Eduard  72 070: Ju-88




Italeri 1/72 kit


Scott Van Aken

Italeri was the first company to produce a full line of Ju-88 bombers, predating the Hasegawa offerings by quite a few years. These kits are still fairly nice but it is obvious that they are not recent toolings. AIMS in the UK developed a full line of upgrade resin bits for them and Eduard also provided detail sets. This is one of their early photo etch sets that covers both the interior and exterior of the aircraft.

The interior consists of instrument panels (acetate instruments not shown), rudder pedals, various other panels to spruce things up on the inside. No belts, though as other Eduard sets deal with that. The rest deals with the outside and includes new engine faces, dive brakes, oleo scissors, cowl flaps, gun signts, antennas and some other small bits and pieces.

The set comes with full placement instructions. There is enough detail to satisfy most and if you only want to use the most obvious bits, that works as well.
