About this creation


From EB:

I’d like to share my latest creation: the Junkers Ju 88. It’s a Luftwaffe airplane that had many roles. According to wikipedia it was used as a: Dive bomber/Tactical bomber/Night fighter/Torpedo bomber/Heavy fighter - phew!

The idea for making this plane in Lego came to me after recently re-reading Roald Dahl’s autobiography Going Solo. There’s a great chapter where he encounters six Ju 88s in his Hurricane. I sure wouldn’t want to encounter one (especially not with a Hurricane): three pairs of eyes per plane plus front and rear gunners.

I decided it’d be nice to try and build it using only parts from the IJ set 7198 Fighter Plane attack. It was fun to try and make something with a limited palette. This sort of dictated a building a “Lego Ju-88” rather than a “Ju 88 made using Lego.” Does this make any sense? The main flaw it that it seats only two people: A pilot and a front gunner – perhaps I’ll try to rebuild this again in the future with Indy’s dad controlling the rear machineguns.

There are plenty more images in higher resolution in my brickshelf folder where I may upload an Ldraw model if anyone is interested and I’m able to get my head around using Ldraw!

Thanks for looking, one more ‘chopped image, over and out!
