JU-87 D3 – Stuka, 1/72
This article is part of a series:
This is a plane I built to a friend.
It represents one of Hans-Ulrich Rudel planes, ence the chevrons, yellow stripes on the wings and the green nose (as he describes in his book).
The kit is from Hoby-boss, on 1/72 scale, and seems quite nice. My friend had assembled it already and gave it to me to paint, but it seems to fit well.
I painted it with Hataka orange line paints and weathered with artist oils. Some decals (chevrons) are home-made/printed.
The antena wire is from Mig Jimenez Rigging (0,02mm).
Being one of the Comander planes, I thought that it must be well maintained, so kept the weathering low, expect for the under side as the airfields in Russia were quite mudy 😉
Well… I had fun. Photos are not good enough, but i’ll try to get better ones later.
[UPDATE]: Last saturday (2019jan26) this plane met its new owner. He liked a lot!
