    Hi folks,
    Happy New Year to all!

    A new year allways is a good time to start projects planned over a long period. There are rumors Pacific Coast wants to do the TA-152 C. I was stupid enough to buy their expensive Ta-152 H - a major disapointment when I opened the box.

    So I will built my 152 C by kitbashing the PC-H with my sparebox.
    A sparebox has a live of its own. It never gets empty!

    The most difficult part will be the engine covers for the Daimler 603 engine.
    Found this in a german Mag. called "Luftfahrt".

    Hi Wurger,
    I'm afraid I have to do it scratch.

    Hi Mate,

    Yep...sometimes there is no way and we have to do it. Maybe a wooden former and shaping styrene sheet with warming?

    Hi,
    I think you know that you also have to reduce the wingspan: it was 14.44 meters on the "H" and only 11.0 meters on the "C"
    I have this book on that bird,
    [​IMG]
    from which I've taken the following drawings

    If you need any other info, just let me know and I will search the book.
    Cheers
    Alberto

    Hi guys,
    thanks for your interest!
    This will be a slow build, step by little step.
    First I scaled up some drawings on the PC and printed them. I thank God that I bought an A.3 printer years ago it's worth ten times the money I payed for it

    nice schematics Michael may I suggest Eagle editions work/Monogram on the Ta 152. Jerry probably has more first hand experience with the Ta than any one on the planet

    Hi Erich,
    got one at last.

    There is one good point so far with the PC-TA. When you do a C-version you haven't to clean the right side of the engine cover from the Jumo supercharger adapter. The large fairing on the left left for the DB 603 engine bearer started as a prop of the old Revell 109 filled up with 2-K Putty. The weak bunbs over the cowl canons were bolstered up with 72 scale props. Now it will have to dry overnight.
