Unimax Forces of Valor 85330
Junkers Ju 87B Stuka Diecast Model
Luftwaffe StG 51, France, Battle of Britain, 1940

Junkers Ju 87B Stuka   6.25"   7.5"

The German Ju87 Stuka was the epitome of fear felt towards the German Luftwaffe. Although slow and under armed, the Junkers Stuka was one of the most feared light dive-bomber primarily because of a definitive gut wrenching siren whine as it swooped in to attack. Although both the Japanese Military and the U.S. Military developed dive bombers in WWII, only the Junkers Stuka was a successful land based dive bomber.

Junkers Ju 87B Stuka

Designed to function as a close support aircraft, the Ju 87 was first flown on September 17th, 1935. The Ju 87 had an innovative design that included automatic dive brakes under each wing—a feature that protected against the consequences of pilot blackout by ensuring recovery from an attack dive. Crewed by a pilot and rear gunner, the Ju 87 had twin 37mm cannons and a bomb that swung away from the propeller on an elongated U-shaped crutch. Its inverted gull wings improved pilot-to-ground visibility, gave the undercarriage a shorter height and made the Ju 87 instantly recognizable to its enemies.

Forces of Valor's 1:72 scale Ju 87 Stuka has a diecast metal fuselage, solid diecast wings and plastic components in those areas requiring greater detail. The top engine cowling is removable, and beneath it is a hand-painted inverted Junkers Jumo 211D engine with correct main engine support frames. There are dive brakes beneath each wing, and a 250kg bomb is center-mounted below the fuselage. Each wing can be configured with an external fuel tank or two 50kg bombs. Inside the birdcage canopy are a pilot and a rearward-facing machine gunner manning an M15 machine gun. Other fine details include slotted ailerons and flaps and a beautifully replicated radiator.
