Junkers Ju 88 Luftwaffe bomber and nightfighter

Here's a model I've been working on recently. It's the German Junkers Ju 88 multi-purpose combat aircraft of WW2.

Firstly the Ju 88 A-4 bomber:

Next the Ju 88 C-6 nightfighter:

Work-in-progress profile illustration of the first one:

These models were started out as a quick conversion of an old model from 2004 of a Ju 88 T-1, but in the end it became a near complete rebuilt, with not a single vertex remaining in its original place!
Here a before-after that clearly demonstrates this:

I like those. One day models like that will be the only evidence left. One of my friends makes CG models of old British cars as a hobby, some of the cars extinct now and the modelling has to be done all from reference photos and drawings.

One question about your night fighter render. What are the metal rods sticking out in front of the pilots cockpit? They look like they might hinder his vision, flying at night in the dark and all.
I like to learn.

I think its 1940's radar.

The model looks really great. What do you plan to do next with it?
