Masking the glazing of the new Revell 1/72 Ju 88 A-4 is a daunting task. Eduard has come to the rescue with this mask set for not only the windows; there are masks for all the wheels as well.

..yep, I can confirm that it is! I put my Revell Ju 88 on the 'shelf of doom' way back in December when I got to the masking canopies stage. Picked it up again recently..and ended up spending a full day's session masking the clear parts with Tamiya tape..

..glazing masked.. oh well, saved myself 10 euros I guess ! Having said that, I wasn't sure whether to fit all the cockpit armament and assemble and mask or mask/paint off the sprues and then assemble ?? I have gone for the latter option...

Wow Neil your Ju 88 is looking cool, particularly the masking job. How was the build?
All the best.

..Hi Tim,

sorry for the rather slow reply but thanks for the comments..I'd describe this kit/build as 'tricky' (aren't they all nowadays?) - lots of very small parts, some 13 build stages just for the cockpit.. getting there slowly though!
