Eduard  CX 192: Ju-88C Canopy Mask


$10.00 or so plus shipping


Hasegawa 1/72 kit


Scott Van Aken

This nice set is for the Hasegawaw 1/72 Ju-88C and could probably also be used on the G to some extent. This aircraft has but a single rear facing machine gun so while the panes may be pretty much the same for most of the canopy section, it may be different for the defensive armament.

Anyway, the Ju-88 is one of those aircraft where a canopy mask set is most useful. Some of the panes are tiny to say the least and I simply cannot see being able to hand cut tape to match them. In the past I've simply painted over them.

In addition to the canopy, there are masks for the lower gondola and for the wheels, something that is included in most mask sets. This set was not easy to find as it is many years old. One of the issues with older sets is having the masks wrinkled and that was true with this one. Hopefully that will not affect the set when used.
