These resin replacement exhausts represent an improvement over the kit parts. The casting is perfect and the stacks are individually drilled out.

 

 

The exhausts for the Ju 87B are also suitable for the Ju 87R variant. These exhausts (pictured at the top of the page) are each cast with five full stacks and a half stack at the front to clear the shroud on the cowling. The exhausts for the Ju 87D/G have six full stacks each.

Each exhaust is attached to its individual casting block via a thin strip of resin. This will be very simple to remove with a few swipes of a scriber or a hobby knife.

 

 

Conclusion

 

These two new releases are well up to Ultracastís high standards. They are a couple of very simple accessories that will improve your Hasegawa Stuka, regardless of whether you are building a Ju 87B, R, D or G.

Reviewing these exhausts got me to thinking about how long it might be before we see some flame-damper exhausts for the Stuka from Ultracast too. And while I am on that subject, there would be some great potential for Bf 110 flame-dampers and exhausts, including the alternative late-war "straight" style dampers. We live in hope!

Recommended for anyone building a Hasegawa Stuka.
