Default JU-88 crash

Was flying so well...and then the pilot got distracted by a second car crossing end of the airfield, apparently without permission. Stalled and went in with a big balsa explosion.

Yeah. That's what he said. The second car had not been given the OK to drive through.

Too tight turn ... too low it looked to me ... she dropped a wing ... but I wasn't there so ...

Super Scale ? Cmon ... that's a bit of I think .. semi scale at best.

First give away is the fuselage itself ... they are not square boxes .. and actually do have a curved top-deck.



Nice model - shame about the crash ...

Never knew the Ju88 was a full on aerobatics machine though ...
