    Seller claims to be 1944 Normandy Stuka flap relic. That is what previous seller from France said.

    Came with the white info plate !

    But from what I can see on net, the fixtures do not match or do I need to see an earlier Stuka flap......

    Please see photo, just one at the moment !!

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    You may have a trailing edge from the edge of the wing of one of these aircraft... if you search the net, some photos give you the underside of the wing connections - they look similar. Unfortunately I didn't find any hi-res images. There are 2 Stukas in existence one being in Chicago at their museum, and the other at the Imperial War Museum I believe. Send some photos to each to see what you come up with. The Imperial War Museum has assisted me before with a Zeppelin piece I found to authenticate it...I've tried to attach an image showing the back edge of a Stuka wing and it shows several sizes of the rear of the wing. Neat find and hope it works out for you. If not a WW2 1944 Stuka relic then what ? Dug up in NormandyIf not a WW2 1944 Stuka relic then what ? Dug up in Normandy

    Thank you so far so good, if it is dark paint on the other side then it must be a Rudder trim tab Yes ?!! (one side would had have to be light blue to be the underside for a wing or tail) .......... BUT hold on what aircraft is it as well ?

    It is due to be delivered very soon and I will update with some more photos..........

    Please read above reply as well as not definate yet. JUST Seen the Stuka rudder has trim tabs, BUT I really need close ups from a real stuka and if possible not attached to the rudder. Looks promising as the trim tabs have parallel edges................

    The surviving Ju-87 in the UK is displayed in the RAF Museum in Hendon. This 'walk-around' video may help.

    Thank you very much, a fleeting glimpse of the tail and wings. Please post more focused close ups of the attachment points and when I get the relic I can better compare to possibly announce a result with new photos when I get it delivered. I am looking forward to a hopeful thumbs up, quietly confident for now !!
