ENQUIRE ABOUT THIS ITEM...

'Trench Art' Junkers JU87 ‘Stuka’ bombers

A pair of highly unusual and skilfully crafted ‘trench art’ cast metal models of a pair of German Junkers JU87 ‘Stuka’ (or Sturzkampfflugzeug) dive bombers, created by resting soldiers or mechanics in their down-time from whatever materials they could find or
was available to them. Well observed with the instantly recognisable low wing, each model with a rotating propeller, and wheeled undercarriage
and highly-polished finish.

Hand engraved to one model, the words SICILY 1944.

Wingspan: 13 inches (33 cm).

Used by the German Luftwaffe from 1937 to 1945, the Stuka was designed to utilise the dive-bombing technique previously developed by the US Navy of swooping in at a very steep angle and delivering the bombs at very low altitude for maximum accuracy, before breaking away.

The distinctive ‘Banshee Wail’ of its sirens as it dived added another terrifying dimension.
