This is not a conflict - just means that there is a need to adjust a little forward the position of the PropRot1 mesh in the hier him
Open your hier.him files with a text editor and replace the current entry
[PropRot1_D0]
Mesh PropRotA_D0
Parent Prop1_D0
Hidden
Separable
Attaching 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 0

with these lines
[PropRot1_D0]
Mesh PropRotA_D0
Parent Prop1_D0
Hidden
Separable
Attaching 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 1 0 0.105 0

Please help out a more-or-less computer idiot. Where might the hier.him files be found?
hier.him files reside in the Ju87A folder/3Do folder/Plane folder/Ju-87B-2 folder and are named hierA1,hierA2 and hierA2Spain.

Hoddyman, use Archie's skins - the default skin that appears belongs to the Ju87B2 whose mapping is different as there are new additional meshes.

Thank you. This is fantastic. Perfect. We couldn't ask for more. Just a few remarks:

I don't think that the "spanish" A-2 were some special version. They were just early examples of A-2. I am not sure if the wing bomb racks were added later in production or retrofitted later, when the -A series planes were in the stuka training schools.

My May 1938, Ju 87B-1 was already in production. So in fact, Ju 87A-2 should be at last in the plane_ru as 1938 plane, but the A-2 was already in production by 1937.

Ju 87As were used in action by the Hungarians, so I hope someone would make a campaign for them.

And a small gift for you....all of you that use the new pilots, they may have noticed that the gunner's head is missing...

Not anymore. Just overwrite and it should be fine.

The Spanish A2 was not a special version - just a A2 without wing bomb racks. 
As the bomb racks are an integral part of the Il2core Ju87B2 wing, I decided to make a "dedicated Spanish version" with new wings meshes.
The "condition" method that is generally used in java in such cases, gives an acceptable solution in the game but not in the QMB - see my [still unanswered :(] post here https://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,34127.0.html
I could also have made new independent wing pylons meshes and classes (but I got lazy  ;D)

Thanks FANATIC I was hoping someone was using the new pilots this fix works great,the only think you forgot to do in these hier's is update the prop rot position.

The Germans was eager to sell this plane to the Japanese, but the Japanese was not impressed by it. But they did build their own version of it. Many says the Aichi D3A is inspired by the stuka if not a copy. But wiki says this
Quote
In mid-1936, the Japanese Navy issued the 11-Shi specification for a monoplane carrier-based dive bomber to replace the existing D1A biplane currently in service.[1] Aichi, Nakajima and Mitsubishi all submitted designs, and Aichi and Nakajima were both asked for two prototypes each.
The Aichi design started with low-mounted elliptical wings inspired by the Heinkel He 70 Blitz. It flew slowly enough that the drag from the landing gear was not a serious issue, so fixed gear were used for simplicity.[6] The aircraft was to be powered by the 529 kW (710 hp) Nakajima Hikari 1 nine-cylinder radial engine.
The first prototype was completed in December 1937, and flight trials began a month later. Initial tests were disappointing. The aircraft was underpowered and suffered from directional instability in wide turns, and in tighter turns, it tended to snap roll. The dive brakes vibrated heavily when extended at their design speed of 370 km/h (200 kn), and the Navy was already asking for a faster diving speed of 240 kn (440 km/h).[7]
The second aircraft was extensively modified prior to delivery to try to address the problems. Power was increased by replacing the Hikari with the 626 kW (840 hp) Mitsubishi Kinsei 3 in a redesigned cowling, and the vertical tail was enlarged to help with the directional instability. The wings were slightly larger in span and the outer sections of the leading edges had wash-out to combat the snap rolls, and strengthened dive brakes were fitted. These changes cured all of the problems except the directional instability, and it was enough for the D3A1 to win over the Nakajima D3N1.[8]

Thanks very much for this missing version - Dreamk, she has sexy lines.
Archie - also thanks for your many wonder skins, that always accompany one of Dreamk's releases.
