Hi everyone,
I started to assemble this classic Revell kit:

Looking good!
I’ve always been interested to see how this kit builds. It’s been on my wish list for a while. One of my long term projects is to build a collection of aircraft involved in the Malta campaign and this would fit nicely in that. So far I only have two built, Hurricane and an MC200. Need to pull my finger out.

Good choice. I built this model few years ago:


I had some problems between fuselage and wings, so watch out of it:

I built two of them when they first came out plus one JU88c6 out of the box. Even used the Revell decals. Parts fit very well and detail was great (at least as good as the Hasegawa, but probably better). Only part to be careful with is the nose glass. Seems like one of the kits had to have about .010" to .015" spreed added to the nose. Probably something I did as the other came out perfect. I heard they came out with a JU88a1, but have never seen one in the flesh.

Cockpit completed with some imperfections … but it is the best I can do in 1/72 … :sweat_smile:

Nice work Rodolfo! I have this kit in my stash and want to build it in flight someday with a 1/72 British Curtiss Tomahawk . I’m thinking one engine feathered, gear down (in surrender mode) and some battle damage on one of the nacelles
