  1. Ok here´s an older pic of the core of my MTO the Third project. Never mind the "A-1" and "Battle of Britain" on the boxtops, these will become other variants and from the Mediterranean . I have these three A-1 and one A-4 kit. To convert the A-1:s to latter variants, Revell Gmbh was happy to sell me (very cheap, by the way) three sets of sprues C and D (if I recall correctly) from the A-4 kit that contain parts for the longer wing tips etc. In my spares box I have all the Zerstörer/Nachtjäger parts left over from converting a Revell C-6 kit to an A-4 a few years ago (
  2. Here's my ICM Ju 88C-6b in 1:48. The decals on this kit are of the ones that stick at first contact with the surface. I lost three of the main decals and had to improvise.
  3. Hello guys, here's my next project, ICM's Ju 88C-6b. I hope it fits well. I'll be painting it as Heinrich Prizn zu Sayn Wittgenstein's machine.
  4. Hello guys. As the title explains, are ICM's decals of the sticky nature? I don't want to find out that after having my model all gloss coated, only to find out the decals stick firmly to the surface as soon as they are placed. TIA!
  5. Decided to start a side project, apart from Airfix's 1:48 Bf 109E. This photo is from earlier today. And this one is from today's evening. The camouflage has been outlined with a pencil. I had glue remaining just for the left engine cowling, I'll buy more tomorrow, if I can.
  6. Hi, Does anyone have pictures och the Italeri Junkers Ju 88 038 "Torpedobomber" kit? Wonder if the ventral fuselage hatch is a lose part or if is moulded with the fuselage? I have an Ju 88 G7 kit made with parts from the Ju 188. But still have solve how to make the ventral hatch. Cheers / André
  7. Recently I "recovered" my DML Ju88C bought over 15 years. It's kit No. 5540#, based on Shanghai Dragon 5536# C-6 version, with a new nose and radar antenna added. Another difference is the dorsal (is it a proper name?) gun position, or B-stand. 5536 has 2 MG17s same as A-4 version: 5540 has a single gun replicated this photo: It seems that the latter one only appeared on Nacht Jagers, so can we speculate that C "Zerstroyer" usually converted from bomber version, so remained the gun layout...... although not so crisp,
  8. "Wittgenstein here, clear off!" Second nightfighter in my collection, and probably the last one I make in 1:72, installing those antennas was a nightmare. Some pieces also didn´t fit, others were too long, the instructions tell you to install the exhausts without mentioning you won´t be able to fit the flame dampers if you do so, the rudder pedals supporters won't let you fit the nose unless you trim them, etc... Pay close attention, if you build this kit, when making the antenna array: the support struts are of different lengths, something Revell misses to point out.
  9. Hi Everyone, I picked up an ICM Ju 88 A-5 at the weekend and without wanting to sound overly negative I thought I would share some thoughts upon opening the box aimed at those who want to make it OTB. I have naturally started making some correction parts and I am currently checking to see if my masters for my Dragon Ju 88 A-4 to a-1 conversion can be used for the ICM kit. First up the early B- Stand clear part - ICM have a straight frame in between the two weapons instead of triangular bracing like Falcon have it on their Vacform designed for the Dragon kits. As for the windows in the back o
  10. Hello everyone. Here is my Italeri Junkers Ju 88A-4 built OOB back in 2002. The decals came from an Inscale sheet on Finnish Ju 88s. It represents JK-254, "3", 1/LeLv44, of the Finnish Air Force, Finland, in June 1944. The main scheme was painted with airbrush using Tamiya paints. According to the decal's instructions, the RLM70/71 greens were reversed. I built this kit before I knew what RLM71 really looked like so the shade used isn't correct. Thanks for looking and all comments are welcome. Miguel
  11. These three models were built when I was younger (15-17 I think), then they were thrown into the garbage because a shelf fell above them and broke them, without a repair chance. The Fw 190A-8 was specially fragile because I had swapped, once glued, its early style wheels for the late ones of Hasegawa´s newly tooled Fw 190A-5. Revell´s 1:32 Junkers Ju 88A-1. At this time I wasn´t too sure how to sand the paint ridges, so the aircraft was decaled over them. I used Scale Aircraft Conversion´s metal landing gear for this one. Hasegawa´s old tool 1:32 Focke Wul
  12. Having been mainly interested in the A-4 variant so far I was very happy with the Revell 1:72 kit. Lately I raised an interest in earlier A-5 and D-2 variants. I thought Zvezda would cater me with their A-5/A-17 kit - that I have yet to see and handle the plastic - good enough. Taking a closer look at many interesting subjects from the Mediterranean and North Africa I noticed the earlier Linsenlafette instead of the later Bodenlafette 39 variants. I haven´t been able to find out in the Zvezda kit reviews if the Linsenlafette in included or not? If not, is it available from cottage industry?
  13. Hi all, Kit manufacture: Revell Scale: 1/72 Type: Junkers JU 88A-4 Extras used: OOB except brass rod pitot and EZ line antenna Paints and colours used: Vallejo RLM colours (older type). Weathered with Flory Grime, and oil paints. All sealed with Aqua Gloss and flattened with Xtracylix matt varnish. I finished this one a little while ago but have only just got round to photographer her.A good kit this with generally good fit, but a couple of challenging areas. The wingtips being one of them... Beautiful surface detail though, and a wonderfully detailed coc
  14. Hi, Of the many versions already relesead by ICM of the Ju 88 in 1:48, which is the most accurate? If I remember well, the first version had issues like too long undercarriage legs and too basic nacelle engines. Best,
  15. Hello Chaps, Since completing my Monogram Pro-Modeler 1/48 scale Heinkel He 111H-22 and enjoying every minute of the build, along with the end result, I wanted to do another German Bomber, either the Ju 88 or the Do17. Very kindly, one of my YouTube viewers sent me this kit- the Revell Pro-Modeler 1/32 Junkers Ju 88A-1 Bomber, for which I was extremely grateful! So, without further ado, let's get onto the introduction: The kit comes in a sturdy two piece lid and base box with a 24 page black and white instruction booklet, a decal sheet that offers two sets of markings- one for G
  16. Dear Fellow Modellers, Finally I'm starting my thread on this much anticipated GB. I'm building Revell's 1/72 A-4 version and will be using Quickboost's resin exhausts and Eduard's BIGED PE and mask set. I'll be building scheme A, as shown in the box, for an aircraft based in Sicily, Italy, June 1941: As usual, here are pictures of the sprues. The clear parts are good, very transparent, without defects: The plastic is beautifully detailed, neither too soft nor too hard: This is the decal sheet, which looks good: I'll have to use swastikas from an xtradecal sheet. There's
  17. So far I'm only certain of the kit I'll build, The Revell newish A-4, and the standard RLM 65/70/71 splinter camo. I'm still hesitating should I build a straight OOB A-4 for KG 30, add nose MG-FF for one, convert it to an A-4 torp for III/KG 26 or make a D-1 for 1.(F)/22... All from Luftflotte 5 in Northern Norway, late summer of 1942. Decisions, decisions! V-P EDIT: will post progress of building two kits in just one thread, it´s so much easier, regarding how much these kits have in common. EDIt 2: A-4 torp is already on its way and the MG-FF will be added to otherwise Plain Jane A-4
  18. Hello Chaps, It's been a long haul build- 8 weeks in total, but that is because my wife and I are actively involved with contractors working on our new home that we will be moving to in mid-April....sorting out kitchen design, wood flooring, carpeting, tiles for kitchen and bathrooms, shower designs, paint colors for every room, new faucets for all sinks, choosing granite countertops and sinks for kitchen and bathrooms, new light fixtures and door handles etc etc....I hope this is the last time we have to move now, moving is a stressful and tiring event! Anyway, enough of the waffle and lets
  19. Another one, much more easier to prepare in model
  20. Hello! So after some time I show you my JU 88 G6 from Dragon/Cyber Hobby- Orange Box in 1/48. Pretty old kit and because of the many re-edtions the moulding suffered from that. The construction was a real challenge. I've tried to avoid filler. So dry fitting is a "must do". I have replaced all MG 151 with brass rods. The FUGs are from Mastermodel. Another challenge, because I tried the solder them. In the end it wasn't that hard, as I've thought. I made a template that helped me a lot.The rear antenna holder is also a brass construction soldered togehter. I've rescribed the fuel hatches on
  21. Hi, here is a build of mine, from the past. Not from my stoneage but quite old, done in the 2000-2002 time frame. If you build the Italeri offering of this well known type, you can do what ever you want, it won t look like a Ju 88 build from the box. That kit was probably the first time, that i noticed, a bad looking kit is not only my fault. While the wave pattern, sprayed free hand on,was quite good, i decided to make some changes, to bring it more to the real thing. -the nose cone got some strokes with a sanding stick -The props were shortened to achieve the look of the massive wooden pro
  22. Another tribute to all who were fighting over Great Britain. This time I'm presenting Ju 88 A-4 crashed at Blackbrook. Whole story You can find here: http://www.dorkingmuseum.org.uk/the-blackbrook-bomber/ Thanks to Mr Nick my profile of Ju 88 is at Dorking Museum.
