| Description

The Junkers Ju87 Stuka quickly became one of the most infamous, and feared weapons of the Second World War. The two-man dive bomber first saw action in the skies over Spain during the Spanish Civil War. While outdated in appearance the Stuka did contain some modern features such as automatic dive brakes but overall the design was outmoded.

Over the skies of Poland, France and the Low Countries in 1940 the Stuka was able to operate in clear skies and did so effectively but over the South of England during the Battle of Britain, the Stuka came up against staunch RAF fighter opposition, and suffered as a result. Later the Stuka was used in the Balkans and the Western Desert, and continued to serve Russia, as a tank destroyer, until the end of the Second World War.

Flawed kit

I had read reviews about this kit and was wary about the deformed parts. I had bough two kits to make two versions one a Ju87B and a Ju87R. The kits has parts for both but doesn't say like a lot of the new kits. However the deformed parts mentioned in both my kits were fine but both kits had deformed clear parts namely part E02. What was there was nothing like the pictured instructions and of course didn't fit. So not impressed with quality control. If you get kit be prepared to have to request replacement parts as it seems the kit is extremely flawed with many different parts. Some parts do not fit as well as implied either namely A17. Needs considerable fiddling to get it positioned well. Pity as otherwise best Ju87 kit on market just need to wait to get deformed parts.... Read more

Good kit... not great!

Such a shame for a kit with so much potential. Kit is very good, but there are flaws. I found radio operator seat base and gun sight to be deformed on the sprue. As from what I read, other people did too. One "Pig" decal for Legion Condor scheme is printed backward. Some parts come with lots of mold marks to be sanded for a new tool etc. Solutions for wheels (in flight/on the ground) and location of ejection marks (hidden from sight) are brilliant!
