1 in stock
This 1/35 scale Stuka is a one off warbird that was a special request from a customer that requested a Stuka in a smaller scale than we normally produce, however the customers circumstances changed and he was unable to complete the purchase.
This is the only one of these warbirds available worldwide and will not be produced again in this scale.
The Junkers Ju 87 Stuka was a German dive bomber and ground attack aircraft employed by the Luftwaffe during WW2. It first flew in 1935 and made its combat debut in Spain in support of the Nationalists. The Stuka sported a distinctive gull shaped wing design and fixed undercarriage spats, to these was fixed the Jericho trumpet which made a wailing noise as the aircraft descended to attack its target, this noise became synonymous with Blitzkrieg propaganda movies. Employed by the Luftwaffe in all its major campaigns, the Stuka fared well right up until the battle of Britain where it was decimated by the RAF’s Hurricanes and Spitfires. However in other theatres the Stuka continued to operate effectively especially in the Balkans and on the Russian front as a tank destroyer. Over 6,500 Stuka’s were made during its service career
As with all our warbirds, a stand is included in the box to display aeroplane in flying mode if required.
