    Hi, exellent collection, the details are great, thanks for showing them.

    As a matter of interest, my Dad was nearly killed by a JU87 in the war, it killed some of his mates and put him in hospital for just over three months.

    Revell make a nice 1/48 scale 111 with torpedo bomber option. You'll find one on e-bay.

    Hi raymond,
    Im sorry i didnt answer you before but have just read the thread again, my dad was inthe royal artillery and helped man A.A guns and search lights. There was a raid and action going on, a ju87 was hit and came down the beam of the light and would not pull up,
    as they ran it went into the gun emplacement and killed some of the soldiers and my dad was badly wounded. He was in Woolwich
    hospital for three months and then sent to light duties in some offices as a clerk. he went back to active service when fit,
    but was wounded again during the cause of the war.

    Hi Raymond,
    I suppsose with the speed of the plane coming down didnt leave them a lot of time to even think right, my dad survived the war but allways suffered from his back but one of them who never gave up. He was a great bloke and a good friend, but we lost him in 1972. It was his memorial day yesterday 29th, 37yrs it doesnt get easier i dont think.

    Dave.
