Chris,
Well, you're ahead of me already. I hope to start on the Ju-88 sometime soon, but that'll be hit or miss with track season in full swing and my 8 1/2 month old going bonkers daily. I am for sure doing the bomber version when I do it.

As for the clear canopy, I've been toying with the idea of using either ink jet transparency film and gluing it to the paper frame. I could do that using Testors clear plastic cement, or I just found some clear canopy film at the hobby store that you make a mold of the canopy and then heat the plastic and put over the mold. The only problem with that is it's $10, and my modeling budget is considerably cramped at the moment.

I've rambled enough. Good luck on the Ju-88. I want some pics!!! :lol:

Great colours on that one. I"ll have to put it on my own "short" list for builds.

And let me add that I appreciate your posting pictures of your builds here. Please continue!

The 88 is looking great so far. I'd love to see how it turns out.

Thank you Tim :). Some more progress:-

I removed the nose glazing after this was taken and redid it in paper, as, being thinner, it blends into the rest of the fuselage much better.
Image

I had to redo the upper cockpit glazing in paper too, as otherwise I would never have been able to get it and the windscreen to fit together!
Image

How these are designed I'll never know, but I'm pleased with how it all turned out :D.
Image

I did the best I could with this but I'm not 100% satisfied with it. I think I've positioned it slightly off too, but it was the best I could do to get a nice tight fit.
Image

Now it's on to the wings!

Nice job with the nose glazing, very neat and clean, no messy glue areas. Keep it up.

Good job. Cockpit glazing is always tricky for me as well. I would never have thought of using plain paper! I'll file that tip away for future use. Thank-you

Yippee!!!! Looks great Chris :D This has now jumped ahead of the F-4 when I start building. The glazing looks good. Smart move on the regular paper. I will try that route if I'm not crazy enough to try the clear canopy :twisted:

Thanks :). Definitely gear down, unless I encounter major problems that call for a change of plan!
