48″ Ju-88 Deluxe Kit

Category: Tags: , ,


The JU-88 was an iconic German plane of WWII, a medium-size high-performance bomber which was used as a bomber, night-fighter, dive bomber, torpedo bomber, reconnaissance aircraft, heavy fighter, and even as a flying bomb. More than 15,000 were built in dozens of variants. The Rabid Models version is the A4.

This a “DELUXE” kit meant for the experienced modeler.  This kit costs more because it includes highly detailed laser-etched “panel lines” on the wings and cowlings, and we also added a very special detailed cockpit and nose.  The laser-cut balsa parts are included with the kit, to construct them they need to be glued onto a piece of flat clear plastic (not included with the kit). Then in addition we have an optional $5 cowl detailing kit available, with formed PVC plastic cowls and radiator detail pieces to produce the iconic look of this plane as you see in these photos. It takes extra time and work to build, but isn’t particularly difficult if you are already an experienced modeler.

The kit includes the foam parts needed to build this model, along with a fully detailed construction manual and some accessories such as carbon fiber and the pull-pull control system.  The model is not assembled or painted, so the customer needs to supply glue, paint, and other hobby tools, servos, motors, and electronics in order to put it together. This model is designed for two 1300kv/1oz size brushless motors and 3-bladed 9×7 propellers (not included but available separately).

The spinners you see in the picture are available for the model separately, these are custom-made 3D-printed spinners that also fit our UHU model. This next picture shows the assembled model without the special cowls.
