Junkers Ju-87G2 Kanonenvogel

January 7, 2013 · in Aviation · · 6 · 2.7K

Here is my recently finished model : Junkers Ju-87G2 Kannonvogel from Hasegawa in 1/32 scale. Model built almost straight from box with exception of Eduard seat belt details and canopy maskings. When I decided to built "something diffrent" I found impressive camouflage artwork of this aircraft flown by Fw. Josef Blümel from 10.(Pz)/ SG.3 in 1944 at Riga (Latvia).

Model completed as traditional sequences but I spent many hours to apply free hand airbrush winter camouflage . Code letters also painted by masking.

I hope you like it. Happy modelling.

  1. Ouch my eyes hurt looking and trying to follow the squiggles. Painting them free hand and keeping them separate takes talent. Ozkan did you mask off several areas of the model to avoid crossing your squiggles and eye's?
    Also, it looks as if you painted the model up in a normal summer paint job and then applied the winter cameo. Either way a very disciplined approach in just getting the right air pressure and paint mixture to get that effect. Two Thumbs up for a complicated painting scheme.

  2. I wholeheartedly agree with Stephen's assessment. That is stunningly eye-catching. What a great job. And I don't think I've ever seen a pattern quite like that before. As for the interior, that is amazing work as well. The choice of color is unique in itself. The rear seat position doesn't look too comfortable, does it? Nice work, sir. A ten-pointer for sure!

  3. Gentlemen, look closely, there is only ONE long squiggle, apparently painted freehand in a single pass, moving the hand slooowly over the model under several hours...

    Just kidding. Ozkan, amazing airbrush work. What's your pressure? Paint mixture? Hand support? We need a tutorial on how to do this! Thanks for sharing. /m.

  4. Ozkan, it's great! A definite 10!

    As to doing the "wave mirror," the best way to think about it is that it was done freehand by 2-3 ground crew with sprayguns, each doing his own variation of the scheme. There is no "right" way and the more uneven and odd it looks from one side to the other, one wing to the other, the more realistic it is.

  5. Thanks for all kind comments friends

    Martin I use Badger Renegade Velocity airbrush for such this applications. Paint that I used was Tamiya X-2 acrylic diluted with cellulose thinner . Proportion is 1/1. Pressure depends on concentration of mixture and I regulate it in every cub of mixture as "not to drop not to flow". It means more or less 1 psi. I do not use any support yet except magnifying glass 🙂
    This patterns not well done at once I repeated process several time by changing white to base colors for corretion. I hope this short description will help you.
