This is my entry.

Main construction complete and first primer done. Needs some Mr Surfacer then I can get the paint out  ;D

Is that the faint hint of spats I see peeking out from underneath the wing?

I like how this is shaping up.

It's also something I had on my "list" to do a long time ago. But I will never do it (got rid of some 1500 models in stash). So I am glad to see you are doing it.

If you haven't already decided, I would favor the radial, to give it a distinct look apart from the Ju-87 Stuka. You know, the close cowl with the streamlined bumps for the pushrods. Kinda like a Henschel 123 monoplane (this was discussed in another thread).

Hi Craig,

Unless I'm greatly mistaken Chris is doing the P&W powered Ha 137 V2 (Olimp kit ?), at least that's what the photo leads me to believe.  ;D

:cheers:

It is the V2 John, but the Planet kit. Very nice and simple. The wing is one piece and includes the full undercarriage.

I do have both the Olimp kits in the stash, but 1 will be Hungarian and the other possibly Japanese, instead of the Ju 87 they actually got for trials.

She's now painted up, has the transfers on and just needs matting and a few final bits of paint, been an enjoyable build. As far as in-progress shots go I must be a member of Radish's accademy as well  :banghead:

If you're going Japanese, the company to use would by Kawasaki, given that Richard Vogt worked for/with them.  A lot of their aircraft showed his trademarks.

Well she's finished and I'm quite happy with her

Ha 137 of the "Stuka Kette" of the Condor Legion, Spain 1937.

Model is the Planet kit with the markings from a Fujimi Ju 87.

Nice kit and all I've added is the scratched bomb trapeze, 20mm cannon, pitot and aerial pole. I went with a single aerial rather then the wing tip mounted ones of the original V2 prototype as I thought they were a little impractical for active service.

I like the "pig" decal, too. In fact, as I watched this project coming along, I was going to suggest using the "Jolanthe" emblem. Good on you!

Strange you should say that, I was thinking of a Kreigsmarine one yesterday whilst looking at an Hs 123  ;D

Thanks Gents
