Very few aircraft can be truly said to strike terror in a population more than the Stuka. The scream of the siren was intended to do exactly that!
The Black Horse Stuka is a near to scale replica of the Ju-87B-2 variant, representing an aircraft operated in Austria in 1943. Some compromises have been made to model construction/flying but the general outline is fairly close to scale, as is the colour scheme.
Construction is balsa and ply throughout, built using unique factory jigs and covered in printed vinyl. The cowling is tough but light GRP and easily swallows most engines and their muffler from view.
Just like the smaller version, she has that amazingly scale outline and colour scheme but an even better wing loading, making this model really docile to fly but with real 'presence' in the air. The highly effective flaps and ailerons ensure full control at all speeds yet impart an amazing ability to resist tip stalling. An unexpected trait shared by its smaller sibling.
Inside those huge scale spats is a tough, steel, sprung undercarriage, ideal for soaking up bumps on the typical model flying field. Up in the cockpit there is a detailed instument panel and an authentic looking, hand-painted pilot.
