Trumpeter 1/32 Ju-87B-2

Recommended Posts

Hey Everyone,

 

I started work on the Trumpeter Ju-87.  I chose not to use the excellent correction set available and just go for it mostly OOB.  I did use the HGW seatbelts.  Mostly because after finishing the P-40, I was disappointed that I had rushed the cockpit and used homemade masking tape belts that looked kind of crumby...  I also decided to open the little cowl flap on top of the nose to improve the look of that area and I added some basic detail to the inside of the side intake.  Additionally, I picked up an MV lense for the landing light.

 

Thanks for looking,

Leo

Coming along nicely!

 

I still scratch my head every time I look at where they put that seam in the wing. It's not too hard to get rid of, but just seems like an odd place, especially when there's a real seam on both sides of it!

 

:popcorn:

I know, and I'm sure I didn't do something right that led to the gaps, but hopefully I'll be able to get them to disappear without ghost seams appearing later on...

Leo,

 

I don't think it was you. It looks just as I remember from my own build. I also think that I put the top side tighter together than the bottom. So, if there had to be a ghost, it would be more likely to appear on the bottom where it was less visible.

Same issue with the wings on the Hasegawa Stuka. Join at the same place. I usually glue the two top half pieces together to eliminate the seam, then the 2 bottom pieces and eliminate the seam, worry about the correct angles after joining the two halves which I let sit for a day or 3 to let the glue set up and the plastic firm up at the join.

That's a good idea! I wish i had done that on this build! I want to build the Hasegawa G-2 as Rudel's bird and I'll try that. I reread "Stuka Pilot" to get psyched up for this build and have wanted to do his aircraft for a while. Edited by leoasman
