AIMS from the UK has added a new accessory to its growing range of items for Revell's new 1/32 scale Junkers Ju 88 A-1:

Ju 88 Dinghy Compartment

This is a simple conversion with just a single part in cream coloured resin. The compartment is cast with the stowed dinghy in place.

A choice of either the small or longer versions are offered. I have the long version for review.

The single page of instructions includes illustrations of where to cut the hatch on the top of the Revell kit fuselage for both the small version (for the A-1/A-1F/C-2) and the longer variant (A-5/A-5F/C-4 and D-1 onward). These were subtly different, so take note of the variant you are building before ordering.

Once the hatch is cut out, installation will be a breeze. The casting block can stay in place as it will not interfere with fit inside the fuselage.

Casting quality is good (and it will look better under a coat of paint), but both sidewalls of my sample were damaged in transit. Repair should not be difficult though. I will probably cut both sidewalls off and replace them with sheet plastic.

AIMS' 1/32 scale Dinghy Compartment will be an easy way to add yet more personality to Revell's big Ju 88.

Thanks to AIMS for the samples
