Just finished...














Built this because I hadn't done a 'What If' for a while and really wanted to reinvigorate my atrophied 'mottling skills' such as they are. In the end I'm quite happy with it, built really easily with no big issues, nice detail straight from the box including a perfect wee etch fret. If you're in to Luft '46 and 1:48 (or even if you aren't), go out and get one of these Hobbyboss Ta152's, they're cheap, easily available and look really nice when they're done.

Not sure what's next for 'What If'ing', maybe the new 1:72 Revell Gripen or another Rafale... Stay tuned, thanks for taking the time to look and or comment, please feel free to say anything at all.

Yeah looks real good mate, I think something like this could put me back on the right path.
Nice mottling skills, nothing wrong there.

That looks superb. I have a couple of the hobbyboss fw190/t152 kits and they are little gems. I've got the fw190 kanguru one (with the huge supercharger and exhausts) and a TA152c like this one except I'm kit bashing that one to be a seaplane with a central float and outriggers.
