Junkers Ju87 Sea Stuka

That's C for Sea Stuka, Just finished this one after along time sitting in the box waiting for the final touches this is Hasegawa's Ju87 C 'Graf Zeppelin'
I was disappointed that the wing fold didn't come in the kit, just some resin bits for the catapult parts and arrester hook, so with the help of the few pics I could find I had a bash at folding one wing. Details were made up from Evergreen plastic and wire.
It's a close approximation of the real thing but I had to wing it on the finer details, still looks close enough to me. Also added a practice torpedo from the Dragon spares box. I deleted the dive brakes, spats and bomb swing as this would have been a dedicated torpedo attack plane.
The kit also has the Aires cockpit, very nice , Quickboost control surfaces, unspatted under carriage and the guns bays just to liven things up a bit.
The markings are from the box and fictitious, had the usual Hasegawa decal woes too. The paint job is my version of Atlantic RLM grey, O2 and 76 just didn't look right. Paints are Tamiya and Gunze.
Now all I need is a chuck of Graf Zeppelin deck and a figure and the project is done.
It was a nice change to take a punt on an aircraft that never existed and throw some artist licence at it. I will be interested in your comments on the colour scheme and wing fold. Enjoy.
I dedicate this model to my friend and author of all this Luftwaffe alternative, John Baxter, and my mates at the Axis Eagles model club here in Melbourne. John hope you like her!

Cheers
Jamie

The only thing I would have done is to leave the wing gun cover closed on the folded wing, as the panel looks a bit odd hanging at that crooked angle.

Might have to change it. They did have leather retaining straps to keep them in place, though I could get away with that holding it on.

Thanks Rene.
