    O BTW I know that was a Ju88 inaction, I have the Ju 87 inaction aircraft#73. So any way this is a very old kit from Monogram's vaults. While it shows it's age, It also does try to depict some details. Not as bad as I was thinking before I opened the bag and only was looking at the destructions. I'll have to clean some things up a bit. The pilots seat is a mess. I have the Hasegawa R-2 and the B-2 and I'll look at them fro what I can but I won't steal any parts from them. All in all this does not look very bad despite it's age.

    OK time for the Luftwaffe experts to chime in. The Revell Ju 87D appears to depict a 87D-5+. the wings are the later variant. That being said I am having a difficult time identifying how much different he wings are for the D-3. I have different input that look anything from a B to a D-5 (well near). I have marking for a D-3 any help would be great. Thanks

    Got a dozen or so books on the 87 Don. If the experts don't chime in first, I'll see what I can find. Waiting for the flat coat to dry on my I-16 so this'll give me something to do for a few hours.

    Just something to wet your whistle while I search further. The wings went from 13.8m on the D-3 to 15m on the D-5. The dive brakes were eliminated on the -5 and the wing armament was upped to the MG 151/20 20mm machine cannon.

    *-That takes most thoughts of back dating it out of the question. The wing is fully re designed. That is the best info I have found yet, I do thank ye. What to do, what to do.

    Don, the wing wasn't fully re-designed. Just the wing tips of the D-5 were made longer while the D-3 stll had the old B-2 type wing of smaller wingspan. So if the wing is the one for the D-5 variant you may cut off some of the one at tips including ailerons and reshape them with sandpaper.

    Thinking the same thing, Wojtek though the Hungary version looks very cool.

    So D-1 through D-3 are the B/R wing and the D-5 is some 4.5 feet longer per side. Already ordered the Hungarian markings and I think it is different so I'll go with it.

    Whatever you do Don, can't go wrong with a Ju 87, it's one of those aircraft that pulls at your heart strings.

    Yes they are, Don. What is more the early D-1 had the same wheel spats like the B/R.
