1/48 Hasegawa Junkers Ju87G-2 STUKA
Most of you guys will be familiar with this blurb, but for the ones who aren`t this is the model of a german stuka dive bomber which has been modified to carry two 37mm cannons instead of bombs. The german fighter ace Hans Rudell flew this plane and destroyed over 500 Russian tanks. The plane was too unwieldy for aerial combat and an easy target for british fighters. The model was built to depict a `war weary` plane veteran of many missions. I don`t think it should be carrying a bomb as well as the cannons but I liked the look of it. The model was built oob and I scratchbuilt the pipework for the cannons.
