    The ju 188 used Jumo 213 s were as the ju 88 a-4/ c-6 used Jumo 211 s the engine cowlings and radiators are different. I think only the hasegawa g-6 has both the BMW s and the Jumo engines, we're as the g-1 has only the BMW s. Nick

    Hi, On the aims Web sight he has a review of each kit and how a accurate each kit is. My vote goes for the new revell ju 88s, if you won't a BMW engined ju 88 you can use the sets aims had out for the amt kits. Thay need modified for the revell kit thou. I used them to build a ju 88 s-1 & a g-6 last year. The photos should still be on ready for inspection. Nick

    Hi all, I've had a couple of oh dear!!! moment with this build when fitting the exhausts I managed to push one of the location blocks of the inside if the fusalarge. The easiest way I could see of fettling it was to remove the front bulkhead and fitting the exhaust to the block and fitting it from the inside. Which I think would have been easier than from the outside. 2nd ops moment I split the upper joint when I removed the bulkhead. Resulting in resanding and respraying the nose The exhausts are now fitted also the main undercarriage, and I've put the lenses onto the Gun sight using the coloured clear plastic card as shown at the start of this build Thanks for looking & comments are welcomed.
