    Focke Wulf Ta152H-1 Green 9 Flown by Ofw. Willi Reschke, Stab/JG301 Favourite Aircraft of all Time GB

    User Name : Wayne Little
    Category : Non Competing Judge
    Entry : Focke Wulf Ta152H-1 Stab Flight of JG301 April 1945
    Kit : 1/32 Zoukei-Mura Super Wing Series No.2

    Accessories : Zoukei-Mura Etched Cockpit Set (In collaboration with Eduard)

    ONE of my All time favourites along side the Fw190D-9 and Mitsubishi Zero….

    The model will depict Green ‘9’ W.Nr.150168, It is the only known Ta152H-1 where a tactical number and Werk Nummer can be established, and linked to a particular pilot, in this case Oberfeldwebel Willi Reschke whom reportedly claimed 2 Yak-9 fighters on the 24th April 1945, this aircraft being one of several Ta152’s flown by Ofw. Reschke during the months of Feb - April 1945.

    The Ta152 was put into service with III/JG301 undergoing “Operational testing”, initially provided with
    H-0 Pre-production series aircraft.

    “Green 9” would be one of the very few recorded examples of H-1 production aircraft to become operational, flying as part of the STAB of JG301 based at Neustadt-Glewe during April 1945.

    The Ta152H was the Final operational Fighter issued to JG301, although few in number, and with a very short lifespan of only a few months, they seem to have found their place in history as arguably one of the finest Piston engine fighters of WW II…..

    It's gonna look beautiful Wayne. In 1/32nd scale that long wing is going to eat up a lot of space on the display shelf. :)

    Hi Wayne, I remember reading on Military Illustrated Modeller a very nice report on this kit described as "best kit of this aircraft in any scale"
    If you haven't seen it, you could find it here
    Military Illustrated Modeller Magazine
    Cheers

    This should be a good one, and I think Roman (Seesul) might be interested, as he knows Willi.

    Top selection me old mate and I've a feeling it's going to be a riveting and possibly mind boggling build.

    Cheers Fellas, you will see soon enough....:D have taken some parts off the sprues already to check fit, things don't look too bad so far, I have not read up on this kit too much as I want to do it without outside influence. reports are mostly good with the odd negative response......we shall soon see....
