This is my rendition of “Green 4”, the TA-152H-0 now residing in the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy restoration facility in Virginia, USA. The wonderful Zoukei Mura kit, which is a big improvement over the original issue H-1. I just added rivets, masks, and a custom blend of Tamiya paints for RLM 76, 81, 82, and 83. Hope you like it, and Happy New Year!
Cheers,  Tom

Very impressive build, Tom! Exceptional, in fact. May I publish it on the website?

Matt, thank you! These reviews capture the changes: http://www.largescal...ew.php?rid=1709
http://forum.largesc...wulf-ta-152h-0/

I really like that instead of a reboxing, many of the details have been improved, and the kit is molded in grey instead of multiple colors. The fit overall is exceptional; I only had a slight challenge with the wing panels. I do love the ZM kits; you can tell they are made by modelers for modelers. I just got the DO 335; it is a fantastic kit, but I wish only the lights and canopy were transparent.

Cheers, Tom

Emil,

Thank you, I appreciate it! I cut out the EagleCals decals and used the outline as a stencil to apply RLM 02 markings.

Cheers, Tom
