Shape, Painting and Markings

アウトラインは良好です。塗装やマーキング類も素晴らしい出来栄え。カラースキームは基本色 RLM 70 / 71 / 65 上に RLM 79 がマダラ状に塗布されています。胴体両側面には機首から尾部まで大蛇が描かれています。

※RLM カラーは、基本色とカモフラージュパターン標準化の目的でドイツ航空省により第2次大戦前に開発されました。実機で使用されていた色は以下の通りです。
RLM 65 : ライトブルー (下面)
RLM 70 : ブラックグリーン (上面)
RLM 71 : ダークグリーン (上面)
RLM 79 : サンドイエロー (上面)

The outline is good. The painting and markings are excellent. The color scheme is painted mottled RLM 79 over the basic color RLM 70 / 71 / 65. The big snake was painted on the both side body from nose to tail.

*The RLM color was developed by the German Ministry of Aviation (Reichsluftfahrtministerium:German) before W.W.II to standardize the basic colors and camouflage patterns. The real plane used the following colors.
RLM 65 : Light Blue (Lower side)
RLM 70 : Black Green (Upper side)
RLM 71 : Dark Green (Upper side)
RLM 79 : Sand Yellow (Upper side)

The Latest Study

CORGI が本モデルをリリースした時点では(2002)、多くの文献が「蛇の色は白と赤」、「コードは T6+CP」との見解でした。 しかし2005年に「LUFTWAFFE IM FOCUS No.7」誌上で、「蛇の色は白のみ」、「コードは T6+DP」と発表されたのです。
以下の写真は新旧考証の違いを示したものです。

At the time of making the model by CORGI (2002), many references showed that snake's color as white/red and the code as T6+CP. But "LUFTWAFFE IM FOCUS No.7" showed that snake's color as white only and the code as T6+DP in 2005.
The following photos show the differences between the traditional view and the latest study.

The Latest Investigation

他にも「胴体に白帯がない」、「蛇の尾が最後尾まで続く」などの違いがあります。
詳しくは、文林堂刊行「世界の傑作機 No.152 ユンカース Ju 87 スツーカ」をご参照ください。

Besides, there are differences such as "No white band on fuselage" and "Snake's tail continues to the last part of the tail" and so on.
For details, please refer to the book "FAMOUS AIRPLANES OF THE WORLD No.152 JUNKERS Ju 87 STUKA / Published by BUNRINDO Co.,Ltd. 2013".

About Plane and Pilot

この機体に施された塗装は驚くほどユニークですが、このような塗装の場合カモフラージュの重要性は二次的なものとなります。 最も記憶に残るデザート迷彩のスツーカですが、蛇のモチーフが描かれた機体は2機存在することが知られており、それが同じパイロット「フーベルト・ペルツ」の乗機であったのか、またはそうでなかったのかは不明です。 1941年に第2急降下爆撃航空団第6中隊での飛行後、その強い個性を発揮して東部戦線で活躍し、「騎士十字章」と「柏葉飾り」を授与されました。 最終的に第151急降下爆撃航空団指揮官まで登りつめ、終戦を迎えました。

※上記解説文は本商品に同梱されていた「サーティフィケーション・カード」からの引用です。

Although often taking prominence, camouflage was of secondary importance when this striking and unique paint job was undertaken. Resulting in one of the most memorable desert Stuka liveries the snake motif was known to decorate at least two different aircraft, which may or may not have been flown by the same pilot, Hubert Polz. Flying the aircraft here for 6.Staffel of 2 Stukageschwader in 1941, Polz's individualism stood him in good steed as he went on to win the Knight's Cross and Oakleaves on the Eastern Front. Polz finished the war as Kommandeur of 1./sg 151.

Expectation

この蛇マーキング付きのモデルは私のお気に入りとなりました。 新考証による蛇マーキングが施されたモデルも欲しいところです。 ありがとう、CORGI。

I love this model with desert snake marking. I want to get the other model which has new snake marking by latest study. Thank you CORGI.
