    Wow possum............. check the site out, me and Gera build them and posted progress on it..............but it may have got lost in translation!:grin:

    Over-all a good model, just try and keep the fuselage in the proper shape and things will fall into place.

    The Ju-52 was a transport plane, not a bomber. Good luck with your project.

    Ju-52/3M did have a bomber variant. I know that It was used in combat in the Spanish civil war and in the 1939 Polish campaign (might have been used as a bomber elsewhere but I am familiar only with it as a bomber in these two cases).

    Yeah........ they even stuck one of those hanging by a thread bellie guns like on the Ju-86! Guts........... man that took guts!

    When it kinda failed as a bomber then it became the truley excellent transport we know it as.

    I think the point, here, is that the FG version of the JU-52 is not a bomber.

    Actually, I think at least one version of the JU is a bomber. FG published quite a few variations.

    Possum, don't feel bad. when I was building the test model for the winter version, I glued the engines to the wrong wings. I remember building the old Airfix plastic kit of the Ju 52 when I was a kid. I glued the wings on upside down that time.

    Two of the FG Ju 52s are bombers. One from the Spanish Civil War and one from Germany at the time of the annexation of Austria in 1938.
