  1. This is my interpretation of Hubert Polz's JU-87R-2 Stuka while stationed at Tmimi, Libya in 1941. There are few (4, I believe) photo's of this aircraft, so a lot of the scheme is speculative (even the color of the snake!) This is the Hasegawa B-2/R-2 kit, with Three Guys decals (modified and corrected), wing tanks from the Airfix B-1 (why were they included?), and painted with Tamiya acrylics. Hope you like, Colin

  5. One of the 3 Covid builds I have on the go is a 1/48 (Hasegawa) JU-87R-2 Stuka - yes, the famous (or infamous) Desert Snake flown by Hubert Poltz. Being a Hasegawa kit, just a little dressing up of the cockpit was needed. A little scratchbuilding, and a pair of Ultracast seats, and exhaust stacks. I also had to make out of scrap brass the 2 small armor plates for the rear gunner canopy ... The build continued using the spare long range tanks included in the Airfix JU-87B-1 (not used on the B-1) The fit was exceptio
  6. On the night of 26/27 July, with the eighteen jeeps, each carrying 3 or 4 British or French commandos, navigating the desert without headlights and trying to keep formation. The weather was ideal with a full moon and no clouds. As the raiders approached the airfield, the lights lining the runway switched on, causing a degree of panic among the commandos who feared they had been detected but the lights had been turned on for a Luftwaffe bomber to land. Stirling fired a green flare and ordered the jeeps forward onto the airfield in 'V' formation. The SAS stormed the airfield, using their K guns,
  7. Hi all Here is my latest finished model. Academy Ju87G-2 Tank Buster in 1/72nd scale. Mostly out of the box except for: Eduard pre-painted PE seat belts, Master brass cannons, scratch-built piping and details on cannons gondolas, correction and re-scribing of a few panel lines and scratch-built pitot tube. Gunze acrylics used overall and weathered with Tamiya panel accent and water color pencil Critics and comments are welcomed!

  9. Welcome to my second project of this group build. This will be one with a personal connection, more on that shortly. Eighty years ago today marks what was once known as the start of the Battle of Britain. On this date the Luftwaffe's main target was Convoy PEEWIT, which attracted three sizable Stuka raids. The 24 ships had sailed from Southend in the early morning of 7th August 1940 and were first spotted by the Germans off Wissant that afternoon. The convoy was subjected to persistent and determined attacks, first by E-boats early in the morning of 8th August (in which three
  10. Per poll. Having trouble finding either in stock ATM. Thanks.
  11. Hello! This is my recent project, a classic WW2 warbird. Nice kit, everything went well. Unfortunately, the clear part, which would allow to build a full open canopy, came damaged beyond repair. It had a L shape hole right on the top. So, I had to make it half open. Anyway, the plastic is very thin and clear so we can see a lot of details inside. Eduard PE were used. Hope you enjoy! Cheers!
  12. Greetings, All - this is my debut, so please be gentle! After many years of messing about I decided to get serious and tackle the stash. First up is the Revell 1/32 Stuka which I understand is actually Hasegawa plastic. I used the Eduard Interior & Exterior PE, the Eduard masks, the HGW fabric seat belts and Quickboost resin (exhausts, propellor blades & machine gun barrels). The interior is a mini-project on its own and I discovered that (in this scale), some thicknesses of guitar strings do a very good job of resembling hoses and cables in terms of texture & bendabil
  13. With a bit more room here, I was thinking about suitable types for a STGB. One aircarft type which crossed my mind was the Junkers Ju 87 Stuka. There are great kits out there in all the scales and an upcoming new release from Airfix in 1/48 and I couldn't see it listed in the completed GB listing, so it looks like it was never done before. Also the type flew from the Spanish Civil War up to the end of WWII and was operated in many different colour schemes by all the Axis Air Forces plus captured examples. And with its 3.7 cm canons, it was the closest thing to a flying
  14. This is a collection of all the small scale models myself and David (the husband) have built so far. These were all pretty hard to photograph being so small so i hope you don't mind my less than perfect photography skills (plus I should have dusted a couple first!) Lets begin with the Eduard spitfire, made by David. It was painted using alcad and tamiya acrylics. This model goes together like a dream and wing of this aircraft is phenomenally thin! Next up is the Stuka. This is the older eduard boxing with the snake (I presume the one coming out soon is the same kit just with differen
  15. Hi All, For this group build (my first!), I'll be building a Ju87B from the Airfix kit. Still a month left for the GB and from memory this kit should fall together nicely. I have a few goodies to go with it: My plan is to represent a Battle of Britain aircraft, and to narrow down a subject I couldn't resist summarising what the Stukas achieved. The charts below show information compiled from my references. Hopefully this comes out OK for everyone. I'm planning to build one of the aircraft that flew on one of the major Convo
  16. I see we have a couple of the wonderful looking Airfix Ju87B already in the GB and I wonder if i can join with the same. I intend to build the boxed Condor Legion option. I started this last week at my local modelling group as it was a build night, so here is starting pic and progress to date. Obligatory and excellent box art! Interestingly 'designed and manufactured in the UK' - surpise and welcome. To prove not started! Cockpit progress on build night - I take my time! Main cockpit parts painted. Matt blac
  17. Hi there! First GB of the year done (Mustang), time for another This will be my model, once again, like all my 1/48 prop planes, is from my dad's stash. And it will return to my dad's shelf once done. But I get the pleasure to build it and don't have to worry about storing it. Win-win? Pretty artwork I must say! Quite a lot of small sprues! Looks decent, though - Hasegawa kits tend to be pretty good. Will be doing t
  18. I'm back into plastic modelling after getting on for 40 years I love the idea of Group Builds and this is my Stuka STGB entry - an Academy 1/72 JU87G-1 "Tank Buster". Whilst thinking about this Group Build I happened across this YouTube documentary Dive Bombers And Combat Aircrafts Of WW2. The Stuka certainly had an interesting history throughout WW2. This Academy model features two decal sets, one of which was flown by Hptm Hans-Ulrich Rudel one of the most highly decorated Luftwaffe airmen. Many thanks Tom
  19. Happy New Year all! Here is my entry to the GB, yet another Airfix Stuka, which is looking like a popular choice so far. I am not overly enamored with the choice of transfers ootb so i will source some AM versions for my build. Will get started shortly, thanks for looking, Cheers! Greg
  20. Junkers Ju 87D-5 Stuka Kit: Hasegawa Junkers Ju 87 D-5 Stuka (09053 / JT53) Scale: 1/48 Paints: Vallejo Model & Air Weathering: Flory Models Wash, MIG weathering products, oil paints Built for the Stuka GB. Good solid kit, had a lot of fun with the weathering and making this thing worn and beaten. Went little bit 'artistic' on this one, truth to be told did not look a lot of reference pictures. Out of the box - only added pitot tube and weapon barrels (injection needles). WIP thread:
  21. This will be my entry build to this group, Italeri's Junkers Ju 87B in Italian service, or "Picchiatello." Here's the box art: Several sprues in light grey plastic, one in clear plastic, and a single photoetch fret. And the decal sheet, nicely printed by Cartograf. It covers four schemes, two Italian, one British captured, and the legendary Snake Stuka B-2/R2. I won't start building this right now because I have an Me 262 on the bench, but this Stuka will be my next project.
  22. So I'm going to be building this -> Seems it's a pretty popular kit in the GB so it will be interesting to compare results and build notes! Here's some obligatory sprue and instruction shots... This is the first Airfix kit I've built in over 25 years and as a newer tooling it will be interesting to compare to all the older kits I've been building. The part count seems quite high (probably as the average age of kit builders has gone up over the years), but it seems nicely engineered - the wheels for example have a weighted/sagged side or an u
  23. This is the special edition of the Hasegawa kit, which includes some white metal parts for the 20mm cannons, flame damping exhausts and the different antenna for the top of the canopy. As usual the Hasegawa kits go together without much fuss with the decals and detail being just fine for this scale. I did add some seat belts to the kit though. The aircraft depicts one of Nachtschlachgruppe 9 in Italy that carried out night harassment raids against the allies. Camo was done free hand.
  24. Evening all, My fourth completion of the year, the lovely little Airfix Ju 87B-1 Stuka. I added some Eduard seat belts and main markings came from an Xtradecal sheet, otherwise it's completely OOB. Finished with what has become the usual Hataka Orange Line Lacquers and W&N matt varnish. 1/72 Airfix Junkers Ju 87B-1 Stuka by Shaun Schofield, on Flickr 1/72 Airfix Junkers Ju 87B-1 Stuka by Shaun Schofield, on Flickr 1/72 Airfix Junkers Ju 87B-1 Stuka by Shaun Schofield, on Flickr 1/72 Airfix Junkers Ju 87B-1 Stuka by Shaun Schofield
  25. Finished this Stuka yesterday as part of the Ju 87 GB, which ends in April. This plane was also my first entry ever into a group build! It's not a bad kit. The clear parts are the worst parts, they're narrower than the cockpit opening, so they don't sit properly over the opening.
