HELLO THERE!(´･ω･`)fellow aircraft and LEGO enthusiasts!
This is my attempt of recreating the famous full metal plane, JU 52 in LEGO.
The Junkers Ju
52/3m (nicknamed Tante Ju (Aunt Ju or Iron Annie)
was a German transport aircraft manufactured from 1931 to 1952 developed
by Hugo Junkers. It was the first of its kind and therefore played a key role
in aviation history
The Ju 52 continued service
into the 1980s. The aircraft has continued to be used well beyond that date for
purposes such as sightseeing.
The fuselage was formed from
duralumin spars with
a corrugated surface that provided torsional stiffening. A port-side
passenger door was placed just aft of the wings, with windows stretching forward
to the pilots' cockpit. The
main undercarriage was
fixed and divided; some aircraft had wheel fairings, others did not. A fixed tailskid, or a
later tailwheel, was used. Some aircraft were fitted with floats or skis
instead of the main wheels.
This model was inspired by the
Lufthansa JU 52 D-AQUI.
Working rudders and flaps
I hope I could awake some interest with this model and maybe one day by the
help of your support we can grab one these of the shelves of a Lego store. (^-^)
