1/48 Hasegawa Ju 87G-2 W.Nr. 494113, Black <-+-, Stab/SG 2

The aircraft flown by Hans-Ulrich Rudel was painted RLM 70/71/65. The wing commander’s markings were painted black with a white border. The crosses and swastika were painted in the simplified fashion of the last months of the war. The six digit work number was painted black. The spinner originally painted RLM 70 was supplemented with a white spiral. The tail plane had two white diagonal lines, common on SG 2 aircraft. The left wing still had the yellow V. These served to identify Luftflotte 4 aircraft. Hans-Ulrich Rudel crash landed this aircraft in order not to hand the Americans an air worthy machine.
