FOCKE-WULF TA152 C-1 HOBBY BOSS 1/48 BUILD AND PAINTING TO FINISH

FOCKE-WULF TA152 C-1 HOBBY BOSS 1/48 FINISHED WORK AIRCRAFT GERMANY

FOCKE-WULF TA152 C-1 HOBBY BOSS 1/48 MAKINGThis time, I will make the Hobby Boss Focke-Wulf Ta152. It was put into practical use just before the end of World War II and the number of production is not so many. There are many types.

FOCKE-WULF TA152 C-1 HOBBY BOSS 1/48 MAKINGIt has a seat belt, a pedal, an antenna, and various etched parts.

FOCKE-WULF TA152 C-1 HOBBY BOSS 1/48 MAKINGIt is good that the seat belt is attached with etched parts, the pedal in the cockpit is also etched parts, but both of them are quite oversized. The material of the photo-etched parts is soft and easy to fit on the sheet. The reproduction is more accurate with the Finemolds separately released.

FOCKE-WULF TA152 C-1 HOBBY BOSS 1/48 MAKINGIt is appreciated that decals are included for both side panels and cockpit panels.

FOCKE-WULF TA152 C-1 HOBBY BOSS 1/48 MAKINGThe panel is molded with unevenness, so if I use the decal fit, it will look good.

FOCKE-WULF TA152 C-1 HOBBY BOSS 1/48 MAKINGThe cockpit and engine were built in. I can’t see the engine, so why don’t I just close it? => I found out later, actually, I can see it from below, it’s embarrassing!

FOCKE-WULF TA152 C-1 HOBBY BOSS 1/48 MAKINGI can see the meter a little when I look into it.

FOCKE-WULF TA152 C-1 HOBBY BOSS 1/48 MAKINGThe exhaust pipe of the engine is also closed, so I opened it lightly using a motor tool although there are many. I think I don’t have to dig so deeply because I paint it black.

FOCKE-WULF TA152 C-1 HOBBY BOSS 1/48 MAKINGI don’t know if it’s because it’s an old kit, but the muzzle of two antiaircraft guns on the nose is not open, so I opened it with the tip of a design knife.

FOCKE-WULF TA152 C-1 HOBBY BOSS 1/48 MAKINGIt is equipped with antiaircraft guns stored in both wings.

FOCKE-WULF TA152 C-1 HOBBY BOSS 1/48 MAKINGThe landing gear compartment is connected to the fuselage. I don’t think this is the right structure for the actual aircraft, but I wonder what it is. Something is wrong. And I wonder if the tire can be stored properly because it is too thin. I see the SWS Ta152 longer wing, compared to that, this model is too omitted. Looking at the example of the Dragon kit, it seems that the Dragon’s reproduction is higher. Both of them are released around 2011. Overseas reviews say ” It’s a Great Kit!!” I wonder if it’s true.

FOCKE-WULF TA152 C-1 HOBBY BOSS 1/48 MAKINGI have finished most of the assembly. The Pitot tube seems to break during painting, so I remade it with brass pipe and brass wire.

FOCKE-WULF TA152 C-1 HOBBY BOSS 1/48 PAINTINGI’m using an airbrush, blew black and white as a primer.

FOCKE-WULF TA152 C-1 HOBBY BOSS 1/48 PAINTINGNormally, the underside of the fuselage blows, and the next process, but this fuselage seems to have a silver unpainted area. And a very large percentage. Masking is in the process now.

FOCKE-WULF TA152 C-1 HOBBY BOSS 1/48 PAINTINGIt’s not that large, but on the underside of the plane, there are silver areas and camouflaged paint on the top, as well as sky-blue areas. The painting process is quite hard.

FOCKE-WULF TA152 C-1 HOBBY BOSS 1/48 PAINTINGThere are some troublesome parts like mottling paint only on the tail. The German airplane somehow requires the skill of airbrush control. If you have three airbrushes, you can recover from a failure. The disadvantage is that it takes 3 times more effort to clean up.

FOCKE-WULF TA152 C-1 HOBBY BOSS 1/48 PAINTINGI pasted the decal. It was a little dry and hard, but I was able to attach it safely.

FOCKE-WULF TA152 C-1 HOBBY BOSS 1/48 FINISHED WORKThe Focke-Wolf Ta152 is now complete. It was named Ta after Kurt Tank, the chief designer. The C-1 is a type in which the main wings are cut down and increase the engine horsepower.

FOCKE-WULF TA152 C-1 HOBBY BOSS 1/48 FINISHED WORK FOCKE-WULF TA152 C-1 HOBBY BOSS 1/48 FINISHED WORKThe armaments are two 20 mm machine guns on the nose and two 20 mm machine guns on both wings, a total of 4 guns. The propeller shaft is also equipped with a 30 mm motor cannon and is heavily armed. Production was scheduled to begin in March 1945, but only a few units have been completed.

FOCKE-WULF TA152 C-1 HOBBY BOSS 1/48 FINISHED WORKThis kit can be selected from two types, with the engine cowl open and closed. I heard that the engine cowl opens when the engine is running in the parked condition or taking off, so I chose the condition with the engine cowl flap closed because the pilot is not on this time and the engine is normally stopped. After installing the parts, was it better to open the flap?

FOCKE-WULF TA152 C-1 HOBBY BOSS 1/48 FINISHED WORKI used a fishing line for the antenna wire.

There’s speculation that the VH and EY markings were made when he flew on December 13, 1944, and ran away after encountering two enemies P-51 Mustangs. It seems that only a few of them were made, so there aren’t many documents.

FOCKE-WULF TA152 C-1 HOBBY BOSS 1/48 FINISHED WORK FOCKE-WULF TA152 C-1 HOBBY BOSS 1/48 FINISHED WORKThere was a part of silver paint on the underside of the aircraft. I think silver is rare for German planes.

FOCKE-WULF TA152 C-1 HOBBY BOSS 1/48 FINISHED WORK FOCKE-WULF TA152 C-1 HOBBY BOSS 1/48 FINISHED WORKThe overall width of the H type is about 3.5 m larger, so it may look good with its long wings. I’d like to try to make an H type someday. But I’m satisfied with this kit of German camouflage paint. The kit itself was easy to make because there were not so many parts and parts are matched well.
