Junkers Ju 88A-4 B3+MH - Hasegawa 1/72.

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hello guys;

 

This is my second model of this year: Junkers Ju 88A-4 (B3+MH), Dübendorf, Switzerland, 1943.

 

You can check this aircraft: https://warbird.ch/wb-events/die-ju-88-mit-dem-schweizerkreuz/


This is a Hasegawa 1/72 mold. This old mold has a lot of fitting problems. Wing tip, fuselage closure, etc and etc. 😫


I used Mr Hobby Aqueous paints, photo etched interior by Eduard. The blue paint was Vallejo RLM 24 mixing black.

I still have issues with that blue colour scheme, but you built an excellent model. Especially the airbrushed squiggles are great.

Yes, but the Swiss described this color in reports. And the Swiss were very precise.

It's fact, but about RLM83 it is another theme.

 

Cheers.

After the blue paint applied, I did soft lines with a silver pencil.
With my Iwata HP series airbrush, I painted this lines very carefully, passing two or three times and covering totally.

It was not easy, but with calm and patience, it worked.

 

Cheers

Judging from the photos of the real thing in your link, it's all the more pity that I can only see a lot of grey rectangles with 'spacer.png'. Photos posted on Google, perhaps?

 

Many years ago, I had the privilege of visiting Porto Alegre while shooting a documentary about the indomitable José Lutzenberger. Nice town, at least at that time!

 

Kind regards,

 

Joachim

Hi Joaquin,


Yes, I posted these photos in Google Photos. If you want, I can send my photos by e-mail. Drop me a line: zarichta@gmail.com

I live in Porto Alegre and it is keeping a nice town. It is good to know that you liked to visit my city.

Keep in touch.

Out-freaking-standing Cristian!!!!!!!  A brilliant execution of paint especially given the complex nature of the scheme. :worthy:

This is a superb model and extra points from me that you dared paint it in this highly questioned scheme which (for me) from the contemporary descriptions must be correct.

Superb piece of modelling and the finish is… dramatic! A real eye opener.

 

Very impressed by your detail work, too. Those MG:s sticking out around the canopy really look the business.

 

Kind regards,

 

Joachim

Excellent build of your 88 ! :thumbsup:... Ive seen and read a bit on the blue scheme. I will keep my opinions away as I don't want to open a :worms: , and that to become the focus instead of your build. However I do like the work you’ve done here.

I'm sorry to spoil things a bit, but the rear machine gun mountings should have been glued upside down.
