Hasegawa's 1/32 scale Junkers Ju 87 D and G kits are accurate and nicely detailed.

J. Rutman Productions has now released a new accessory that will individualize your large scale Stuka. This replacement main undercarriage set offers the chance to build your Stuka with the bottom spat sections removed and the lower gear struts exposed.

The undercarriage set comprises six parts in cream coloured resin and two parts in cast metal.

The resin parts make up the wheels (in two halves each) and the upper spats, complete with the flexible covers cast in place.

Metal parts are the lower gear legs. Hydraulic lines are cast in place on each of the lower legs.

All parts are produced to a high standard, with minimal cleanup required. The resin upper spats have locating holes drilled into the bottom of the parts to ensure a solid bond with the metal gear legs. The top of the spats feature locating pins for the bottom of Hasegawa's wing.

This is a simple conversion that will lend character to your Hasegawa 1/32 scale Junkers Ju 87 D or G kits.

Recommended.
