Beefing up some diecast Stukas

Earlier this week, I picked up these 1:100 Fabbri / Italeri Stukas for my 15mm Western Desert collection. They cost £3.00 each plus postage.

I think they are very nice little models and they would pass muster as they come........but, I thought a bit more work on the paint job would make them fit with my wargames models better. I used Humbrol enamels over the existing colours. This is how they came out - upgraded model on the right.

The upgrade does look better. They are very nice models and a good price.

Although you could use them straight off, I definitely prefer your version.

Did you have to add the swastika decal on the tail or did they come that way?


Hi James,

they came that way.

I'm not a fan of the symbol. I have an Iron Cross medal but always display it with the swastika facing the wall.
