Stratosphere Recon by markkarvon Stratosphere Recon by markkarvon
The Junkers JU 388 Störtebeker was based on the versatile Ju 88 airframe and the Ju 188 evolution of that frame. It was intended for use in multiple roles including night fighter, bomber destroyer and reconnaissance. The Ju 388L model depicted here is the reconnaissance version. Developed late in the war, the Ju 388L was built in small numbers (about 47 machines being produced). It was undergoing extensive testing and was not yet deployed at the war's end. None the less, the JU 388 was an excellent machine with maximum boost speed of 407 MPH and a service ceiling of 44,095 feet. I have long wanted to paint this aircraft which I think is one of the best looking of its era. This artwork depicts the Ju 388L at high altitude with Me 262 jet fighter escort.

Beautiful illustration!
Go totally "Luft '46" on this, and design your own 688, or 788, or 1088, offshoot!

Thank you. I have a couple of Luft '46 machines already in mind. Hopefully I can get to them one day.

Verrry nice!
I like the planes, but I also like your use of colours, where the planes' camo fits in with the blue sky. Nice!

Very nice rendition! Never expected to see one of these being drawn by you, considering how few were built. :)

excellent work Mark
from the Ju 88 family I always liked the idea of the Ju 88-P1 with the 7,5 cm ATG

True, but there's a strange beauty about this one, and I can't quite place it.
