Hasegawa 1/32 Ju87G2 STUKA ‘KANONVOGEL’
My latest build is a commission job and my client supplied me with the EagleCals decal sheet EC#97 containing the markings for Hans-Ulrich Rudel’s last Stuka. He requested that I build the plane in these markings.
He also supplied me with the Aires Resin cockpit set. Rudder pedals and seats have yet to be installed in this shot.

The kit instrument panel was used in preference to the P/E item in the Aires set. The dial faces were cut from the kit decal sheet and applied individually. Once set, a drop of gloss clear was placed onto each dial.
The kit’s push-rod arms were replaced with Evergreen plastic rod. The Voyager prop spinner can also be seen in this photo.
I chose to glue the supercharger flap closed which required two small hinge brackets to be attached to the back of the door.
Voyager’s beautiful turned aluminium gun barrels and brass muzzle brakes were also supplied. These prompted me to install scratch-built plumbing to the gun pods.
