Description

 

Here are five pictures of the Focke Wulf Ta152 V6 in 1/48th scale. This aircraft represents the first prototype of the Ta 152C at Sorau, Silesia in December 1944.

The kit is based on the Italeri Ta 152H with Landing Zone conversion set. This set consists of an one piece resin nose (molded with air intake), propeller blades, spinner and one piece wing. All these parts seem to be molded from Trimaster's Ta 152C parts. I used only the nose.

The spinner comes from Tamiya's Fw190D-9 with a small tube to represent the nose barrel. Propeller blades come from Eagle Parts conversion kit for a Fw190D-12/13. I have just sanding blades to obtain pointed tips.

The wing is a mix with Ta152H for the inner half (containing flaps) and Fw190D-9 for the external. I used plastic and filler to obtain the correct chord of this external part.

Cockpit and wheelwell are detailed with Eduard photoetched parts for the Ta152H.

The paint scheme is classic with RLM 75 Gray Violet, 83 Dark Green and 76 Light Blue with natural metal on lower surfaces. Paints are mixed from Humbrol range. Decals come from Aeromaster for crosses and Superscale for letters. The kit is finished with acrylic satin varnish from Aeromaster.

I have also added a picture of the engine of this aircraft, the DB605. It's a very fine Aires kit.
