Ta 152 completed (mostly)
I offer one completed group build model.
As a beginner, I have learnt many lessons with this, the main ones being:-
Use cheaper kits until you get better at it!
Make haste slowly.
Manage modelling time better.
The following are the main firsts for me:
Modern kits and materials, including PE, the last one was over 35 years ago!
A group build.
Joining a Forum.
The camouflage effects.
The aircraft the model is based on.
The overall fit and finish.
Poor modelling time management.
It wouldn't be this good without the Forum, so constructive criticism welcome. You can't be harder on me than I am being!
I will go back to it later to use gloss varnish on the canopy and a host of other improvements, but at least it will look good hanging from an 8 year old's ceiling!

Peter...what can i say, with all of those first's in my humble opinion i think you have completed a model to be very proud of. I would be more than happy to have achieved such a great build, congratulations and thank you for sharing the expierience with us, regards Martin :-)
I think that's a stunning first attempt at airbrushing - outstanding! Possibly some of the decals are a little crooked but other than that small observation I think it's a great looking model. I agree the subject matter is cool. The Ta 152 seems to have cleaner lines than the 190D which has a bit of a 'Frankenstein's monster' back end.
BTW - You seem to have tackled the fit problems really well - looks a very elegant and well put together machine.
Remember boys, flies spread disease... so keep yours closed!
