Hi Guys,

It has been a long time since I have posted here, or even done much modelling. But with all this extra time that many of us have found ourselves with I have come back to the hobby.

I really want to make a Ju 88 in 1:72 scale with some after market support. What is the best kit out there at the moment?

Thanks,
Philip.

The Ju 88 has been kitted many times in 1/72. In my opinion, the best ones are from Italeri, Hasegawa, Zvezda and Revell Germany.

The new Revell ones look very nice. The A4 appears to have benefitted from the work done on its excellent 1/32 Ju88s.

They also seem to be available rather more cheaply than the Hasegawa ones, which I recall have some issues with MLG location/angle.

The new Revell kit (Cat. No 04672) in my opinion is the best. You can improve the model using Eduard PE sets with interior and exterior parts.

This is mine:

Thanks for you input everyone, I think I will give the Revell kit a go. Your example looks fantastic Andrzej.

Thanks for the help.
