Junkers Ju 87 Stuka STGB Chat

Recommended Posts

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 tank. ;)

 

Any takers to put the name on the list?

Strange subject for me. From my point of view it is buttugly, has poor performance, from the completely wrong operator. I cannot say I like it but for some strange reason I think it is an interesting aircraft and even I got one in stash: 1:48, Revell box, Verlinden update set and replacement decals from Topcolours.
So yes - I would be interested :-)

Count me in. I still have to buy one but this GB would be a good excuse :D Also, I've always had a fascination for the Stuka.

 

Cheers

Count me in, I have a hasegawa tank buster plus I want to convert a C to naval and have the wings folded and torpedo underneath!

I've been fascinated by the Stuka since my dad took me to see The Battle of Britain way back in 1969, so I'm up for this too.

After all, I already have Academy's1/72 Stuka "Kanonenvogel" in the stash. Anyway, I've been eyeing Airfix's 1/72 new tool and Tamyia's Stukas. Any opinions on these?

 

Cheers

Hi Jaime, the Airfix kit is really nice and offers all the detail you could ask for in 1/72. The Tamiyas are reboxings of another manufacturer, I can't remember which. Cheers Greg

She certainly isn't a beauty queen, but butt ugly is a bit harsh on the old girl. What I find amazing is that the type managed to solder on until the end of WWII and finding niches it actually didn't too bad .

I totally forgot that there was also a naval variant.

Maybe more like 2019 :( But in case we are getting 25 interested members on the list, we may make it still into 2018 :)

 

Greg, are you interested in this GB?

Yes, the Airfix kit looks rather tasty in the box. The Tamiyas are reboxings of the Italeri kits.

 

Cheers, Peter

Glad you like the idea. Yes a co-host would be great and I appreciate you are willing to take it on.

Glad you decided to join.

 

Would be great if another 14 members decide to join so that me may make it into a 2018 STGB slot.

I've got a couple of Stuka's in the stash and will no doubt be adding Airfix's latest offering when it becomes available, which will have to be Spanish. In fact don't expect anything Luftwaffe as my last Stuka was Yugoslav and the others in my stash will be Italian and Hungarian.

Welcome aboard modelling minion. Other colour schemes than Luftwaffe look great on the Stuka.

Your in Sgt. Thanks for joining.

 

With the new Airfix Stuka out now, there should be a bit more interest for the type and this GB.

I've missed this but would like to join. I hope the Airfix 1/48 B-2 is out in time as I'd really like to do a non-Luftwaffe one. I need to see if anybody else got B-1s I suppose. Hmm...

Welcome aboard SleeperService. With a bit of luck we may get the list of 25 together bu 2020, so you should be fine with a B-2.

I think this deserves a bump. This could be THE opportunity for all your "in-flight" builders to make an aircraft with an undercarriage ;) This IS a once in a lifetime opportunity.

Im thinking of a night raiding stuka on the Eastern front with the long exhausts and blacked out markings. So go ahead count me in 👍

 

PS - Since I built the night Raider for the Mediterranean group build. I will do either a B.o.B. Stuka, desert stuka, or an eastern front stuka in whitewash.

Since I've signed in to the list I've purchased two Airfix Stukas: the BoB boxing and the latest boxing with the desert scheme. So, I have now three options to choose from :)

 

Cheers
