Sergey Kosachev has released a set of excellent resin replacement parts for ICM's recent Ju 88A-5 as part of his highly regarded Vector range.

Hm, judging by the small amount of parts, I guess ICMs Ju-88 must be preaty accurate then ? Thanks for the review!

It's better then the Dragon's one, but have its own issues. The most noticeable shape issue is a crossections of the tail part of the fuselage.
ICM:



The real thing:




I'm going to correct this issue too.

Wow Thanks for sharing the pictures Sergey, those are realy interesting. I think I see a slight difference in the cross-section as You mentioned, but to be honest I dont think its that big of an issue, its hardy noticeable. On the other hand I dont realy prefer to combine parts of fuselage from plastic and resin. On thing is to have a resin detail set. But I dont think that fuselage parts on bigger planes should be combined from plastic and resin since especially weight supporting parts have the tendency to break in the joint.
