This detail set from Aires features a complete resin and photo etch cockpit for the Ju 87D/G Stuka from Trumpeter. 

This is a very comprehensive set that gives you a full replacement for the pilot and rear gunner cockpit areas.  You get crew compartment floors and sidewalls that are loaded with detail and all that is further enhanced with added photo etch detail parts to give a delicate final look to your crew compartment.  And of course that wonderful rear facing gun is also included in this set.

You will be required to fold the photoetch in this set, but if you have one of the Hold & Fold photo etch benders from The Small Shop, then this will be an easy process.  They have a variety of benders for sharp corners as well as rounded corners and in many different sizes.

All scales can be improved with added cockpit detailing, but 1/32 gives you plenty of room to added detail that can be easily seen.  With the near endless glass canopy in the Ju87, there is ample ability to see all that wonderful crew compartment detail. 

You can purchase this and other fine resin detail items directly from Aires or from the many retailers that carry their products.
