Classic Kit: Revell 1/72 Junkers JU88A No. H-113 1967
This is an old build of one of my favorite models from Revell. It was issued in 1967 and Revell took it's measurements off the real aircraft at the USAF Museum. That is why it can also be built as a D version since the one the USAF has is a D model. Maybe that explains why the A version does not have dive brakes.
It is molded in a light blue. The clear parts are thick but they fit. Decals are good for the time and snuggle down nicely. On my model I found a sheet with a JU88 with yellow cowls. They could have been ESCI but I don't remember. It is painted with Testors, Gunze, and Tamiya paints. I did rescribe this model which was not hard to do. I used tiny strips of decal film painted in the correct colors for the canopy and nose framing. It worked.
So here is my version of Revell Ju88 given a proper paint job compared to my first try at 10 years of age. Then only the tires and props were painted gloss black with silver landing gear. It didn't need to nose cone either on it's diving attacks on ants.
