As CHRIS CLIFFORD reveals, this superb reference hardback offers a detailed examination of the radar-equipped Ju 88’s nocturnal and daytime exploits.
Night-fighters as a modelling subject is wide-ranging, but arguably provides the most interesting colour schemes via Luftwaffe machines, such as the Junkers Ju 88. That very beast is the topic of Crécy’s new 224-page book, penned by Martin Streetly and Chris Goss. If you’re a diehard enthusiast of German types, the ’88 especially, you shouldn’t miss it as it offers a wealth of information, choice period photographs and quality artwork. When combined, they supply the modeller not just with huge inspiration for modelling, but also a deep understanding of the tactics involved. This makes for a richer build experience and often leads to other ideas kit-wise.
