The Junkers Ju87 was designed as a Dive Bomber to support the army by acting as 'flying artillery'. Known as the Stuka, the Ju87 excelled as a dive bomber, being able to precision bomb with greater accuracy than nearly all other bombers of WW2. The Ju87 did not just support the army but it also excelled in the anti ship, sinking a large number of warships and merchant ships during WW2 and seriously damaging many more.  
The Stuka had 2 main weaknesses, the first was lack of range and the second and more importantly it was very vulnerable to fighters, as it could not outrun or outfight enemy fighters. This weakness was first exposed during the Battle of Britain, as when they attacked without escort, they were decimated by the RAF's Spitfires and Hurricanes. So much so that they were withdrawn from the Battle of Britain early. Stuka's remained in use until the end of the war and even then proved lethal whenever enemy fighters were not present.

Eduard are a Czech based manufacturer famed for their model accessories. They have in the last few years released a successful range of kits. The 1/144 scale kits are a new range and are crisp and cleanly moulded with a high level of detail for such a small scale. This is a double kit, meaning there are 2 kits in the box. There are 3 different marking options and the kits come with a few etch metal parts.
