    Username: Catch22
    Category: Intermediate
    Scale: 1/32
    Manufacturer: Hasegawa
    Model Type: Ju 87D-5 (Incorrectly labeled as D-8)
    Details: 2./NSG 9, E8+GK Gehdi, Italy in 1944
    Other: Will be built out of box, as I've spent over $300 on models this summer!

    My first and possibly (though unlikely) my only build for the MTO GB will be this Ju 87D-5. Erich and others have already kindly provided some great info about the plane in this thread: http://www.ww2aircraft.net/forum/questions-kits-decals-tools-pilots/ju-87d-8-a-19074.html

    I cannot find a profile of GK, but I DO have a profile for JK, so I'm going to go by the assumption that they look pretty similar unless I'm told otherwise. This won't be started until I'm finished my Panther, which will only be a few days at most, I just haven't had time to start a thread for it, though I've taken pics along the way.

    Once again, Hasegawa's painting instructions are completely nuts, but as I have a profile it will not be an issue. I also now know how to use my airbrush (after a year and a half! :lol:) so I think I will be able to pull this tricky scheme off. Any additional info would be welcome of course!

    Very nice!! I cannot wait to master an airbrush well enough to paint something like that.

    Thanks VB! I've hardly mastered it, I've more muddled along and accidentally found out how to do things!

    That Camo job will test the airbrush skills for sure, but that's what it's all about. A fine choice Catch.

    Cheers

    Cool! Good choice Corry and if I'm not mistaken first entry of an Luftwaffe aircraft for this Group Build so far.
    Looking forward to fallow your work on this model.

    I actually was able to get a copy, so I'm good in that respect.

    Thanks again guys, and thanks Terry, that would be great because I have very little on the Stuka.

    Thanks Paul, I will probably take you up on that! Cockpit pictures would be great as a starter though.

    Great work once again Paul!
    Cory, I've got three or more books on the Stuka, on PDF, although one is for the earlier models. The only way I can extract individual pics or pages is by printing them, then scanning, as I can't seem to find any other way of doing it! If you'd like them, just shout, and I'll send all of them to you on a CD. I'm afraid the files are too big to e-mail.
