Ju-87B Airfix Versus Hasegawa Ju-87B ?

Before the release of the new Airfix 1/48 Stuka JU-87B  I would like to ask if are there some differences between the new Airfix kit versus the Hasegawa one ? which is more detailed or right in dimensions ? Does can we expect for the D/G versions ?

Thanks

Tonka

The reviews I have read have the Airfix kit being far superior.

There is no reason to believe they will do D/G versions. They have done early versions six times, in 1/72, 1/48 and 1/24, and never done a D/G

The old Airfix kit in 1/48 wasn't a bad kit, had some lumps and bumps as a real Ju87, and easy to make for some reason.

I have the Has/Rev kit of the Ju 87 in the stash, looking forward to seeing it on the bench, as even 20 years old, still good tool.

Yes, if you need one, then new Airfix is the way to go, just don't throw the old ones away.😊

I'd second that (old airfix kit).  The "horseshoes" for the rear stab struts are moulded the wrong way round the the instructions would have you put the italian wing markings upside down but still fun!

I made the old Airfix Ju 87, as a throw away model, practice some ideas, we all do it.

But the truth was, it's not bad, and ended up a good kit, as said, easy as well.
