The Junkers Ju 87 or Stuka (from Sturzkampfflugzeug, "dive bomber") was a two-seat (pilot and rear gunner) German ground-attack aircraft of World War II. Designed by Hermann Pohlmann, the Stuka first flew in 1935 and made its combat d├ębut in 1936 as part of the Luftwaffe's Condor Legion during the Spanish Civil War. The aircraft was easily recognizable by its inverted gull wings, fixed spatted undercarriage and its infamous Jericho-Trompete ("Jericho Trumpet") wailing siren, becoming the propaganda symbol of German air power and the Blitzkrieg victories of 1939-1942. The Stuka's design included several innovative features, including automatic pull-up dive brakes under both wings to ensure that the plane recovered from its attack dive even if the pilot blacked out from the high acceleration.

  1. A Fine 1-110 Junkers 87 Sturzkampfflugzeug Dora with a few additions 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd Apr 2019

    The only real draw back here is the lack of the tailfin Swastika, and lack of of 550 lb bomb, and its dive brakes which without it any Sturzkampfflugzeug is rather useless. The aircraft also sports two rather oversize wing guns (it is as if these were confused by the model designer, with the underwing 37mm A/T guns the '43 Schlachtflieger version carried.) These will need to be cut down to the wing edge to represent the two 7.9mm MG 17, the early Dora carried. Also missing is the rear firing 7.9mm MG-34, but often that was stowed away while on the ground.
    The blurb is also incorrect. The siren equipped dive bomber was the JU-87b (Berta) The JU-87d was transitioning to a ground attack (Schlachtflieger) aircraft in 1943 and no longer carried bombs, but these StG77 (Steffel Geschwader 77) 9. Staffel, III Gruppe markings are correct for 1942 and the camo (White and light green) dates the aircraft to Feb/March 1942 the end of the Soviet winter counter offensive when the aircraft was still a dive bomber.
    Swastikas (2) can be procured by any decal supply store, and a four finned 550 lb bomb can be made from the modeler scrap box, (never throw anything away), or purchased from hobby shops carrying various model ordinance for 1-144 scale aircraft. Get a 1,000 lb bomb, which will be the correct size on a 1-110 scale aircraft. As long as it is viewed from the top, and not bottom to notice the missing dive brakes you will have a fine JU-87 in unique camouflage to add to your collection.
