    This is a big piece, even compared to medium bombers on your table. I don’t think the head-on photo Pico uses does it justice; it looks better from the top.

    great detail and service from PICO is incredibly good

    The one-piece casting, without undercarriage that needs to be glued, makes this very easy to use. It also avoids the unsightly holes in the wings that some other 1/600 Ju-52s have to accommodated the plugs of the undercarriage inside and through the wings. The fuselage is very smooth also, in comparison to other 1/600 Ju-52s, which looks very nice and paints up well. As ever, a bit smaller than other makers’ Ju-52s.

    Very nice piece and excellent service. I’ll be back for more.

    Series 3 is a one piece aircraft. I got the older two piece aircraft and compared them. Both same size, the flash on the series 3 is a bit hard to clean up. Since the flash is on the wings. The two piece JU-52 was easier to clean up.
