HBB80286 1/72 Junkers Ju-87D-3 Stuka
- Customer Reviews
Later versions such as the D, featured many improvements such as a more powerful engine, more streamlined nose, better defensive guns but they were still vulnerable to enemy fighters. Stuka's were fitted with a pair of 37mm Flak cannons and were used with great success against armoured vehicles. Towards the end of the war Stuka's were being largely replaced by the much more capable Fw190F/G fighter bombers.
This is Hobby Boss' model of the Ju87D. Hobby Boss are a relatively new new manufacturer based in the China. They are known for producing well detailed and well engineered kits, as well as an 'Easy Build' designed for the younger or novice modeller. This is part of the 'Easy Build' Range but has much nicer detailing than the older kits such as the old Airfix one. It looks like it could make a nice model.
There are markings for 2 Luftwaffe Stukas.
