    You must find it rather annoying doing anything in that room with the constant propwash all the time Nicely done model good eye for detail.

    Super model Dave, and I agree with you. JU-52's are wonderful aircraft, it would be fantastic to fly in one.

    Nice work I think I admire this aircraft for the fact it looks like it was thrown together during a drunken 'LET'S BUILD A PLANE !!!!!' party one night, and yet gave stirling service during the war.

    Hi Guys,

    Whilst never having the wonderful oppurtunity of flying in a Ju52/3, I have been fortunate to have been in, on and around a license built Spanish CASA 352 which is virtually the same, many times. The Aerospace Museum at RAF Cosford has a fine example in British Airways markings, and as a member, I regularly worked on and cleaned the aircraft. The corrugated skinning on the aircraft is fascinating, it's so strong!

    An interesting thing about the aircraft is how they synchronised the engines on start up. If you look carefully on the (opened) starboard engine nacelle in the pic below you can see a round mirror , about 5" wide, that is angled slightly forward so that when the pilot looks at it, he can see the spinning prop of the central engine and synchronise the starboard prop to the same speed by eye, not rev counter!! The port engine is the same, a simple and very clever way of avoiding the use of dials, electrical wiring or pressurised hoses, all of which can easily fail and require regular maintainance, that's German engineering for you!!

    Regards, Ned.

    Fascinating stuff Ned, thanks for sharing that with us. Great that you had the opportunity to go aboard the aircraft, and working on it you were able to examine it closely too...what a bonus! I was very lucky in that I was able to go aboard U-534 before she was broken up for "display purposes", and the several occasions that I did this remain some of the best experiences I have ever had with WWII related museums etc. The opportunity to view these machines so closely is fantastic, and not to be missed.

    Regards,

    Carl

    A few yrs back there used to be one at North Weald which I understand was the one used in Where Eagles Dare, it was in full Luftwaffe snow colour camo, i never saw it fly from there but you could see it from the M11 and across the airfield on market days, i think it belonged to a company called Aces High, we get many WWII aircraft fly from there but recently weve had a Vampire flying around
