Taking to the skies : Operation Sealion

The Germans so far in my Operation Sealion Campaign have been struggling. But finally the Luftwaffe have got their act together and can provide much needed heavy support for the initial landing troops and beleaguered Fallschirmjager.
Junker Ju87 B-2 according to the packet, in suitable summer 1940 pattern. I bought the model from a mate half finished. It's to my usual 'gaming' standard and I have swopped the spiky bits for metal to make it a bit more robust. It is full scale which of course looks massive but I may want it to be an objective at some stage. Those with eagle eyes will note it is currently bombing Uruk hai as I played a very enjoyable test game of Find the Halfling in preparation for Saturday.

  3. Nice work on the plane Matt. Bombing any fantasy game a good move in my book.

  4. Very nice. A Stuka is the only airfix model that I ever managed to get finished and painted, when I was younger - Although it ended up sporting a very nifty two-tone blue colour scheme with big, black swastikas on the wings. Not very historically accurate :))

    1. I tried to keep to 1940 pattern, but avoided swastikas as I know many find them offensive.

    1. It's a 1:48 airfix model, I plan to potentially use it as an objective on the ground so I want a compatible scale.

  10. Very nice model, and good to get double use as an objective.
    Best Iain
