Hi!
Here are the photos of my latest work.
It`s the ICM kit,which despite having received a lot of "flack" builds up into a beautifull model.

It has several issues, mainly with the cockpit, but, after the glass work was installed, this modeller can live very well with it.
paints utilised: Vallejo Model Air e acrílicos Mig.
detailing sets: Eduard interior and exterior set

If you have interest, you can find in my blog around 90 fotos with all the building and painting process explained.

This model was part of Airfix Model World mag, December 2017 issue.

Jose Pedro,

Wonderfully built!the cockpit tube, undercarriage and subtle weathering make it stand out of the crowd.

True that the cockpit floor sit isn’t correct but that is amended with AM parts should the modeler choose, because like you say not that much stands out once the build is completed. Parabéns

Thanks for sharing, this kit is on my wish list, so I've stashed your notes for potential use later.
Builds like this are like my Everest, so it's great to be able to reference them.
Also keen to go through your blog when I have the time.

Thanks again.

Wow, beautiful build!

I've always have a strange soft spot for the 88's

Jose'
Just an overall impressive build. Your cockpit areas just comes to life with the added details, weathering, and dry brushing.

Hi José

Superb! The cockpit, in particular, looks gorgeous. I know it's always subjective, but I'd still be tempted to "weight" the tires a bit more to give a sense of the bulk of the original aircraft.

All the best

Beautifully built Ju 88, Jose! I enjoyed looking at the photos. Still have to go through your blog.

I intend to build the ICM in the Revell box also this year but in finnish markings. Camo is the same but more swastikas around ....

Hi Rowan, looking in retrospect, you´re completely right!
I´ll have that in attention on my next build!

Cheers!

Great work Jose as always. Sad to hear about the issues with the kit. Thankfully from what I understand from your blog they can be dealth with. Your work with the brush in the cockpit is an inspiration for me.
