Product Description

Product Description

The Ju 87B series was to be the first mass produced variant. The first variant, the Ju 87 B-0, was produced in small numbers. A total of six Ju 87 B-0s were produced, built from Ju 87 A airframes.

The next major variant was the Ju 87 B-1 with a considerably larger engine, its Junkers Jumo 211D generating 1,200 PS (883 kW, 1,184 hp), and the fuselage and landing gear were completely redesigned. This new design was again tested in Spain, and after proving its abilities there, production was ramped up to 60 per month. As a result, by the outbreak of World War II the Luftwaffe had 336 Ju 87 B-1s on hand. The B-1 was also fitted with "Jericho trumpets", essentially noise-making propellers with a diameter of 0.7 m (2.3 ft). This was used to damage enemy morale and enhance the intimidating effect of dive-bombing.

Product Description

The Ju 87 or Stuka (from Sturzkampfflugzeug, 'dive bomber') was a two-seat German ground-attack aircraft. It first flew in 1935 and its first combat was in 1936 as part of the Luftwaffe's Condor Legion in the Spanish Civil War. Paints and Cement are required to complete model (Not Included) Specification: Model Scale 1:48 Number of Parts 86 Dimensions (mm) L225 x W287 Requires Painting Yes Age 8+

3.0 out of 5 stars Airfix 1:48 Stuka 29 July 2013
Verified Purchase
Durability: 2.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 2.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This model has plenty of detail, but as usual with Airfix poor instructions, useless colour guides, poorly fitting parts (you WILL need both filling putty and superglue for this).

Also, as usual there's the usual snag of historical inaccuracy. Thanks to our Orwellian post-WWII governments models aren't allowed to come with swastikas (apparently seeing a historically accurate swastika decal on a model plane will magically turn a kid into a "Nazi"...). I recommend Hannants.co.uk, as they sell loads of decals, specific sets of decals as well as sheets of specific sizes of just swastika decals (which vary in colour depending on the period).

I look forward to having this finished as I know it'll look great, but it's hard work, for the reasons - because the parts just don't fit properly, rather than because there are a lot of small, fiddly parts. By this I mean the most obvious things, like the wings, and getting the cockpit to fit inside the fuselage was a nightmare, and even after trimming it ruthlessly I still had a huge gap running down the middle of the plane...

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
A fairly simple kit, not many parts, slight lack of detail but a build challenge as a lot of flashing and ill fitting parts.

I was surprised to find when I opened the box that the 1:48 was much smaller than I expected. It is still ok.
