Additional informations

Second prototype of the Ju 388, built in Merseburg from components taken from the Ju 188 series production prior to the completion of Ju 388 V1 to V6. Equipped with multiple sensors and measuring equipment, this aircraft first served the Junkers company for flight trials in the spring of 1944, until it was transferred to Rechlin, where it was mainly used for engine flight trials. In contrast to other Ju 388's of the L-0 series, the V8 featured both the bomb bay beneath the fuselage and at least a mock-up of the remote-controlled gun turret. The aircraft was painted with RLM 70/71/65.

  1978 I was born in Vienna and I am working as technical employee in an architect's office. I am building plastic models since I am 12. It started with a F-16 Fighting Falcon in 1/32, which was followed by a few cars and trucks. A Heinkel He111 H-6 in 1/72 brood my interest for the German Luftwaffe. Since 2001 I am creating color profiles also.

Some of them have been already published in relevant magazines and books. The motto for building models and drawing profiles is the same: Learning by Doing. To practise my passion it is required to collect the necessary documentation, an expensive, but interesting hobby, especially when I can obtain rare second hand aviation antiquars.
