Thunnus Posted December 26, 2019 Share Posted December 26, 2019 (edited) 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.
