This is a very nice Photo Etch set for the ICM JU 88A-4 Kit. This set adds a lot of extra detail to the interior of the kit, plus additional exterior parts as a bonus.

The photo etch parts are for the:

  • Cockpit side panels
  • Instrument panel, pedals, radio equipment and various control details,
  • AMMO Magazine boxes, Bullet belts, stowage bins, and Bomb sight,
  • Machine guns handles, sights and mounts

In the Packet is;

  • 1 x Photo Etch sheet
  • 1 x Colored Photo Etch sheet
  • 1 x Clear plastic printer sheet
  • 1x Instruction sheet

Summary

This is a super detailed Photo etch set. It is a must for the JU-88 Kit as it makes the cockpit really pop out on the kit as you see a lot through the large canopy area. The cockpit and seat parts are extremely detailed. I must point out a few things to be careful of. The bullet belts are tricky as they need to connect to the Guns and the magazine boxes when you close up the various canopies and this is not easy! Also I highly recommend marking up the instruction of the kit when the PE needs to be installed so you do not miss any.

Thanks go to Eduard for providing this set to review and IPMS USA for allowing me to review it for them.
