    Hallo,
    well I started a Sabre Mk6 of the German Luftwaffe with the Martin Baker ejection seat conversion. Now I am still looking for an early Martin Baker resin part or some pics of it at least.
    So I decided to ad just another prototype on the way to the TA 152 while waiting.
    The FW 190 V32-U1 was often mistaken as the forerunner of the TA 153. This is nonsens because the TA 153 plans were cancelled months before the FW 190 V32-U1 appeared. The v32 started with a DB 603A augmented by an exhaust driven turbochar.ger and was a lookalike to the V-18 and V-30. Disapointing performance of this combination saw the supercharger gone and replaced by a DB 603G with an enhanced mechanical charger. The tail section was lengthed and new larger fin (even larger than the Ta one) was added. A wide span wing replaced the regular A-wing. This will be the bird I want to built. The V32 followed the V18 as it was again modified getting the TA 152 H1 wing and a Jumo 213 E engine to become just another TA-152 prototype.

    I plan to use up all that was left from my earlier FW-TA projects - "patchwork".
    William Green has two pics in his "Focke Wulrf 190". It always rains in nothern Germany :(

    Here I found some dubious drawings:
    Focke-Wulf Ta 153 B-1 and Ta 153 D-1

    I marauded my sparebox and started:

    You can recognice two decade old leftovers and the outer wings of the PC-TA.

    Another great project on the way. Michael, it might be easier to scratch-build the MB seat for the Sabre. Have a look at the Martin Baker web site, as they have a 'history' in pictures of the evolution of their seats, and might have that one shown.

    After reading some background information it became clear the PC-wing couldn't be used. I cut off most of it and replaced it by parts of an left over A-version wing reduced in width. Agood opportunity to install some undercarriage wheel-well details.

    Hi all together,
    I spent a full month with modelmeetings and holidays and did very litte to further my FW 190. Just a tiny progress. The enginecover and the area aft of the cockpit got some attention.

    Nice work Michael. With all the different sections, it looks a bit like the real thing in the factory !

    Hi Airframes this was my intention. Doing it like Focke Wulf and built it from an "A" version.
