Here are some images of Monogram's 1/48 scale Junkers JU 52 transport. Manufactured from 1932 to 1945. It saw both civilian and military service during the 1930s and 1940s. In a civilian role, it flew with over 12 air carriers including Swissair and Luftansa as an airliner and freight hauler. In a military role, it flew with the Luftwaffe as a troop and cargo transport and briefly as a medium bomber. The Ju 52 continued in postwar service with military and civilian air fleets well into the 1980s. This is an excellent model in every way. Incredible detail and it assembled without any hitches. This kit is still around and one can get it for around $50 Cdn.
