Many years ago I make in 1/72 scale this little dive bomber with pieces of many broken planes. I hope you like.

Right down to the swinging bomb cradle-ladder-thingey....and how is it that your models made from broken bits look so much better than my best Tamiya kit, hmmmmm????

I am your new, biggest fan.

I'm trying to make something futurist, but ever make a real disgust...probably one day make something modern.
Thanks

Really is a Macchi 202 with a upper bigger wing and a big flaps to dive in the two wing. Also have a big rudder surface. I think this formula are more agile than the Stuka although probably more slow.
Thanks
