Airfix 1/24 Ju87B Stuka

Recommended Posts

This is by way of a test, since I'm still a little technologically challenged. Trying to work out how to share photos, so apologies if this doesn't work.

I initially posted on the Stuka January and the original intention was to share the progress. Sadly I never got round to doing that. The aircraft is now in my brother in laws study, but I thought that some of you may be interested.

That's very nice! Is that the kit interior? Or an aftermarket set?

Thanks,

It's the kit interior enhanced with a little scratch work, aftermarket stencils and seatbelts.

That looks really really nice. Love the interior. The data decals make it look really convincing.

 

Cheers

Yes. :)

 

Phantastic work. As far as I can say very very near to the full scale stuka.

Thanks for the kind words. 

 

For those who want a bit more info, I’ve used the Montex stencil set depicting the Ju87 B-2 trop deployed in Gambut, Libya in 1941. The RLM 70/71 paint is Gunze Sangyo acrylic as is the RLM 65 underside. The sandgelb overlay is RLM79 from Xtracrylix which looked rather bright until I did a colour wash in burnt sienna and then in black. Finally I added a small amount of white paint to Tamiya Matt Clear. When I blew it over with that, the colours toned down nicely plus I achieved an effect of light layers of sand on the wings.

 

Interior was primarily Tamiya XF22 - RLM Grey (RLM 02) which is (I hope) the right colour! I was working on the basis that RLM 66  schwartzgrau was used later.

 

Having heard so much bad press on the 1/24 kits, I thought this was a great kit, and if you have one stashed away, GET IT OUT!

 

The only issues I had were a few broken pieces, but I can forgive that. The kit itself was about 35 years old and I must praise Airfix after sales who came through with replacements very quickly.

 

Next up 1/24 scale Spit Mk1.

Nicely done. I still don't know how would I brush this three tone scheme.

That looks great, the cockpit is nicely enhanced by your extra work.

 

I always fancied one when it first came out but my pocket money wasn't enough. 🙁

I'm glad you posted the additional, pics as they really show your detailed work. Your cockpit interior looks amazing.

 

It must be a fair old size at 1/24 scale!

You do need a lot a space for these...😉

I've been looking for one of these for a couple of years - I always check the shops and shows I visit but can't seem to find one.

 

Lovely job sir - a real inspiration.
