    The TA 152 at NASM going through the paces to get her back looking good............

    Walter Loos's mount Grüne 4 of Geschwader Stab./JG 301

    you can see the old RLM 76 base with some of the Grey-green mottling. Two coats of heavy paint esepcailly the US crap that was done over the original Luftwaffe finish. It will take time but will be worth it.

    what a job but it would be something to touch history.... note the FE US ID numeration and the small US swastika

    my personal thoughts is that the a/c will be in Jerry Crandall's book on the unit JG 301. Jerry has been instrumental in getting this thing going. He and another NASM chap have covered every inch of Loos's machine with associated specs and pics/drawings which be included in the JG 301 book and also a few pics from my own archiv..... yee haw

    Cool, I wonder if the strip down and renovation might be fed into Flugwerks for a possible replica since it's naturally share most/some of the 190's structure;

    Wings are certainly different. but would that be be via new 'profiles' and totally new internals, or a mix of larger spacings between ribs and/or with extended or partial overlapping some componants to extend them (like the vaulting of the Khafre's Grand Gallery) with the addition of some new parts where needed?
