Against my better judgement, I decided to get a fourth Dragon kit. Another Ta 154. This one will be built as the projected, but never built, A-2 single seater day fighter version. Since the Ta 154A-2 never materialised, I have an open canvas regarding the camouflage. Speaking of camouflage, I still don't know how I'll paint this kit. Undersides will be in RLM 76, but for the upper sections, I have no idea. Since it'll be a single seat heavy fighter, I could go with a late war RLM 75/82 or 81/82 scheme with the late JG 300 RVD band on the back. The other option would be to use RLM 74/75 with the early JG 300 red band. Tough decisions will need to be made. Markings will be as simple as it gets, with the generic crosses and two chevrons to make it a Hauptmann aircraft. I'm also aware of the warping issue of the wings. My copy looks ok (I said the same when I bought the first one). Here's the link that has all the planned variants of the Moskito: http://www.historyofwar.org/articles/weapons_focke-wulf_Ta_154_Moskito.html Start of the project ia scheduled after January 21st of 2023.
This kit was languishing at the bottom of my stash for years. It was half started, then stuffed into its box and forgotten about. I found it hidden away and decided I wanted to do a straight out of the box, no frills build. All I added was a couple of strips of masking tape as seat belts and a Swastika from the spares box. Xtracolour enamels were used and I used a mixture of free hand and home made paper masks to do the mottling. Start to finish, 5 days. free screenshot image upload no size limit image url upload a picture screenshot software screen capture program photo sharing sites uploading images Thanks for looking
