hans4.jpgHad I known the 1:72 scale would be so much fun...oops better not even go there!hans1.jpg The detail is amazing for these little kits, truly enjoyable in what you can accomplish in a very short time. I did this just in a few hours over the weekend.

Surprised on the nice fit between the fuselage and wings...I had issues doing the 1:32 planes and that was a major reason I went to ARMOR!!!

Hi Colin,

looks like Academy have done good job with this kit as have you with the build. I've always fancied doing a Stuka, will have to keep an eye out for one.

Hi Colin.

it's about 2 years since I built something that doesn't run around on the ground, maybe it's about time again

This is looking good. molding seems very well detailed.

Bookmarked!

Funny, I have an 8x loop and could not read some of the decals. Also my decal sheet did not include that nice white swastika on the tail. I looked thru 20+ kits to grab one and big nada! I guess Evil bay for the coup de grais!
