Hans Ulrich Rudel began his career as an air observer during the German invasion of Poland and became an Adjutant for the 43rd Aviators Training Regiment in 1940. He began training on a Stuka that he would soon become a master of. Since tank busting became his forte he developed the idea of placing two 37mm Flak canons under the wings. This design would enable the Stuka to destroy the Soviet tanks by attacking their weakest points, the rear where they were lightly armored. During his career Rudel destroyed almost 500 tanks.

Junkers Ju 87G 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 brakes and bombs and the Ju 87G tank killer with 20mm cannon pods.
