When a new Ju 88 kit comes out my ears prick up. Like many others I waited with bated breath for ICM’s 1/48 Ju 88 A-5 - being the first A-5 in 1/48 to appear from a mainstream manufacturer. When I picked one up here is what I found, read on using text beside the photos... but to skip to the conclusion - it builds lovely, the plastic is a joy to work with and issues mentioned can be overcome. Please see my Resin page for correction set and decals page for a wider choice of options than in kit -and/ or perhaps a little more accurate
