hhmmm, if you do a set of Junkers Jumo 200 series nacelles for the Revell Heinkel He 111 and the JU-88 (1/32 scale), you would be my new bff and Hero of The Big Bomber modeling Cult. Maybe even be made Exhalted Deity of the Cult. Free virtual beer forever you know.
Cheers!

another Ju 88 suggestion (this time in 1/48th):

A cockpit and new gondola (with MG-FFs) for the dragon Ju 88C-6 would be really nice. What the kit supplies is a pretty half-baked attempt (more like 1/8th baked really).

Something you might want to look into further Justin, is degassing your mold material and pressure casting your parts. Not sure if you have as yet, but it will go a long way to better molds and better casts. Took me forever to realize that. Once I got those two things down, my mold quality improved dramatically and my castings were virtually bubble/void free. Let me know if you want/need more info on it. Good luck with your casting efforts. "Q"

The Jumo nacelles for the 1/32 Ju- 88 are the key part in making a A-1 edition to the more widely used A-4 varient. Same goes for the Heinkel 1/32 kit, turning the current P-1 varient into the very popular H6(and others).
L' Arsenal has a Junkers conversion set.

Yes, there is more to the A-4 than the nacelles, but the Jumo was used on many more versions of the JU-88 than the DB powerplants. It's the same case with the Heinkel He-111.
Cheers!
