Airfix 1/48 Junkers Ju87B-1 Stuka

Hi Everyone,

I am after a really big favour from someone.  I have started decaling this kit with the decals supplied in the kit.  Having placed the majority of the decals I have ruined the rest of the sheet.  I am aware that I can purchase after market sets but want to complete it with the markings I have.  I am not usually an aircraft modeller so don't have loads of spare decals that I can scrounge from.  

I have contacted Airfix but they cannot help me.

If anyone has a set that they don't need I would be most grateful if we could do some sort of deal.

I "think" i have the luftwaffe markings from the old airfix kit if they'd be any use? No (well in all fairness there weren't many to start with) stencils.

 

if you think it would help i'll have a look for them.....

You say you have already placed the majority of the decals? Be easier if you specify which ones you need to finish the kit. If Generic myself or plenty of others can probably help you out. If specific to the kit, again myself or someone else might be able to help, but it depends which decals you need.  I'm not planning to use all the kit decals on mine as I have an aftermarket set but may need some of them.

I'm surprised Airfix couldn't help. I managed to mess up some of the decals on a 1/48 109 and they replaced them free of charge, and only last week they replaced a complete missing sprue from the 1/48 Mosquito PR.XVI again, free of charge.

@Old Fogey if you don't mind me asking which sprue was missing?

I assume it was one complete sprue as the following parts were missing ...

131 - upper wing

132 - upper wing 
133 - nacelle half
134 - nacelle half
135 - nacelle half 
136 - nacelle half
137 - nacelle top
138 - nacelle top
147 - drop tank half
148 - drop tank half
149 - drop tank half 
150 - drop tank half

Thank you all for your input The actual decals I am missing are #26 T6 from the fuselage side and #21 Large cross from the underside of the wing.

You definitely need the Airfix T6 - to get a decent match to the other side - but a set of generic Balkenkrauz from Hannants or similar will provide all the crosses you may ever need.
