Description

Contains 167 parts. 1st 1/32 scale type G kit in the world!!! (A similar technique is shown in the movie Apocalypse Now). Its rugged fixed undercarriage allowed it to land and take-off from improvised airstrips close to the battlefront, giving close support to the advancing German forces. The Stuka was sturdy, accurate, and very effective, but also slow, unmaneuverable, underarmed, and vulnerable to enemy fighters. The Germans learned in the Battle of Britain that air superiority must be obtained before ground attack aircraft could be effectively used. More than six thousand Ju 87 were built between 1936 and August 1944. Hans-Ulrich Rudel was the most notable Stuka ace, and in fact the most highly decorated German soldier of the war. « less
