I have heard such conflicting reports about the accuracy of this kit. Pity.

Just an FYI - I'll be doing an addendum to this review in the near future, where I will compare the other options available in 1/32 for a Ju87 (Old Revell Ju87B, 21C Ju87B and the Hasegawa/Revell Ju87D/G) with respect to correcting the Trumpeter nose, prop/spinner, and spat issues, for anyone interested in that sort of thing.

Thanks,

Doug

Thanks, Doug. I hang out on the Large Scale Planes Forum, and several AM manufacturers are already looking at things to "help" this kit.

Hope that they do, or better yet that Trumpeter will fix and re-release this kit as it is so necessary for a good kit of this famous bird.
