1/72 Hasegawa Fw-190D w/Ta-152 Tail (Airwaves conversion)

Recommended Posts

Dear fellow Britmodellers,

my last finished build in 2018 is the 1/72 Hasegawa Fw-190D with the larger Ta-152 tail.

The replacement tail is a resin item from Airwaves (SC72-117).

Metal gun barrels from Master.

Decals come from Eagle Cals (EC#58), representing a machine of III./JG 2, in 1945.

Photo etch parts from Eduard.

All photographs by Wolfgang Rabel.

The model was painted with Gunze/Mr.Hobby  acrylics.

Nice one, Roman. One question - not being a Fw expert - why the different tail?

Thank you for your interest Martin.

A few "Doras" with larger Ta-152 tails were built in 1945 by the Mimetall factory at Erfurt (MME) in the 50xxxx serial range.

Otherwise they were identical to standard Fw 190D-9’s.

Some sources suggest that the larger Ta-152 tail was intended to become the standard fitting for all future Fw 190 production.
However the war ended before this modification became widespread, and only a few examples seem to have been completed (I have photographic evidence of two machines only).
