Default Photos of Rudel's Ju-87 G?

Does anyone have photos of Rudel's Ju-87G? I specifically am looking for photos of the spinner as I have seen versions with a white-tipped spinner and also one with a spiral on it. Any help much appreciated!

Don

Hi Mike -

Thank you! I am building the old Monogram kit, and it looks like the decal sheet is a hodge-podge of at least two of Rudel's Stukas - including his 1941/42 B-1. Here's the closest I could find online. The kit and instructions identify it as a G-1 model, but I believe it is actually a G-2 as it has the elongated wings:

Don,

Glad I could help. I built the Monogram kit as a teenager, around 1969-70. It was quite a treat for one accustomed to the occasional Airfix 1/72 kit.

Mike, here's a couple of in-progress shots - I still have some serious weathering and finish detailing to do.

This version has always been my all time favorite Stuka, I recall building and blowing up several of these when I was a kid...wish I still had one of them now.
Nice work Don.

Scott, it's the old 1/48 Monogram/Revell kit that they re-released a few years ago.

OK, I started to dirty the old girl up a bit - right now, she's probably 90% done:

Underside and a comparison size-wise with an OLD 1/48 FW-190. I think I did that one about thirty years ago...

In this digital age it is nice to see people still building real things.
