I love the JU88, but the Me410 was also a good fighter, both planes wer close in size and armament... Which do you prefer?. I just completed the R/M promodeler Me410 heavy fighter, now on to the promodeler JU88A-4, both great kits!

I like both also, but the JU-88 gets my nod, it just looks better IMHO

The Me 410 was a purpose built fighter (a Bf 110 replacment), the Ju 88 was a converted fighter. Add to this the fact that the Me 410 was a newer design and you have an aircraft that is a better fighter than the Ju 88. It was faster, smaller, more manouverable and had better armament. As a fighter, give me the Me 410 any day.
