Description

Up for sale is a brand new 1/72 LUFTWAFFE – GERMAN AIR FORCE JUNKERS JU-87D-3 STUKA T6+EK (HA0133) by Hobbymaster.

Because of the slow development of new attack aircraft Germany decided to improve what they already had, the Ju-87. The new and improved version was much more streamlined with an increase of power, so in 1942 this resulted in the Dora (D version) with a 1,400 hp Jumo 211 J or P engine. The new “Dora” was the main Stuka variant with over 5,000 built. The dominant one with more than 1500 produced was the D-3.

The early winter camo scheme was used by units equipped with the Stuka on the eastern front. It was a white wash applied over the standard summer paint scheme with no standard pattern being used. The Soviet summer offensives was driving the Germans back into Central Ukraine and from August 1943 until October 1943 II./StG 2 had suffered 8 losses. One of the Stukas, T6+EK was piloted by 21 year old Friedrich “Fritz” Reissner who shot down by Anti Aircraft fire on April 27, 1943 just east of Krimskaja, Soviet Union.

This model aircraft is made from die-cast metal and include extensive detailing. It is similar in quality to Corgi, Gemini Jets, JC Wings, Witty Wings, Century Wings, NG Models and Aviation72.

Includes display stand.
