Revell's 1/32 scale Junkers Ju 88 A-1 is a fantastic kit, but surprisingly the initial release only offers blank dials on its instrument panel. No decal instruments are included.

AIMS Decals has addressed this shortcoming with a set of 1/32 scale cockpit decals for the Junkers Ju 88. This release includes not only the individual dials for the instrument panel, but also the dials for the side console instruments, radio face markings and more.

 

 

The decals are printed perfectly on a small sheet, while instructions comprise white line drawings on black paper - quite fetching actually!

I was a little concerned that dozens of small individual markings might be hard to keep track in preparation, and difficult to align in application. As it turns out, I have already applied the decals to my Ju 88 cockpit and the task was quite straightforward thanks to the logical layout of the decal sheet and the large instruction sheet.

 

 

After applying the decals, I "glazed" the lenses with a drop of Micro Krystal Kleer applied with the end of a toothpick to each dial.

If you have a Revell 1/32 scale Junkers Ju 88 A-1, this small and inexpensive decal sheet will make a big difference to the already excellent cockpit.

Thanks to AIMS for the samples
