About Steffen Arndt (alpha_tango)
FROM: , GERMANY

I was born in 1974 and started modelling in the 80ies. The first models I remember are a MiG 21 F-13, Saab Draken (both 1/100) and the Tu-2 (72) all from the east German producer Plastikart. during my first years I built all kind of models mainly 1/72 and 1/100. Beside the mentioned Plasticart kits ...

Thank you Rowan! Especially for adding the information! I also slightly filed the edge of the engine mount cover as I found that much too sharp. all the best Steffen

Other than the couple of minor glitches, that looks like a pretty nice kit, and you've done a good looking build, Steffen. With all the attention the short-winged Ta-152 is getting from model manufacturers recently, it's a shame there aren't more examples to model. Guess one could do a conjectural what-if scheme based on the few examples that allegedly were deliveredt to frontline units very late in the war, though. Regards; Automaton

Thanks Automaton! As a kit the Ta 152 is quite nice, but besides the issues mentioned there is also the strange wheel bay. O.k. it has an engine plug (big plus) but no further detail there (firewall, MGs ammo boxes) and the fuselage halfs reach into the wheel bays, which looks very strange and is wrong IMHO (thus I did not add any underside pictures) all the best Steffen

Many thanks! I use acrylics for airbrushing my models. In this case mainly Gunze. The aluminium is Revell Aquacolor. all the best Steffen
