This promodler kit is not what I expected, the fit is not very good, the pannel lined on the fuselage does not line up either, had to sand then down and re scribe.

Cockpit detail however is actually good out the box, I just added the standard yellow electrical harnass.
Since the detail will be somewhat obscured through the glass I used seatbelt decals for simplicity.

Can you post a picture of the box art please? I have two 1/48 Ju-88's so I'm interested to compare kits.

This kit has some very odd engineering making an easy neat build hard, some filling and sanding required that will need re-scribing.
The wingtips are seperate and one is to fat, the other to thin

Here are the major components sofar. Excuse the poor cell pic

This is really not a nice fitting kit :-(
The wingroot gaps needed filling with sprue and cement to re-enforce the poor joint.
I also managed to have some glue wick onto one of the canopy halves. I really hate these split canpoies.
