    Hi!
    To those who ever worked over Fw-190D or Ta-152.

    I have started Pacific Coast 1/32 Ta 152.
    It is almost started because there are big problems with what lays inside the box. :(
    Question:
    Museum photos show the enormous riveting along the wing and fuselage. At the same time I found that after assembly all the rivets were polished away and covered with some " paste 8800" .

    Focke-Wulf Ta 152 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia ... the rivets around the cockpit skinning being sealed with DHK 8800

    They were doing it for improvement of aerodynamics I suppose.
    Do I need to rivet the plastic if I am doing the combat plane from JG 301 in 1/32?
    By the way the rivets are mostly visible on the lower part of the wing.

    I am glad to hear any assumptions. Because I am lost!

    P.S. Is anybody have the measurements of the cowl flaps for Ta 152?

    regards

    Michael
