Airfix Stuka - Battle of Britain No.1

Recommended Posts

Finally got round to finishing and photographing the beautiful Airfix 1/72 Stuka. The first in my intended ‘Battle of Britain’ mini collection :D

 

Thanks for looking in...

As Steve says, it's a great piece of miniature a/c production. Sadly, I'mm all fingers and thimbs myself so would find this  scale more of a challenge than the larger scale stuff I usually attempt. I dis-interred an old Airfix 1/24 scale that a friend had in a garage which also was an attempt to show a used and abused Ju 87 from 6/StG 1 and I'm always easy to confuse when it comes to the background colour for the staffel shield, sometimes shown as pale blue but I went for white, right or wrong I don't know. Anyway it's a great model, peerlessly finished. Paul

An absolute masterpiece.

I only wish I had your skills.

That's very nice, love the paint job. I'm not a fan of 1/72 generally because panel lines can't be anything but trench-like, but your Stuka gets away with it!

An absolute gem. Had to scroll back to the top to check the scale.

I can only quote what all the rest have written and just add this: "Wish it were mine!" :D

Because then I would:

1) have a beautifull model in my cabinet

2) actually have finished something! :winkgrin:

 

:goodjob:

 

Cheers :bye:

Guy,

 

What a  superb effort.

 

The camouflage application and demarcation is remarkably fine and that is a very clean cockpit.

Really outstanding, I enlarged the shot of the cockpit and was stunned at the detail you have managed to get.
