1/48 Italeri Ta 152 H

Gallery Article by Jens Gerber on Nov 19 2013



This article is my conclusion of the developments by Kurt Tank in WW II on the aircraft in the FW series.

This is the Italeri Ta 152 H that sadly does not come with the motor that was included in the original Trimaster release, but this is a re-release of the Trimaster kit from the 1980's complete with the Trimaster logo on the sprues.  I wanted to experience building this kit after the fun I had building the Fw 190G.  This kit does have some deep seams that I filled with stretched sprue and then smoothed over....otherwise the fit was ok pffft.

I painted the bird in the first step with Revell Enamel White, more than Surfacer replacement , but further work made me curious.  I then set up the RLM colors in layers, original Gunze RLM from the can , but added diluted layer several times.  I hope it is noticed the painted shades that are without any addition of black or dark tones.

As a conclusion I added the cannulae and clothesline and unfortunately and the PE ring antenna.  Before the decals I applied semi-gloss then the decals and again satin clear coat to finish my model.
