Border Models 1/35 JU-87 G Kanonvogel
JoeB posted a topic in Work in Progress - AircraftJust started the Border Models JU87 G Stuka 1/35 So far it’s an amazing kit. All the parts fit like a glove and need next to zero sanding and finishing. The odd tiny bit of filler but as near to perfect as you can get, in my limited experience! The engine mounts had holes drilled but one was still filled, yet any pictures online showed them all open. Seems strange that they left one on each mount undrilled, so that was about the only addition I have made so far. The engine is a little fiddly due to the size and the number of pieces but a pleasure to build. It would be nice if Border Models had a paint breakdown so you don’t have to search the web and basically use the Hasegawa plans…… Just need to age it up a little and onwards and upwards. It is difficult to find good open cowl pictures of the Jumo 211 J engine, and particularly the starboard side. The plans show a single oil tank fitted on the outer side on the engine mount on the port side, and yet on one drawing I found it showed another oil tank on the starboard side as well. I couldn’t find any open cowl pictures of the port side though to confirm it, so if anyone knows I would appreciate the information.
Stuka Ju 87G-1 Revell 1:48
Joanna posted a topic in Work in Progress - AircraftThis is the second 87g-1 model I've built. I am planning to paint a tan and/or green camouflage with my new airbrush. I'm going to try weathering on this model since I've gotten pretty good at the painting part. I finished airbrushing the base tan on the wings and small pieces and finished all of the blue. I plan to make the canopies open and no pilots in it, and gear are always down anyway. I'm planning to paint one of these designs but I'm not sure which one yet. Input with this is appreciated! I'm not sure if I should put the under wing guns on yet either. Here are the top of the wings and a couple miscellaneous pieces including the rear gun, the unfinished gear, etc. This is the bottom and top of the tail. Here is the canopy glass which I will hand paint and the finished wheels. I have yet to finish the fuselage but the taped parts are blue and the pilots and gunner is installed. These are the decals I plan to use, and of course they are the only decals I have.
my builds up to now
