    Need some help here chaps! I knew that Hasegawa's done a B-2 Stuka, I didn't know that they'd done a D and a R-2 version as well....:oops:
    Are these, the D and the R-2, their own molds, or are they some old ones bought over from another manufacturer?
    What's the word?
    Just thought that I'd add a Stuka to the "collection" or the "production line", remember building many blue moons ago in 1/72, while visiting my Granddad....




    What's the main difference between the B, D and the R?

    R mark was the B type modification for loger range. The Ju87R was equipped with fuel tanks of bigger capacity in wings and two additional fuel tanks under wings.. D version was powered by another Junkers Jumo 211 engine J-1 ( Jumo 211Da for B and R versions) That's way the front part of the Ju87D had different shape from B and R Ju87s ( longer nose). Because Ju 87 D based on B type,the most of D-1 planes were equipped with the same main landing gear like B type.Later Ju87Ds got the landing gear of different shape. Starting from D-5 variant Ju87 was equipped with a wing of bigger wingspan.Of course there were other modifications introduced but these above were these major in the external view.

    Here you go son.....:D

    [​IMG]

    I noticed that the StG2 used numbers on the wheel spats with Stab II./StG2 having a white 2, but, another machine from 4./StG is also numbered 2. As it says with one of the pics in the book....."Note the aircraft letter L and the numeral 11 on the undercarriage fairing. When Gruppen consisted of three Staffeln, some letters were not used in the aircraft code systems, hence the slight mismatch between the L, the twelfth letter of the alphabet and the and the 11"

    Was the StG2 the only Geschwader to use this numeral system, how did it work and has anyone ever seen a.....well you know, a 13? :oops:
