Europe, 1939/40. Vintage JU-87 B – Stuka, Airfix 1/72
This article is part of a series:
This is a 1973/6 rebox Airfix kit (altough the box is from the 70’s, acording to ScaleMates the tool is from 1957) which I had started back in 1980’s and putted aside due to its lack of detail for the past 30 years.
The kit had 25(!) pieces… Theres no cockpit, just a black whole 🙂 and so on…
I started doing some alterations but, as the kit was already assembled and to ‘respect’ its age, I decided to build it just at it was and assume that this is a very vintage old kit.
The decals were completely ruined so I had to print a new ones at home.
The antena wire is from Mig Jimenez Rigging (0,02mm).
I wanted to represent a B Stuka, from the early days of the war, thus it is not weathered, and just slightly dirty.
What a diference between these and new kits…
I’m sorry for the photos quality (they are at the same level as the model, lol)
