Default A Lufthansa Junkers G 38

For many of us this aircraft is certainly unknown or completely forgotten.

In its time, in the 1930s, it was something unusual and fantastic with a wingspan of 44 mètres and its ability to carry 34 passengers in great comfort across Europe.

The B 747 is known as the "Queen of the sky" but we cannot ignore or forget what was done before.

More in the Custom Made Models section.
Check "Junkers G 38".

Jean Pierre.

Outstanding work Jean Pierre. And a fascinating history. I am sure most on this forum would have found the whole write up very interesting as well. I have many of Derek Baratt's little masterpieces.

Lufthansa had to start some where JP was this Aircraft #1? What an aircraft! I just read the history in the custom section of this forum. I see this aircraft wore the same name as the fatal air ship. Such luxury and massive wing surface area. Congratulations on your build.

There were only 2 aircraft made I believe. She has landed on the old Sofia Airport, Bozhurishte. I have some pics in my archive. Unfortunately I am not sure if it was a regular Lufthansa flight or a military transport.

Wow JP, Another masterpiece! How big is it in comparison to a JU-58 or a 737-800 on the same scale? Thanks!!!

Thank you all, I appreciate your encouraging words ...

Douglas DC5, I don't have a B 737-800 in my collection but I attach a picture showing the Junkers with a B 737-200.

Note that just like the JU 52 the outboard engines were not parallel to the fuselage but perpendicular to a wing spar.

Oh là là JP! That is a big aircraft. I want one!! I will see if Sergeii can make one for me. Thanks to you, my classic, forgotten, "what if" airliners collection is growing. I always wondered why the JU-58 engines were positioned that way. When I was in Speyer I saw the JU-58 up close and the engine positions "bent" outwards were really pronounced (what is the reason for this?). On the DC-3, it seems to me the engines are positioned inwards if one looks at it from the tail. Encore une fois, merci beaucoup monsieur!
