Italeri 1:48 Ju87B-2 Trop, 1./StG3 S7+KH

November 12, 2012 · in Aviation · · 8 · 6.2K

Hi folks,
Well between struggling to get motivated and finding time to build, I have actually completed what I started in February. A really nice kit providing lots of opportunity for extra detailing! I spruced up the cockpit and added scratchbuilt flap actuators, internal canopy framing behind the pilot's seat, Quickboost prop/spinner and gunner magazine drums , tropical filter (from Hasegawa kit) and actuator rods on the bomb release mechanism.

The paint scheme was hand sprayed with my trusty Iwata HP-B, a real test but I think it came out ok! The base was made using various airfield sets.

  1. Brilliant camo work and nice photography!

  2. Smashing camo, a really lovely job.

  3. Nice Job. I like the way you displayed it on the base. I like it when an aircraft is displayed in natural settings. A figure would give it a good sense of scale. Great job.

  4. Beautiful work Charles!

  5. Great looking desert bird.
