Ju 87 Italy 2 by WS-Clave
Ju 87 Italy 2
The Ju 87 Stuka was a purpose-built dive-bomber which entered Luftwaffe service in 1935.  Over 6,500 Stukas were built, and they were highly accurate and successful when there was no fighter opposition present.

It had many unique design features including an automatic system for dive recovery, so that if the pilot blacked out during pull-up, the Ju 87 would level itself without intervention from the pilot.

The standard armament was 1 x 250Kg bomb and 2 x 50Kg bombs, with 2 x 7.92mm machine guns in the wings and one for defence in the rear cockpit.

This example is a Ju 87 B2 of 239 Squadriglia Italian Air Force 1942.

He 177 A-5 KG100 2 by WS-Clave
He 177 A-5 KG100 2
The Heinkel He 177 was a 4-engined heavy bomber which entered service with the Luftwaffe in 1942.  It had an interesting layout of double-engines driving a single propellor in each wing ‘pod’ which led to serious complications in the early development stages.

The He 177 was 70 mph faster than a Lancaster or Fortress and carried a similar bomb load, but rather than becoming a mass-produced success, relatively few were made, and the early design brief for it to double as a dive bomber caused huge problems too.

The He 177 continued in production until 1944, and was used against shipping as well as area bombing.  It was armed with 4 x 13mm machine guns, 2 x 20mm cannon, and carried  up to 6,000Kg of bombs internally or 3 x Fritz or Hs 293 glide bombs.

This example is an He 177 A-5 of 5./KG100 Luftwaffe 1944.

Hey man long time no see! Just one thing, have you considered opening a tumblr? Over there the military groups are far bigger than here, the community is pretty chill, and I believe you and your works would take off much, much faster in months that what you have achieved over here, hell I have seen people reblogging your stuff and getting hundreds of notes in the process.

Just think about it, DA has been on decline for quite a while, while tumblr doesn't seem to stop growing any time soon!

Are you still doing commissions, or are you taking a break to do what you want?
