I was lost for a while, a lot of complications this year, I'm catching up. Impressive work Pablo, I love how they look at your little airfield.

Iraqi Ju-90B-1?

In any event, it is very well done in your tiny scale.

Thank you Don,

This is a recolor and a reduction to 1/400 of the Schreiber-Bogen-Vorlages in 1/100 (Ju-90V3 D-AURE) with a slight modification of the rudder.
By now you know that I like obscure topics. It depicts one of the planes used by the Fliegerführer Irak, or Flyer Command Iraq. It very likely made a stop in route to Baghdad at Palmyra. There is very limited information about the plane, but a few photographs showing that the rudders had the fin flash only in the exterior. The wing’s markings are an informed guess.
The plane is more likely a Ju-90A-1 since it has the earlier rudder and not the later oval. In any case less than 20 were constructed. They could carry 40 passengers.
More to come, I need to install the propellers and the landing gear.
Happy modeling,

Ps, and thank you for your service!

If you think you are confused about the look of the Ju-90, so did the gunners of the RAF and RAAF.

Ready to go to its final destination.

Here it is the Ju-90 with a simple landing gear and propellers. It was a relatively simple construction, complicated only by me since I did not mount the bulkheads on the fuselage nor the aerodynamic profiles in the wings. At this scale the thickness of the paper matters a lot.

Very early in the operations of the Fliegerführer Irak many of the allocated transports returned to Greece to participate in the invasion of Crete. At this time, I do not know which transports made it back to the Axis dominated air space.

It wasn’t very clear to me how significant was the Anglo-Iraqi War. But one thing is for sure, the Iraqi oil literally was able to fuel the Allied efforts during the war.

Thank you CaptJ and Carlos.
I have in mind a Potez for the next one, but I just do not know when.
Looking forward to your models!
