“LET’S GET WET!” GROUP BUILD IS NOW ON. JAN 1, 2023 - July 1, 2023 ×

Revell 1/32 ju-88 a1j


Recommended Posts

Finished this back in June, it was my entry in a WW2 bomber group build on another forum.

Had this kit in the stash since it was released and really wanted to build it but at that time I was still learning and lacked the skill and confidence to try.

 

I had a love hate thing going on throughout the build ( I can't explain what it was but I struggled to finish it) and right near the end of completion I managed to drop the fuselage like the pelican I am and dislodged the canopy, nose glazing, gondola and a few parts from the cockpit. My first thought was to stamp on it, but I counted to ten and with the encouragement of the other members of the forum I stuck it back together. The repairs aren't perfect but I'm glad I didn't bin it, but my lasting memory of this will be the sight of it hitting the floor lol.

 

I used an Eduard interior etch set and a couple of aftermarket swastikas and it was finished with a Tamiya gunze combo for the paint work.

Never let emotion have the final say (I know, easier said than done).

If you hadn't told that story, no one would have ever known.

Turned out great. I like the landing light, small details can make the difference

for me. Nice work all around Pete :thumbsup2:

Well, it do look nice and I for one can't see the joins! Really great job. I'm about to make a start on the ju88A-4 recently acquired for a very favourable price, just waiting for seatbelts. If it looks anything like yours (without dive bombing the floor!) I shall be very happy. I have had a bit of a soft spot for 88s since I built Airfix's 1/72 offering in the sixties.
