Hey Guys,

Now that I learned how to post pictures I might aswell open up a thread right?
I chose the 1/32 scale Zoukei-mura Ta152 kit.

I use the following books:

Zoukei-mura Conceptnote sws No.2
EagleFiles#2 (Jerry Crandall) for rivet ideas
kagero Focke-Wulf vol.4

I use the following tools:

My old and trusted Otto Frei beading tool and sharpener
Waldron punch and die 1,2
H.S Evolution 2 in 1
Gunze paint
Modelmaster metalizer
vallejo paint
Evergreen
liquid Etylacetat

I'll be spending the first post riveting this powerful beast
and I use 3 different sizes. I don't have the patience to rescribe or fill in the surface details I just add what I think is missing on the kit.

hope you enjoy

All the best and Happy new year to you all

Ted

I draw lines with Dymo and rivet freehand so I can see better. I tried along time ago to use templates but it was too big a hassle for me.

And to measure my progress i mark the rivets in ink and wipe them off in order to keep track of things.

 

All the best

Thanks Mate!

 

I'm quite suprised about the quality: my example had alot of flash, sinkmarks and some engine parts are incomplete ( maybe not enough pressure in the form?).

 

I fell in love with your Mig-3- are the wood decals easy to work with?

 

Cheers

I've got one of these in the stash. Will have to check mine.

 

Yes decals are nice. It's the making of templates that's the bit to get right, then its plain sailing.

happy new year Jeroen!

 

I`ve tried MDC, but found they get dull very fast. I use simular tool from Otto Frei. I bought the kit with the tool sharpener included. look them up they hae many cool stuff for modelling(Ottofrei.com)

 

I finished the right side...puh!

Thanks Mikster,

 

For me it's soothing and makes it easier to paint, shade and weather..

 

Wackyracer:

 

I went along all tooo fast with the riveting.. looking at the Smithsonian fluselage there should be dubble rows on allmost all longitudinal strentheners on the fuselage.. I don't know if I will correct this on mine but thought you might wanted to know.

 

Happy new year!

Thanks Ralph!

 

Well, after a teidious rivet session, a sore back and finding out that at least the smithsonian Ta152H-0 has dubble rows of rivets( I pretend I didn´t see it:P).

the fuselage is done...Pew!

 

Now it´s time for the cockpit.

I´ll use most of the kit parts except the I.P and side consoles. I just found several photo etch in the box I never knew that I had(!).

it is the cockpit, service access panels and landingflaps.. I don´t know if I dare to try my hands at that- it looks quite coplicated..

 

I´m not sure wich machine I will go with.. Normally I don´t like captured A/C, but Jeroen´s 202 looks quite good and the American Ta152H-1 looks very messy, dirty wich gives me great oppertunity to work on my weathering techniqes.. what you fine gentlemen think, any suggestions?

 

any how, here´s the last we see of the unpainted fuselage before priming.

I found that if I gently sand down the rivets with fine mesh or such and then ink and seal with semigloss I have(I think) a very convincing pre shade that don´t come thru the paint( I use ink makers- sometimes it comes tru and ruins the finish).

 

All the best

Hello Ted

 

Very nice riveting. 

 

Something to bear in mind with your choice of scheme (if it bothers you) is that you have a riveted, therefore metal, tail and the NASM machine (and others) had a wooden tail (which is pretty smooth).

Matt,

 

Thanks man- It would bother me.. You saved me brother!!I tought it was two different Wnr's.

I really need to get Mr Crandall's book on the subject..

 

Well, then I need to dwell on the matter

 

All the best

Hi guys,

 

I was browsing all the fine builds here yesterday and forgot to update my own progress.

 

i´m in such a ¨"riveted" mode that I continued on with that leaving the cockpit for the time being.

 

All the surfaces minus the mainwing, siderudder, elevators and tailplan are done.

 

The mainwing comes in 8 parts I had some issues getting everything to lineup in all dimensions, so I´ll need some time filling and sanding everything smooth.

 

all the best

 

Ted
