I can here the groans from the Old Guard already. (Not another one).

So a little history while you wait.

The Junkers Ju 52 (nicknamed Tante Ju ("Aunt Ju") and Iron Annie) was a German trimotor transport aircraft manufactured from 1931 to 1952. It saw both civilian and military service during the 1930s and 1940s. In a civilian role, it flew with over twelve air carriers including Swissair and Deutsche Luft Hansa as an airliner and freight hauler. In a military role, it flew with the Luftwaffe as a troop and cargo transport and briefly as a medium bomber. The Ju 52 continued in postwar service with military and civilian air fleets well into the 1980s.

Hitler used a Deutsche Luft Hansa Ju 52 for campaigning in the 1932 German election, preferring flying to transport by train. After he became German Chancellor in 1933, Hans Baur became his personal pilot, and Hitler was provided with a personal Ju 52. Named Immelmann II after the World War I ace Max Immelmann, it carried the registration D-2600. As his power and importance grew, Hitler's personal air force grew to nearly 50 aircraft, based at Berlin Tempelhof Airport and made up of mainly Ju 52s, which also flew other members of his cabinet and war staff. In September 1939 at Baur's suggestion, his personal Ju 52 Immelman II was replaced by the four-engined Focke-Wulf Fw 200 Condor, although Immelman II remained his backup aircraft for the rest of World War II.

Yep, the side moulding is like a old wash board. I'll see if I can get a tune out of it later :laughing-rolling:

I've build Heller kits before when I was very young. There what you would expect from a old kit, some of the parts are very thick and the other areas are thin.

This kit the main body panel can bend very easy as it so thin.

Hi Ian,

I'm absolutely certain that my parents bought me this kit (or certainly very similar) back in the 1960's and I made a right hash of it - well something's never change !!! :oops: :oops: :laughing-rolling:

In seriousness Ian, have you any ideas or plans with this one? :) :)

I'm afraid I'm going to disagree with everybody else who says it looks a lovely kit. I reckon it looks like a real challenge !!
The decals look a bit past it too :?

Best of British Mustang !!!! :lol: :lol: :lol:
Cheers

Well your not far of the mark there Mark, if anything your spot on. Now that I've been able to spend some time trying to glue parts together, a great film came to mind.

A Bridge too far or in my case, A Kit too far (in the Christmas comp) ;) staring a real pain in the :obscene-buttsway: of a kit.

Yep your right Mark, the decal are a very sad state. But hopefully the idea I've got will hide the worst of them. :pray: :shifty:

So so far I've glued the wing half together, that was a mission in its self :twisted: How hard should it be to glue to piece of plastic together, well it took me at least 30mins each there's no locating pins plus the top half wanted the go upwards while the bottom section wanted to go downwards, :evil: :evil: :evil: :angry-banghead:.

So clamps, Imagebull dog clips and rubber band all other them just to get them to :pray: stick together. That's after the clamps kept flying all over the place.

Next up let's try and do the interior sections can't be to hard four bits. :twisted: no proper locating pins, no marks to show where the part go along on the inside of the fuselage :angry-banghead: :angry-banghead:

So I ended up having to tape all the parts together just to just the interior parts in the right place.

Photo coming next.
