Hello all, keep in safe I hope.

 

Well this Ju-87 was started at the same time as my 109 (1/32 Bf109E White 13 'Another sortie done' - Ready for Inspection - Aircraft - Britmodeller.com) due to the hope that I would be getting some nice wintery weather as a back drop for the photos........but sadly like 2020 its self, it didnt work out! 

 

So, onto the plane, it went together very well without any fit issues at all and painted with Gunze paints. No after market pieces except some homemade seat belts and then weathered with oils. 

 

Ok, some might reckon its over done but this was an effect I was after on this one :-)

I like the weathering too. I presume there was a reason they just had extra armour on the Starboard side and not the Port.

Not so sure about the holes where there should be fasteners on it. Some dressmaking pin heads should fit nicely & make a difference.

Dave... overdone? Who cares, that's a superb finish...! 

 

And in our part of the world, snow and wintery weather won't be too far away, I imagine...

You have made the famed Stuka into a sinister looking adversary.  The weathering conveys the desparate situation the Luftwaffe found itself in during the latter stages of the war.  Great job!!!!! :like:

Hi David, 

 

Excellent model of one of the most interesting birds of WWII! Well done! 

 

One comment if I may - IMHO, maybe the winter wash should have been less uniformly worn/chipped around the plane. I think this would have given it a more interesting effect. Just my thoughts.

 

Again, great work! 

 

Best, 

Nikola

Im not too sure on the placing of the extra armour, i wonder if its only of the starboard side as the pilots would tend to fly circuits in a counter clockwise pattern, so not having it on the portside gave them extra visibility..........well thats my theory lol

Superb! And I like what you did with the canopy mast cut-out.

Yes, for some reason the trumpeter kit has the slot filled in, I did a little research and couldn't find out if there was a mechanism thats filled the hole when it was in the closed position or not. 

Thanks for your comment
