1/48th scale Stuka (added pic)

I’m pretty sure this post from some time back meets the requirements for the group build. Although the colors may be incorrect (?), the airplane certainly played a role in the BoB. This was, I believe, an inexpensive Revell offering, but I tried to make it “presentable”. Thanks for your continued indulgence. I also added the 32nd Stuka which hung (past tense) in the model room for quite a while.

  1. Nice one. Did the flaps come detached or did you cut them? Nate

  2. Hi Nate….what ya see is what I got. The kit wasn’t worth doin’ any “alterations”.

  3. Nice looking Stuka, Craig, I couldn’t comment on the colours, but, I’m colour blind anyway!

  4. Nice Stuka Craig, after seeing a lot of german wartime birds, i don t believe in textbook camo on german aircraft anymore. But typical was the lettering with two digits before and two behind the fuselage cross.
    Does this beauty still exist ?

  5. Nice one Craig, looks good for its age mate.

  6. Nice build Craig – is that perhaps an old Monogram kit? If it’s 1/48, I’m guessing Monogram (although possible Revell issued it after aquiring Mono?). I think Revell only did 1/72 and 1/32 versions of this one. Either way, looks good to me!

  7. Craig, What color Testors spray paint did you use for the blue?

  8. This is the Monogram Stuka JU-87 G tank buster, which they later redid as a D with bombs. Considering its age, it still holds its own.
    The G was a mod of the D, dedicated tank buster. Rudel was it’s best proponent, and continued to use it right up to the end of the war.
    Revell dd have a 1/72, which could be made as either a D or a G.
    I dunno if Revell ever reissued either the 48th D or G under their label after their merger.
