    at least you don't have to dig a hole for a barn find, just find the barn
    Plus you can build the barn out of inexpensive Pine instead of using expensive Teak.

    The Ju 87 remains at Sinsheim shouldn't be forgotten.

    Let's not forget that the tropical Stuka in Chicago had a very comprehensive 3-D scan in 2015 when she was taken down from the rafters for "cleaning". I surmised then, and still do, that although the scan was done for "research and educational" purposes, the data could be very useful for a rebuild/new build. Note then even removed some parts for detailed scanning. Can't imagine they did all that for giggles.

    Here is the company's post on their project:

    I've figured it is a pretty safe bet that the data gained from that scanning work of the Chicago Stuka is aiding the FHC Stuka restoration. It has been reported for some years now as being under restoration to fly, and the correct variant of Jumo engine for it has been undergoing overhaul/restoration at Vintage V-12s.

    I'm a little confused by the comments from Neomek, since they say that they were scanning the aircraft "inside and out" but then go on to say that they scanned the exterior, cockpit, engine, and loose parts. I interpret that as no internal structure, although precise rivet line measurements can be matched to surviving engineering drawings in CAD software (similar to what is being done with the Canadian Typhoon project.)

    I do hope that the data can be put to good use in a restoration. The example in Chicago that was scanned is an R-2/Trop and the Flying Heritage Collection example also just so happens to be an R-2, so maybe.......

    Engineering drawings are thin on the ground for the Stuka as far as I know..Only way is to reverse engineer a wrecked one and create a new set of manufacturing drawings using CATIA or Solidworks..Its the engineering paper trail you need for stress analysis of parts.Ju87,s are built like a P40,split in top and bottom halves with longitudinal stringers.Most important structure is the cockpit tub and "Trager" assemblies under it for the outer wings.
