This is going to be my next project. A large scale Tank fighter... a Ta 152H-0, which I will be backdating from the Z-M Ta152H-1 kit. I am planning on utilizing a few upgrades including: 1. Henri Daehne Ta 152H-1 Resin Prop and Spinner 2. RB Productions Ta 152H Photoetch Cockpit set 3. Zoukei-Mura Photoetch Exterior Set 4. Zoukei-Mura Photoetch Landing Flaps 5. Zoukei-Mura Metal Legs The subject will be White 7, which has the W.Nr. of 150007. It was Ta152H-0 converted from the prototype designated CW+CG. I also have some other photos and a nice color profile of White 7 in Thomas Hitchcock's Ta152 book. I tried source a set of H-0 wings and was unsuccessful so I will have to do the modifications manually, which I believe are restricted to the wing bottoms. This will be my first large scale Z-M kit. I've heard many good things about the unique mindset that Z-M uses in designing model kits and it will be interesting to see how if fits with my no-panels-open approach to building. The instructions look like a vintage pilot's manual and offers a combination of rendered drawings and photographs... very unique! This particular boxing, which was the only Ta152H kit available at the time, is based on an anime series but includes everything in the original H-1 release including a full sheet of decals. The decals seem to be well printed and include decals for the instrument panel and the cockpit side panels. There is a smaller decal sheet with the anime-specific markings, if you want to go that route. Also included are what appear to be pre-cut canopy masks. I'll be taking a look at the kit sprues and some aftermarket goodies next.
I'm going to see if I can keep two builds going at once. I'm almost to the halfway point on the Corsair build and once the wings are complete, painting will begin and I think that is a good time to have another project going. This is the Hasegawa Bf109K-4 kit. I've not built this one yet but having built the Hasegawa Fw190D-9 three times, I feel a sense of familiarity as I look at the sprues on this kit. I'll be adding some aftermarket to this build including, in no particular order: 1. Eagle Editions 109K-4 Resin Cockpit Set 2. Henri Daehne 109G/K Resin Prop Set 3. RB Productions 109K-4 Wheel Well Detail Set 4. RB Productions 109G/K Erla Canopy 5. Barracuda Studios 109G/K Resin Wheels 6. AIMS Late War 109s Decal Sheet 7. Eagle Cals 109K-4 #32-74 Decal Sheet 8. Airscale Luftwaffe Instrument and Placard Decal Sheets 9. MDC resin ammo chutes 10. Eduard masks The aircraft I will be modeling is White 8, Werk Nummer 332884, which was captured in this striking color photo: It's represented in this profile painting by Claes Sundin: And also recently by AIMS Models on their Late War 109s decal sheet: Since I have Silhouette Portrait cutter, I will be using the AIMS decal sheet to produce masks for the major markings. The only decal I will be using from the AIMS sheet will probably be the "Gabi" inscription below the canopy. The Eagle Cals 109K-4 sheet will be available for stencils. I am going to try and use the AIMS and Eagle Cals decal sheets to produce masks for the spinner spiral.
Here is my recently completed Hasegawa Bf109K-4. I started it in April, took a long break during the summer and finally finished it eight months later. I added a bit of aftermarket stuff to this build including: 1. Eagle Editions 109K-4 Resin Cockpit Set 2. Henri Daehne 109G/K Resin Prop Set 3. RB Productions 109K-4 Wheel Well Detail Set 4. RB Productions 109G/K Erla Canopy 5. Barracuda Studios 109G/K Resin Wheels 6. AIMS Late War 109s Decal Sheet 7. Eagle Cals 109K-4 #32-74 Decal Sheet 8. Airscale Luftwaffe Instrument and Placard Decal Sheets 9. MDC resin ammo chutes 10. Eduard masks 11. Resin/metal landing gear replacements For the exterior colors, I used a combination of Mr Hobby Aqueous and AK Real Colors paints. The build thread can be found at:
Here is my recently completed 1/32 Hasegawa Fw 190D-9 build of the JV44 Dora flown by Heinz Sachsenberg known as "Red 1".
