1/144 Junkers Ju-52 'Airliner' & Photoetch Set - Eduard
When announced a month or so back, it did seem a little curious, however here we have the first in a possible range of issues for 'Airliner' Variants of the venerable Ju-52.

I think you all know about the Ju-52 so I won't dwell on that. However, D-2527 was registered to Lufthansa and was a tribute to WWI Manfred Von Richtofen and was used as a one of the personal transports of another WWI Ace although known more notoriously with his role as head of the Luftwaffe - Hermann Goring.
Painting this properly could be a task and a half ( link )
To coincide with the release of this kit Eduard are also to release an eye watering and finger boggling inter photo etched set (to be available at additional cost) to fit out the interior of the kit.
Available: January 2013

I do hope that this does not mean that the 'military mould' has been converted to the 'Airliner mould'?
