COBI 5733 – Junkers JU-88 – Bomber/Heavy Fighter (Speed Build Review)

Change language to: de_DE Deutsch

COBI aircraft are not always the most stable designs. However, this is not the case with this new bomber. With some unusual construction techniques, it is very stable.

Manufacturer: COBI
Set-Number: 5733
Theme: Military
Release: 2022
Parts: 1160
Figures: 1
Age: 8
Building Time ca.: 3 Hours



First, both wings including propeller and landing gear are built in parallel. 2 layers of plates, one layer of tiles and COBI’s flat tiles with studs on the underside ensure good stability. Then it’s the fuselage’s turn, which is fitted with plenty of printed tiles. Various molded parts are used for the cockpit. Behind the pilot is the gunner’s seat, but he seems to be on vacation at the moment.

Except for the rudder, the tail is completely built. Overall, very few molded parts are used. The two wings are held on top by tiles and fixed from below by a hooked construction. This holds up surprisingly well. The conclusion is formed by 6 bombs and the type plate.


The bomber is really big and still very stable. You need enough space on the shelf or in the showcase. The price is relatively moderate and the building fun is high.
