Stuka Ju 87G-1 Revell 1:48


Recommended Posts

This is the second 87g-1 model I've built. I am planning to paint a tan and/or green camouflage with my new airbrush. I'm going to try weathering on this model since I've gotten pretty good at the painting part. I finished airbrushing the base tan on the wings and small pieces and finished all of the blue. I plan to make the canopies open and no pilots in it, and gear are always down anyway.

I'm planning to paint one of these designs but I'm not sure which one yet.  Input with this is appreciated! I'm not sure if I should put the under wing guns on yet either.

Here are the top of the wings and a couple miscellaneous pieces including the rear gun, the unfinished gear, etc.

This is the bottom and top of the tail.

Here is the canopy glass which I will hand paint and the finished wheels.

I have yet to finish the fuselage but the taped parts are blue and the pilots and gunner is installed.

These are the decals I plan to use, and of course they are the only decals I have.

All those shown are B models. 

The G is late, a development of the D model.  They have a new nose and canopy, plus small UC legs.  Later version have extended wings as well, which is what the model you have has.     

 

AFAIK the G was too late to be used in the desert. Some D models were, but there is debate on if they got the desert scheme.

The D did not have the underwing guns.
