Aurora/Heller Prestige Series 1/72 Bucker Bu 133 “Jungmeister”
In 1933, the “Jungmeister” (Young Champion) 133 was the flegling Luftwaffe’s primary trainer. As an export, it was flying in 20 different countries by 1937. It’s still flying, in a modified form, aerobatics at todays airshows.
At 3 1/8th inches in length, and 3 1/2 inch wing span, this Heller kit is one of the smallest bi-planes, or for that matter, any 1/72 aircraft I’ve done. It was basically an easy build that went together easily, with decent results. With that short a wingspan, rigging was a snap. A little patience will yeild a nice looking , little model.
