That is a very nice plane for the first post of the day. Given the size of the plane, it feels a bit mean to score it as a 10mm vehicle, so I'm going to score it as 15mm. Or as two 10mm vehicles. The points work out the same.

From ClintB - Ju 52 (6 points)
A rather small post today just a single vehicle in 1/200th scale. As some of you may know I have a couple of 10mm Spanish Civil War armies. While I have a few land vehicles, I could do with a bit more variety, but numbers wise I have plenty. After all there were not so many in the war. But what I am desperately short of is 10mm Aircraft.
In fact this is my first (and only). This is a commercial airliner of the time and later saw action in ww2 as a transport plane supplying supplies to the front line at times but mostly for just moving supplies from one are to another.
It is painted in civil colours and is in fact a Zvezda 1/200th scale model kit. While I would like a Polikarpov, alas, I am unable at this time to source one in the right scale. It is of course a JU52 and in civilian livery. But it will be part of the SCW armies.
I could buy a Stuka or two, and probably will eventually, but aircraft for this conflict and at this scale are about as rare as hens teeth. So I will just have to hold on for a while longer. Oh well never mind.
