FirstLook

 

AIMS of the United Kingdon has released a 1/72 scale Junkers Ju 88G-6 as part of its range of multi-media models.

It is assumed that a multi-media kit like this will be bought and built by a very experienced modeller and therefore no effort has been made to put the instructions into any specific order or sequence. However, everything is there, including pointing out moulding errors that need to be fixed. All the major parts are moulded in very clean resin and the smaller bits are in white metal.

Also in this kit, you will find Eduard etched fret, No 72-122 for the old AMT Ju-88G with the complete instructions plus an AIMS decal set No 72-001 for five Ju-88G night-fighters in various colour schemes and units also with their complete instructions. These decals are as good as any I have seen.

 

 

Two very clear vac-formed canopies are supplied also.

 

 

In summing up, let me say again, this kit is not for the novice or even the average builder, but for some one who really knows his or her stuff and he or she will be able to produce a competition winner from this kit.

Highly recommended to those few.
