Hi mates!!!
Here comes my new Ta 152 C-0. Kit from Dragon.Colors from Revell. The built was surprisingly easy.
My model shows the Ta 152 C-0 (V-7), W.Nr. 110007 at Sorau, Germany 1945.
The aircraft also served as a test carrier "Ta 152 C-0 / R11" from 08.01.1945.

Cheers...
Stefan

Hi Stefan

Lovely job! I've got a soft spot for the Ta 152. Dragon's versions tend to be overlooked these days, so it's great to see one looking so good.

All the best

Hi Stefan,
I'll 2nd what Rowan said both about your build which really looks quite good, and the fact that we rarely see the Dragon kit being built these days.

Hi Stefan,

one more really nicely modeled kit, you have build there. I like the minimum amount of weathering on this plane! Spot on!

Thanks for sharing!

Hallo Stefan, very nice work on a late war bird. Your paint scheme is nicely blended and looks great, weathered without going overboard.

Sind sie Rennrad fahrer?

Thanks for your comments, guys!!
After building the Dragon's Fw 190 D-11 I was surprised by the good fit of the Ta 152.
But a Goof is inside ..... Dragon forgot any kind of engine. After all, you can look through the open wheelbays into the engine compartment.

Ernest, I'm a mountainbike-driver.....

Nice work, Stefan! I'm waiting for some century my supplier to get the Dragon's Go-229, in 1/48. Meanwhile, I bought Revell's 1/72 to build it again!
Thanks for sharing!

Stefan,
Just went through your finished pictures, and I'm more impressed then the 1st time through. My only suggestion is that at least on my monitor all your pictures are about .5-.7 stops underexposed. The half plus stop would indeed make your build "pop" a little more from the background.

Thanks, guys!!!

Gabriel....yeah, I'm also looking for Dragon's Ho 229 in 1/48 but it seems that it's sold out everywhere.
Only the nightfighter is available.

Thanks for the note with the exposure, Joel! I will pay attention at the next photo session.

Cheers
Stefan

Stefan,

Very nice paintwork! Definitely like the exhaust soot and the wavy line on the wing, top work! What doesn't look right are the undercarriage legs angles, they look to far aback judging by the photos... but I can be mislead

Stefan, I can only second that but it's true about the legs. I wonder why nobody mentioned the landing gears before.
As I already recognized the same at your previous Fw builds they're far to straight up. They should go more inboard and far more foreward. So it harms the overall look as it stands way too tip-toe.
Comparing especially pic "9" you can see the difference here and here
Sorry, don't want to disappoint you.

Thanks for your comments mates. Yes, you're right with the landing gear. I will change the gear position.
But I think, it's typical Dragon. I had the same problems with the gear position with the 190 F-8 and the D-11....
