For this pattern you need to paint your own eyes and nose as what you need doesn't exist pre-done, so I started of by buying solid black eyes (clear eyes are ok too but as your painting over the whole eye it really doesn't matter, I also found them to be more expensive) and noses. The pattern asks for 34mm eyes and 27mm nose but I couldn't find these sizes in the UK. The best I could get was 30mm safety eyes (the biggest size I could get!) and 30mm safety nose (my only other choice was 24mm), and I got these from Cello Express via their website.
.
Once you have your supplies it's then time to paint them 🙂 and the pattern includes a tutorial on how to do this. Given my location I was restricted to what we can get locally and its often hard to buy online due to postal restrictions of what chemicals and liquids can fly (I.e could be very expensive to get here as you'd need a specialist courier). To paint my eyes we used Spray Acrylic paint in yellow, which I can highly recommend 👍 as it gives an excellent finish...much better than painting it on with a brush for example. We then painted the pupils with Humbrol enamel paints. To paint the nose we used Humbrol enamel paint too, followed by gloss varnish to finish. If we were to do this again we'd definitely get pink spray paint for the main painted area, as it looks much better.

They are fairly quick to paint, although you do need to leave time to dry inbetween coats and then at the end to varnish them. I'd suggest at least allowing a day or two to paint them and let them dry. I hope this helps 🙂.

    Airfix 1:72 Junkers Ju 87 B
[Time for Facts]
Ju 87 Stuka dive bombers were equipped with what the Germans called ‘Jericho Trumpets’. These were propeller-driven sirens mounted on the landing gear fairings or the wing’s leading edge. The sirens produced a loud screeching sound as the bomber was diving in for a strike. The horrific screams of these bombers caused panic and crippled the morale of enemies on the ground. But this effect was soon lost and whistling devices were fitted to bombs instead for the same purpose.
