1/48 Ju-87 kriegsmarine kits out there
Posted by Tankluver on Tuesday, September 10, 2019 9:01 PM

I’ve been wanting to build a kreigsmarine Stuka Belinging to the Graf Zepplin for awhile now but i can’t seem to find one in 1/48. Can someone point me in the right direction or a good kit to start with then make adjustments to? Ive seen one kit but it was in 1/144 and was just the  resin parts to make the wings foldable. 

Thanks in advance!

I believe hasegawa did a Ju 87C, but as far as i know thats the only one. But i think its long out of production.

I have been after a conversion or kit of this variant in 72nd scale for years but nothing yet. You would need an 87B as a base kit.

Im not as technical with planes as i am with tanks so this will be a long study. Thank you for helping!

It would depend on how far you want to go. If your not worried about having the wings folded, then simply adding an arrestor hook would do. having looked at both types i can't see any other differance.

This is the hase kit. You might still be able to find it on e-bay.

I'd like to do one of each, so i am thinking of scratchbuilding, but that will be some way off. Odd thing is that peddinghaus do decal for a 72nd C but there is no kit for it.

thats interesting, I’d like to do a diorama of one or two like you said on a carrier deck. Since we’re on the subject, was there a certain variation of the BF-109 that would have to be used on the graf zeppellin

First, you do realize the Graf Zeppelin was never operational? The navalized version of the 109 was the Bf-109T, derived from the Bf-109E. About 70 were built in the end, and saw training and some other use. The Messerschmitt Me 155 was a later design, as it was realized the Bf-109T would be useless as a fighter by the time the carrier would be in service. The design bounced around eventually to Blohm und Voss as a high altitude interceptor for B-29s...needless to say, this project went nowhere as well.

Yes, the 109T. There are a few kits out there in 72nd, not sure about 48th.

Yes i realize that the graf zeppelin was never an operational ship, it was continiusly started and stopped. This is more of a what if build since those seem to be the thing now a days. But it’s currently a subject that’s peaked my interest in recent months.

There are several versions of the BF109T-1/T-2 from Hasegawa, Academy, and MPM. Check eBay, they range from $15 to $50.
