Description

 

Here is my 1/48 scale Junkers Ju 52 3m by Revell.

On opening the box you cannot fail to be impressed by the sheer size of this model.

Construction was straight from the box with the omission of the rather crude looking seatbelts. I filed these off and replaced with Reheat brass photo-etched belts.

As this model is a cargo variant the rear seats were left out. I opened up the side and top cargo hatches.

A Reheat gunsight was added to rear machine gun and Verlinden charts added the radio operators table. The engine is from a dragon Ta152, while the rest of the cargo is scratch built.

The aircraft was painted in Xtracolor,RLM61,62,63,and65. The aircraft was panelled with shades of the previous colours.

The white markings were sprayed on and the rest of the markings are decals.
