I'm considering a foray away from armor and into an airplane. I'd like to know in your opinions, what is the best Stuka kit out there in 1/48 scale or larger?

Thanks,
Holdfast

Hi bebe,
In 1/48 the Hasegawa Stuka, they do the B, D and G models. I've built 1 B Trop and am in the process of building a second, I also have a G. Revell have issued the B under their own label. It is a very good kit, OOB, The only thing that you might want to tackle is the dipiction of the aileron/flap linkage. The G model is similar plus the extended wings need care I believe. I don't know of any 1/32 but Airfix did a 1/24 scale, which my brother built, a long time ago, it was awsome. I haven't personally seen any other Stuka models so I can't comment. :-)
