IXO Models IXJ004 German Junkers Ju 87G-1 Stuka Dive-Bomber - Hans Ulrich Rudel, III/StG 2, Eastern Front, Autumm 1944 (1:72 Scale) "Guns before butter. Guns will make us powerful; butter will only make us fat."
- Reichsmarschall Hermann Goering, Head of the German Luftwaffe

During the early to mid-stages of the Second World War, the Stuka (short for "sturzkampfflugzeug" or dive-bomber) struck terror in the hearts and minds of soldiers and civilians alike. The Stuka was a rugged machine, designed to swoop down and destroy its target using 500-lb bombs or tear into them using 37mm flak guns mounted underneath the wings.

Pictured here is a 1:72 scale replica of a German Junkers Ju 87G-1 Stuka dive-bomber that was piloted by Hans Ulrich Rudel, who was attached to III/StG 2, then deployed to the Eastern Front during the autumn of 1944. Sold Out!

Historical Account: "Shadows in the Night" - Hans-Ulrich Rudel flew some 2,530 combat missions (a world record), during which he destroyed almost 2,000 ground targets (among them 519 tanks, 70 assault craft/landing boats, 150 self-propelled guns, 4 armoured trains and 800 other vehicles; as well as 9 planes [2 IL-2's and 7 fighters]). He also sank a battleship, two cruisers and a destroyer. He went on to become the most decorated soldier in Germany. The combination of a finely detailed scale model, and the markings of an historical fighter ace's plane, makes this a highly prized asset in any model aircraft collection.
