    Please, recommend me best paper plan for Junkers Ju-87, german airplane from WW2.

    It has to be little bigger model, to have many details and, if possible, to has instructions in english. I am now assembling V-1 Flying Bomb model, and after that, I will try to make this airplane.

    Also, give me some good links where I can find finished pictures of this model, and links where I can find what materials and tools I need for this model (what kind of paper, glue, some special instructions, and list of accessories).

    Thank you!

    Junkers Ju-87 'Stuka'

    Hi blackarrow,

    I did a quick Google image search and came up with these two rather simple plans:
    http://solidmodelmemories.bravepages.com/Zips/Maircraft/JUNKERS JU-87B STUKA.GIF
    http://www.fiddlersgreen.net/AC/aircraft/Junkers-Ju87/info/info.htm

    And here is the Google search for images: http://images.google.com/images?hl=...uggestions&resnum=0&ct=property-revision&cd=1

    However, this is a very well-known aircraft and I would suspect that there are better and more detailed plans available, for example on one of the R/C airplane modeling sites.

    Good luck.

    All the best,
    Bengt :rolleyes:

    The GPM winter camo Ju87 is nice.
    Maly Modelarz offers the tank-buster version. It's one of their early post-Soviet kits but it's very good--well designed and an impressive display model. Both are 1/33 scale. GPM also offers a Ju87 in 1/24. I have it but I haven't built it.

    Can you give me the list of Junkers Ju-87 plans, so I can decide what plan I will use to build this model with your recommendation? I found GPM and Maly Modelarz plans so far.

    I like GPM 1/33 Junkers Ju-87 D3, it is snow version. Is there any other plans?

    Also, what paper should I use for this model? I only have 80, 120, 160 and 200 g/m2 paper here. What you recommend to me?

    Large Scale Models
    There's 2 'B' versions here. There's a build thread of one of them here (the Fana kit is a pre-printed version of the first model downloadable from the first site I linked).
    Here is a build of an older GPM 'G' version.
    Here's another 'B' - another GPM kit.

    Probably I will choose GPM 1/33 Junkers Ju-87 D-3. I think that this plan is best I can find now.

    I found review about this plan on http://forum.zealot.com/t142890/

    Also, here is picture of eight plans for Stuka that I found somewhere on this forum... Seventh is probably mine :thumb:

    There is still problem... I can't buy this plan, so I have to print it. Because of that, please recommend me paper for printing this kit. Here I have 80, 120, 160 and 200 g/m2 paper, so I don't what paper should I use :cry:

    Thank you!

    There's a conversion chart on the link above.
    It looks like it converts to 180g/m2 - so I'd probably recommend 160 for most things.

    Sorry, I didn't see... 65 Cover = 180 g/m2.

    Anyway, are you sure that 180 g/m2 paper is enough strong for this model? I have also 200 g/m2, so I don't know...

    P.S You made one of Stuka model?

    6 lines.........

    1. The following is an explanation of the symbols used in the model:

    2. Blue numbers indicate additional parts that are not used in the main model.

    3. Areas with red numbers indicate places to glue parts.

    4. Areas marked with sissors symbol indicate cutouts.

    5. Parts with this symbol should be painted on the opposite side of the graphics.

    6. Edges with this symbol should be cut at an angle.


    Hope this helps!
