Junkers 87B-2 Stuka

#1
I made this Stuka last year for FliteFest Ohio 2018. I also made plans but I do have to say that they are not complete and you would have to be crafty to make it yourself. I had a blast creating and designing it with my dad. I am working on a second stuka for FliteFest Ohio 2019 with a scale cockpit, bomb drop, spinning dummy sirens on the landing gear, split wing flaps, and lots of bells and whistles. I plan to add a siren but I'm not sure how it will work out by using a whistle and basically a kazoo. Newer stuff is at the bottom. _DSC0001F.jpg _DSC0011F.jpg _DSC0249NF.jpg _DSC0255NF.jpg _DSC0293NF.jpg _DSC0298NF.jpg _DSC0294NF.jpg IMG_3221.JPG IMG_3235.JPG IMG_3158.JPG IMG_3125.JPG

Another awesome build, looks great!

Can’t wait to see this one fly too! I was there last year when you were showing your first to Josh... I think he was amazed as we all were!

Welcome to the family.
Looking forward to seeing more from you two (not that my current build list is lacking any!) 😂

I bet you could get a servo to turn on a speaker box thingy (no clue what they are actually called) for your siren.
Yea, what about that?!!
A smal midi player (you can get them as small as 1/4” square) set to a mercury switch set so that whenever it dives it played a clip.

I tried 3D printing a siren off of thingiverse (cause who doesn’t want a Stunka with a siren?!) but wasn’t having much luck.... maybe we are just over thinking this by trying to replicate the siren mechanically...

Great idea Spacefarer!! 👍👍

Man, that is one nice looking Stuka! It would be a great addition to the master series they're starting right now.
I think this Stuka is just too complex for a kit. The plans dont even have all of the pieces on them yet. But, I have other ideas for planes in the master series...

Soo excited. Man you could annoy the heck out of some people with an EDF and a kazoo...

(Evil laugh)

The Stuka has always been my favorite plane in a long long list of many.

Second is the EA6b Prowler. I LOVED watching them launch and trap on the Nimitz.

Your Stuka will go on my soon as I learn to fly list to be built. Hopefully by summers end.

I'm excited to see how it comes out! I will say though that this built is like a master series within the master series itself. I would be happy to help you along with the build for any questions when the plans are finalized.

Oh Im fine on the building skills. I have made models since I was like 8yrs old.

The flying of fixed wing is what trips me up for now.
