Dragon Ta 152H-1

Ta 152H-1, “Green 3” of JG301
I started this model (and about 10 others) about 2 years ago and finally got it finished. Finding time to build the past 2 years has been difficult to come by and thankfully my bench time recently seems to be more frequent! This model was built OOB with the additions of MDC instrument decal dials, Eduard PE seat belts and panty hose elastic nylon for the antennae wire.
I used Model Master and AeroMaster paints throughout; RLM 76 on the underside and drop tank and RLM 81/83 for the upper camo and gear doors. The Decals were pieced together from the kit and old AeroMaster extras and applied on to a gloss coat of Future Floor Wax. I used PolyScale Acrylic Flat as the final dull coat and then added some light oil staining on the fuselage and landing gear using an oil base burnt umber mix. The panel lines were highlighted with a finely sharpened 0.5mm lead drafting pencil. Chipping was done with a sliver Primsa Color pencil
For a DML kit, this went together fairly pain free and was a fun project of a truly sleek and menacing looking fighter.
