Review Type:



A good selection of well-printed and -captioned photos, useful ID tables and nice colour profiles...


None noted except for my personal gripe about the use of ‘thru’ instead of ‘through’


A valuable addition to Ju87 history and a source of ideas for the modeller.

48 glossy pages of A4 paper in a glossy card cover allow excellent reproduction of B&W photos and the colour profiles.



Starting with brief historical outline of the Ju87’s development and use, there is a table of common Stuka four and five character codes, and representative units they served in. A short dissertation on Stuka camouflage is followed by a table of Geschwader/Stab identification colours, and similarly for Early and Late War Staffel IDs.



The remaining 41 pages consists of dozens of clear well-reproduced B&W photos, many from private collections, each with a useful two to five line caption. Interspersed throughout are some excellent colour profiles by Steve. The coverage runs from the early ‘A’ types in three-colour  schemes right through the ‘B’ , ‘D’ and ‘G’ variants to the end of the war.



Several shots are of crashed or surrendered aircraft.

This is a valuable addition to Ju 87 history and a source of ideas for the modeller.

Thanks to Eagle Editions for the sample.
