1/48 JU-87R-2 Stuka, Hubert Polz’s desert snake, 6./St.G 2, 1941, Tmimi, Libya
This is my interpretation of Hubert Polz’s JU-87R-2 Stuka while stationed at Tmimi, Libya in 1941.
There are only a few (4, I believe) photo’s of this aircraft, so a lot of the scheme is speculative (even the color of the snake is disputed!) I’ve tried to be as accurate as possible, based on the available photo’s. Most decal manufactures get the details wrong – even the codes! (should be T6+DP)
This is the Hasegawa B-2/R-2 kit with some detailing and scratch building, marked with Three Guys decals (modified and corrected), wing tanks from the Airfix B-1, painted with Tamiya acrylics, and weathered with pastels, and oils.
