“Ta-152 C-O” WW-II German Fighter.”
This is my 139th story that I’m posting here on “iModeler.” I purchased the model sometime in the summer of 2016, and with the writing on one of the photos it say’s I finished the model around late November, 2016. The price that is written on the photo was for my special model insurance.
WOW! I did not expect all the excellent “PE” parts when I bought the kit on line, however I used all of them. The photo’s show that there is next to no flashing on any of the parts, plus the fit was excellent. I give “Hobby Boss” a great big “Thank You” for making this wonderful kit.
I used aluminum tubing for my cannon & machine gun barrels and I crafted the seat belt/harness straps by using some of my old nylon ribbons with Waldron buckles.
I punched out the photo dials with my Waldron punch set then put the dials in the instrument panel.
In reality I was appalled at how easy it was to build this 1/48 Ta-152 C-O model, as I had built over 300 kit’s since 1977.
After fixing any surface flaws and sanding down the exterior of the kit to 3M’s 600 wet/dry sandpaper, using lots of clean water, it was inspection time (!#!?!^^).
I gave myself the “GO-AHEAD” to paint the model with the Tamiya paints that I have used for over 20 years. My photo’s show that I used 3 different color’s, however after 4 years, I don’t recall the names nor number’s of my paint. I gloss coated the model with “Future” then applied all the kit decals. Once dried, another overcoat of Future, and then I applied a light coat of Microscale’s dull coat.
There you have it, another model by me, which is my last venture in modeling.
I retired from everything!
