Late July 1942 eighteen Jeeps with SAS members began their initial attacks on LGs ( British term - Landing Grounds) landing strips. There were a string of these strips around Sidi Haneish 70 miles from El Alamein. During these attacks hundreds of German planes were destroyed but some were captured with little or no damage. The 601 Squadron became the owners of an Italian Air Force Stuka "D" from LG 13 and added RAF markings as well as the squadron code "UF". They used it from November 1942 until February 1943.

Junkers Ju 87D 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.

Hobby Master's 1:72 scale Ju 87 Stuka is constructed almost entirely from diecast metal, with plastic components in areas requiring fine details (such as antennas, pitot tubes and flaperons). The fuselage is beautifully integrated with the wing, with the only visible seam on the bottom. Crisp panel lines cover the surface of the model, which also features an all-metal braced horizontal stabilizer and detailed exhaust stack and engine radiator. The gull-shaped wings have metal spatted landing gear and separately applied flaperons with two balance weights near each wing tip. Variants include the Ju 87D with dive breaks and bombs and the Ju 87G tank killer with 20mm cannon pods.
