It 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.
The 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.
There 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.
The 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.
This 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?
The designer, Kurt Tank, was an aircraft designer and a test pilot. 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.
The 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.
I am interested in models of tanks, airplanes, ships, military figures, I build them little by little when I feel like it. I am also interested in the history of war. My starting is Tamiya’s Military Miniature series in elementary school.
From elementary school through university students repeatedly suspend and restart my modeling, it’s about 25 years of this hobby’s history.
Born in February 1970, I live in Tokyo. From February 2007 I was quietly doing a site called “Miniature-Arcadia”. It is being transferred to this blog with the same name from December 2016. My update pace is uneven, but please come to see me here occasionally.
