Historical models depicted in this page are from Italaerei (Italeri) 1978/79, except the Junkers Ju 87, which is from Airfix.

Junkers Ju 52 seaplane

The Junkers Ju 52, familiarly known as "Aunt Ju", was one of the most versatile and famous planes in aviation history. The seaplane version added even more versatility to this proven design.

Junkers Ju 86 D-1

The Junkers Ju 86 D-1 was originally planned as a passenger plane in the early 1930s for the German airline Lufthansa. But already in the first specification it was intended also as a medium bomber for the still-secret Luftwaffe, and this would be its actual role.

Junkers Ju 86 E-2

The Junkers Ju 86 E-2 medium bomber, equipped with two 880 HP radial engines, was an improvement over the earlier versions of this plane.

Junkers Ju 87

One of the most effective dive-bombers of the Second World War, the Junkers Ju 87 "Stuka" played a major role in Germany's conquest of Europe and contributed significantly to the campaigns in North Africa and Russia. Hailed as the supreme weapon by Hitler's propaganda ministry, the Stuka proved to be an effective dive-bomber against pin-point targets and its shattering scream became synonymous with the type during the Blitz of 1939/40.

Junkers Ju 188

The Junkers Ju 188 multirole aircraft was a much improved version of the Junkers Ju 88. Although many versions were tried out, planes of the E series were used in air battles, while planes of the D/F series proved most successful in far-distance reconnaissance.

Lavochkin LA 5 FN

Being an improved version of the earlier fighter planes LAGG 3 and LA 5, the Lavochkin LA 5 FN went into action in 1943 with a 1850 HP radial engine and two 20-millimeter guns, ready to match in combat the famous Messerschmitt Bf 109.

Messerschmitt Me 321 B-1 Gigant

The Messerschmitt Me 321 B-1 "Gigant" cargo glider had to be towed by three Messerschmitt Bf 110 or one Heinkel He 111 Z-1. Its successor, the Messerschmitt Me 323, was instead powered by six engines. These two aircraft were of the largest ones built during the war, together with the American B-29 super heavy bomber.

Waco CG-4A Hadrian

Together with the British-made AS 51 Horsa, the glider Waco CG-4A "Hadrian" was the backbone of the Allied invasion forces during the D-Day and the Amheim landings.
