The Junkers Ju 52/3m (nicknamed Tante Ju ("Aunt Ju") and Iron Annie) is a transport aircraft that was designed and manufactured by German aviation company Junkers.
The Ju 52 was in production between 1931 and 1952. In a civilian role, it flew with over 12 airlines, including Swissair and Deutsche Luft Hansa, as both a passenger carrier and a freight hauler. In a military role, large numbers flew with the Luftwaffe, being deployed on virtually all fronts of the Second World War as a troop and cargo transport; it was also briefly used as a medium bomber. Additionally, the type was deployed by other nation's militaries in conflicts such as the Spanish Civil War, the Chaco War, and the Portuguese Colonial War. During the postwar era, the Ju 52 had a lengthy service life with numerous military and civilian operators; large numbers were still in use by the 1980s. Even in the 21st century, several aircraft have remained operational, typically used for purposes such as heritage aviation displays and aerial sightseeing.
The block model has many movable components such as rotating wheels with rubber tyres, movable propellers and ailerons. Openable doors to the transport compartment and the cabin allow the pilot and German parachutist (FallschirmjÃ¤ger) to be placed inside. The block model was produced in the painting used by the Luftwaffe during the landing in Crete. It is a great toy for all the youngest aviation enthusiasts. Thanks to the faithfully reproduced proportions and details of the aircraft, the model will be a perfect decoration for every collection of young and adult history and aviation enthusiasts.
