W-34 Radial Passenger
W-34 Radial Cargo
These models in this package also feature Ski variants. The Junkers, because of its
ability to work in all climate conditions, was usually flown in harsh winter conditions
which required skis to be fitted.
Shown is the cargo model. With the engine off, the cargo appears beside the plane in the
Each model of the Lionheart Creations Junkers 'W' Series has a float version for water
landings. The pontoons were created from photographs in museum collections. There
were many types, but this model seemed to be the most used. The pontoons feature
animated water rudder linkages and control wires and high detail aluminum shine.
This is the popular and most photographed model, the Junkers W-34. Lufthansa
ordered a large number of these planes and they were soon seen flying from Berlin,
to Sweden, from Moscow to Iran, from Stuttgart to London. Many airlines around the
world ordered the highly reliable and powerful W-34, including Canadian Airways Ltd,
which had 8 of the W-34's, which helped to pioneer the great wilderness of Canada's
mountain ranges and arctic like countrysides.
This is the very famous Canadian Airways Ltd. paint scheme. These planes dared the
massive mountain passes and endless arctic like terrain of Canada's great
wilderness on a daily basis. Some of these aircraft exist today and can be seen in
museums in Canada. The metal 'Dura-Luminum' skins of the Junkers W-33 and W-34
made the aircraft impervious to the hostile environments of both hot and cold regions.
This is the rugged Bush plane variant. The later model W-34 became a huge
success in wilderness areas, being able to fly into remote locations with ease.
This model is the 'Cargo Bush Plane' model. The crank case Junkers cooling
shroud and radial cowling ring have been removed for easier daily maintenance.
The wide wingspan and powerful radial allow for great ingress to short runways.
Variations in paint schemes
There are other variants such as different Registries and war time models that are
also featured in this package. Here shown are Luftwaffe military paint schemes and
an American registered model, NX7465, 'Queen of the Skies'.
This is the point at which the Junkers W series took up the baton from the earlier F-13
model, making for a larger airliner. Originally meant as a large capacity cargo liner, it
quickly became used as a passenger liner instead, having room for up to 6 seats in the
rear cabin area. The passengers appear with the Spoiler key, (use the / key).
When you shut down the engine, the pilots disappear from their positions, wheel chauks
appear before the tires, and an antique European luggage carriage appears beside the
plane with some vintage suitcase luggage on it, ready to be loaded up.
Note on the L series long nosed W-33's, that the engine shakes ever so slightly. You can
see this in the exhaust stacks on the starboard nose of the cowling.
Note that this package contains 10 model variants
This is the famous 'Bremen', built early into the production line and almost a
prototype, this plane, registry D-1176, took her crew of 3 across the great Atlantic
ocean, 3,500 miles. This was the first aero flight from East to West, with Charles
Lindberg having just crossed from West to East only prior to their journey.
The 'Bremen' was given to the people of New York by the people and country of
Germany as a gift. The famous aircraft was then donated to the Henry Ford
museum and recently restored by Lufthansa by a team of professionals, and is on
display in Bremen Germany at their public museum, where you can view the
astonishingly well resurected aircraft in shiny, prestine condition.
Note the original landing gear, spoked wheels, and odd flair of the wingtips and
ailerons. This was a very revolutionary aircraft in her time, sporting an all metal
skin of Zeppelin's famous 'Dura-Luminum', a rugged form of alloy.
Bremen comes with extremely large fuel tanks for long flights. We recommend that
if you fly the Bremen on short hops, to lower your fuel levels to half or a quarter
Here is the standard model W-33, which was originally designed as a cargo plane. This
aircraft features a load out in the cargo hold that becomes visible when you click on the
Spoiler key, (use the / key). When you shut off the engine, the cargo appears on the
ground beside the plane, each case visible, showing the amount of cargo that one of these
planes could actually carry.
Lionheart Creations provide easy to use, labeled 'Layers' paint kits
in Adobe Photoshop 6.0 'PSD' format. The pack is the exterior of the
Junkers. The package is 64 megs, comes with basic instructions,
and also comes with Alpha maps for use with 'shiny' version paint
schemes, (military paint schemes would not use these).
