Finishing the Revell 1:72 new tool Junkers Ju 88 (4)
...er, well not quite, but having got stuck back into this one- thanks in part to seeing some of the great A-4 schemes on John McIllmurray's new Ju 88 'Experten' and 'Bomber' decal sheets - I've definitely got on top of it now. Masking the glazing, including gondola and landing light must have taken the best part of a full days modelling session. And now I read over on aeroscale.co.uk that Eduard have released a masking set for those modellers unable to face the 'daunting task' of masking this kit - oh well, saved myself 10 euros I guess ! Having said that, I wasn't sure whether to fit all the cockpit armament and assemble and mask or mask/paint off the sprues and then assemble ?? I have gone for the latter option...So there is still quite a way to go and its still a tricky little build requiring a certain amount of filler and 'glue and glaze' in those gaps....
