Setting their Sights on Kursk
Junkers Ju 87G-1 Stuka


by Michael Wolfe


Hasegawa's 1/48 scale Junkers Ju 87G Stuka is available online from Squadron.com




Here is my diorama entitled, "Setting Their Sights on Kursk".

I used the 1/48 scale Hasegawa Ju 87 G-1 "Kanonenvogel". I added parts from the Eduard photo-etch detail set to the cockpit and the underside of the wings. I added plumbing to the gun pods using stretched sprue. I replaced the kit wheels with aset from True Details. Decals are from Aeromaster.

Figures are from Verlinden, the pilot with the leather jacket is from Jaguar.

The starter cart is from Verlinden, a kit all by itself.

The base was scratchbuilt using exterior foam insulation that cut to shape and the edges sanded with fine sandpaper. I used Verlinden static grass, real dirt from the yard and basswood strips cut to length.

This diorama shows a Kanonenvogel being prepared to have its flak guns callibrated.
