Junkers Ju-52 Revell Germany 1/48

To discuss future builds, build planning for the future, time travel, etc. Our meeting next week was well attended.

Junkers Ju-52 Revell Germany 1/48

She is a big girl!

Length: 39.3 cm or 15.4 inches
Wingspan: 61.5 cm or 24.2 inches

170 parts on 4 large sprues and one clear

Nice crisp detail with two schemes presented. One the standard splinter scheme and one with desert camo, which seems to be applied over the splinter camo.

For some ungodly and unknown reason guess which one has piqued my interest? Anyone? I'll wait.....

Almost like puzzle pieces. Looks to be a rather hard edge, too. Now, you folks that have built the Ju-52 before, how do you get the masking to settle into the corregated wings and fuselage?

Of course, there is a good old dark green.

It looks like the tan was applied after the normal German green splint camo. You gotta do that one!

I agree. But, how! I may try to use the Silhouette software to trace this and work from that. I do like this one.

I think that would be the best way to do it.
