That FG Stuka is one of their best kits -after you darken it! I built one with an interior and working canopies in 1/72 scale:

If you want to use my interior you are welcome to it. If you want to build your own, then we can compare them.

Absolutely beautiful work, John! Far better than I plan on making mine!:D
As I've already got my start on my interior, I think I'll continue on that, but yours is fantastic! Did you scale down from another kit or is that an original design of yours?

The interior and canopy are my original work.
I look forward to your build - I'm sure it's going to be great!

Here is another picture that has the angle to show the instrument panel.

Absolutely beautiful, John. You should definitely offer your interior to FG. It raises the level of the kit to the next height. You should also send Chip the darkened version you've done, the bright green has always bothered me!

Unforunately, I raced to get this one finished without taking photos along the way. The interior turned out ok, not as nice as John's of course! I added machine gun ammo and such for the gunner, but the canopy was a tough fit and the rear section wound up skewed a bit.
It's done, sorry I couldn't get closer, better shots, but you get the general idea here;

While I'm not overly thrilled with some of it, over all I'm pretty happy with getting another Stuka for the Wall of Shame.

That's a pretty great little dive bomber. I really like the darkened colors. Much nicer than the bright ones from the original file.

WOW - that's fantastic! I understand how difficult the canopy is and you did a perfect job. Your build is simply superb!
Your coloring is way more better than mine - how exactly did you do it.
