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.

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?
The following shots show the Ta 152 H-1 / R11, W. No. 150167, captured by American troops in Erfurt-Nord. It was to serve as an industrial production template for the Focke-Wulf factory in Bremen. At the beginning of 1945, produced in Cottbus, it was supplemented with auxiliary instruments, which included the following components: n the end, it can only be said that the Ta 152 with the factory. No. 150 167 was captured by the Americans in an airworthy state on 15 April 1945 in Erfurt-Nord. The 150 167 was thus likely to be planned for the planned conversion to the H-10. 1 However, this machine has been identified as H-1 / R11 in the Americans
