Stuka Aluminum JU-87 B1 W. Nr. 5611-Aces In Action: The Workshop of Artist Craig Tinder

I tracked down a suitably large piece of Stuka aluminum for the project "Eagle of the Eastern Front". This panel comes from the port wing (underside) and still contains a 90% of the original RLM 76 (Light Blue) paint. The panel comes from the aircraft JU-87 B1 Stuka W.Nr. 5611; II/StG1. The aircraft was lost near Juchnow (Yukhnov) in Kalouga area on 18 April 1942. A somber reminder that war is hell and the sacrifice these pilots made will not be forgotten.
