Greetings Peter,
This is an Airfix Ju88A-4 1/72 scale. Thank you for your compliment, the fit wasn't very good. Used a lot of green putty. Port side wing looks like a Stuka wing upside down, and tail looks like it has a twist. Now that I'm mentioning it i should shoot a few pics and post. 2018 has been an Airfix year, kind of challenging. Three Airfix kits completed.
Cheers

Greetings and a happy new year to you
Well, I can imagine the challenge of these old Airfix kits as I remember my schooldays when I was starting modelling with a lot of Airfix kits...
But nonetheless you did a great job and there's always the satisfaction later, when you've mastered the problems and look at your finished model on the shelf
So I'm very pleased I have this kit from Zvezda on my bench. Encountered no real problems yet, fitting is very good so far. Dry-fitting of the wings showed no upcoming gaps, so I decided to paint the undersides already, because it will be simplier to paint these "Spaghetti" camouflage lines before mating to the fuselage.
Cheers Peter

@M.Douglas - It seems we chose the same plane
What scale is yours? It looks definitely well built

Alexander: Thank You very much for Your tip. I tried this one on my Corsair built in the Jolly Rogers campaign and it worked really nice!

Jose: Sorry for the flat coat disaster. Try Alexanders remedy to rescue Your work!

Well, November is not the lucky month for my models.
After applying the matt varnish, the model was destroyed ....... I applied the matt varnish of Humbrol and it remained so ..... I started another He-111 in another campaign.

Do not panic Jose.Try use Gunze paint remover(http://www.mr-hobby.com/en/itemDetail.php?iId=162)or simple isopropyl alcohol(https://www.amazon.com/Swan-Isopropyl-Alcohol-99-Pint/dp/B001B5JT8C?th=1) both very effective remove any acryl or enamel paints but not damage plastic(clear parts too) - good luck

Great work everyone! (And sorry, Jose. That really sucks when something like that happens.)

I can't seem to get a bomber project off the ground and, with only two months left, doubt I'll be able to. Things may change, but in the meantime I'm highly impressed by what I see here!

Exelent job,nothing wrong.My great respekt to you.
PS.For exhaust pipes better use dry pigmets(rust) over black paint(looking more realistic).One more time - BEST MODEL.

Congrats on finishing Your bird. I like the chipping very much. My tests with hair spray did not worked very well. maybe I will give it a try with Your method!

TADAAAAA.Complete.Few words - first one Hasegawa kit- perfect,no need an extra job(sanding,filling gap and etc),very good small part detailing.panel line - thin and accurate.So only few days for complete models.Second - I'm use new weathering techiniques for me.Vallejo medium chipping - easy for use.But one big minus - too hard control size of chips.In final model looking too beat-up.Mmmm Ok it's last days war,JAAF not have supply anymore.
Thank's to all for comment.

And finally done:


Two more pictures are in gallery.

It's twin engined bomber, but quite large which made photographing more challenging than usually. Anyway fun build and got chance to try canopy with pre-painted frames: the kit came with those and normal clear parts.

Thanks for the campaign.
