Academy Ju 87 Stuka G-2 Kanonenvogel

Academy's 1/72 scale Junkers Ju 87G-2 features the longer-span wing and two 37mm anti-tank guns slung under the wings. The kit looks impressive in the box with its very crisp, finely engraved panel lines, thin clear parts (two canopies included, one multi-part) and decent detail, especially in the cockpit which includes a nicely rendered radio set. The underwing 37mm cannon pods are especially well done. As might be expected in this scale, some of the more subtle elements are oversimplified. These include the "Zwilling" twin machine -guns in the rear of the cockpit and the hinge arrangement for the flaps/ailerons. Cockpit straight out of the box with the addition of some etch rudder pedals.
The finished model is here
