FirstLook

 

Cutting Edge's latest batch of decals have been designed for the excellent 1/32 scale Hasegawa Junkers Ju 87 D/G Stuka kits. Despite the large variety of markings seen on these late-war Stukas, there have been relatively few new decal releases. These two new sheets help redress that shortcoming.

This set comes with full-colour, double-sided letter sized placement instructions. The markings have been carefully researched, and include high quality illustrations

The specific schemes covered are as follows:

CED32082 - Ju 87 D/G Stuka Attack! Part 1

An image of the instruction sheet may be seen at the top of the page.

  • Ju 87 D-1, J9+CK, with temporary overpainted white winter scheme, 7./St.G 1, 1941-42. Alternate versions of the nose emblem are supplied for this option.

  • Ju 87 D-8, H5+Red F, NSGr.10, Frth, 1945. This is probably my favourite of all five marking options. The aircraft carries the yellow nose, lower wing chevron and ruffer of the late-war Southern Theatre. It also features exhaust flame dampers and spatless undercarriage legs. Spatless legs from J. Rutman Productions were reviewed here on HyperScale a few weeks ago.

  • Ju 87 G, (Bluemel) S7+BU, 10.(Pz)/S.G.3. If you are growing tired of tank busters finished exclusively in Rudel's markings, this will be a breath of fresh air. The yellow individual letter adds a splash of colour, and the black spiral on the white spinner is also of interest. The spinner spiral is included as a decal.


CED32083 - Ju 87 D/G Stuka Attack! Part 2

 

CED32083

 

  • Ju 87 D-1 T6+A Red N, "Brli," II./St.G 2, Russia, Spring 1942; finished in RLM 70/71/65 eith yellow wing tips, fuselage band, spinner cap and an interesting wedge at the back of the wheel covers.

  • Ju 87D-1 T6+Red D K, II./St.G 2, Russia, March 1942 in temporary white winter finish.


The decals are perfectly printed, thin, in register and with a minimum of carrier film.

Cutting Edge's new 1/32 scale Junkers Ju 87 D/G markings will provide some welcome variety for the finish of this excellent model.

Both Recommended.
