Thanks kdahlhaus this build is very challenging. My planes come out pretty nice but my build logs aren't as informative or presented as nice as the others i have seen in this forum. Lol

Teddy Ong yes i will do as much detail with bombs and other hardware as i can. At the moment electronics then cover the rest if the fuse. Trying not to let the fuse twist or torque while doing so.
i did see another paint scheme i liked on a video it was a black and white video so not sure of colors . The Stuka was in snow covered Pomerainia .

Wow, loving this! You really captured the look. Hope it flies as well as it looks. My last plane that I scratchbuilt was a Bf109 and I was so proud of it. First flight lasted about 2 seconds and then....total destruction. I wish you all the luck!!

Thanks Chris!! Havent heard from you in a good while. It should fly nicely it has dihedral out the wazoo, airfoil and some positive incidence in the wing. Weight is gettin up there though. I built the landing gear to withstand some weight and Hot landings.... We will see. As usuall i cant wait to fly it! I looked through your pics i didnt see the 109 but i do remember the eindecker you built some sweet planes!

3M 77 spray glue is what I use. I have a old can. Apparently they reformulated it since and it may or may not melt the foam, so please test first if you get a new can.

nose section


Vent and radiator. I have ordered another prop 116-3 blade and a bigger nose spinner. From 2" - 2 1/2". This plane is a little bigger than i first thought. It weighs in at 35ozs. Everything included but paint. Heavy sucker gonna fly fast and land hot!

flaps and ailerons


From pics i see the flaps and ailerons on the Stuka are lower than the wings trailing edge. Offset any one have any input on the hinges and placement of the control surfaces. I have bought Dubro E/ Z Hinges

Anyone have experience with the offset Flaps and ailerons? The Stuka had airbrakes?? Not familiar with. Anyone's input greatly appreciated

I'm not an experienced modeler but i would build the ailerons around a thin dowel and offset them form the wing using thin plastic like you can get from cutting up gift cards
