like a Stuka among all of its other capabilities.

And that beautiful front office...sweet.

Longhorn - that is what I'm talking about- no I had not seen that before... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif


Now - if someone would come up with a good 1/32 or 1/24 scale kit of the Ju88 I would be very happy, be sure http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Be sure to check the forums. There are other pics there. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

The Ju-88 was a nightfighter, a dive bomber, a torpedo bomber, a level bomber, a ground attack plane, a recon plane, a heavy fighter, and...and... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/35.gif

It was versatile but not very good. The decision to make it capable of dive bombing increased the weight and cut down the payload for almost no gain.

One set of figures I have gives the Ju-88A4's unloaded weight as 9,880 kg and maximum payload as 2,210 kg. Compare this to a Lancaster I, which had an unloaded weight of 16,772 kg and a payload of 10,000 kg, or a Mosquito XVI at 6,640 kg and 1,820 kg, respectively.

The Ju-88 had a weight equal to 60% of the Lancaster, but only 22% of the payload. It weighed almost 50% more than the Mossie, but could deliver only 20% more bombload.

The Ju-88 is a sexy aircraft, but it was a real porker http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif.

RocketDog.

I can`t wait to get my hands on it.
Seems like the fat old 111 will be forgotten as soon as this Monster of an Airplane gets flyable. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/heart.gif

As I understand it, they were mainly used for hosing down enemy troops. Against a formation or group of soldiers, the effects of the mass spray of 8mm bullets could be devastating. They weren't called "watering cans" for nothing. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/blink.gif

Rocketdog, I realize the 88 isn't uber, but it's versatility continues to amaze me. The Ju-88S(one of the best looking of the 88s,IMO) was capable of around 600km/h at 8000m. I don't think the term "porker" can uniformly be applied to the 88 in general. There were often major differences between the varients. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Thats a completely irrelevant comparison Rocketdog. Lancaster was a heavy bomber, the Ju88 a multirole a/c. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/93.gif

Also it depends what versions of the Ju88 vs Lancaster you compare. Ju 88 entered service 1939, the Lancaster 1941/1942. Lancaster was produced in different versions 7,378 aircraft, the Ju 88 almost 15 000.

And as for FB; its a twin, several versions and it looks really good. What more do you want?
