ICM Junkers 88A-4


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone

 

Next of the production line is this 1/48th Ju 88 from ICM, a great kit with fine panel lines which just required a bit of rivet detailing to add a bit of extra interest.  

 I did add an Eduard photo etch cockpit set, resin wheels and engine oil coolers. Painted with MRP lacquers and weathered with Abteilung oils.

 

Thanks for looking

Really superb build and finish

 

Canopy masking is super crisp

 

Totally agree with GRK's comment above

 

The spinners are a real highlight and add an aesthetic "pop" of interest

Fantastic, so neat and tidy. I always wonder how people paint circular lines on spinners so neatly, how do you mask this? 

Thanks GRK

 

It wasn't easy to be honest and took a couple of attempts to get right.

I painted the whole spinner white first then used Tamiya 2mm tape (there is a joint line which was handy for positioning) and then sprayed the two shades of green either side.

I couldn't have done it without an Eduard canopy mask set... a must for these Luftwaffe bombers with greenhouses for canopies.

 

Many thanks to everyone for your kind comments.
