Just like the actual aircraft! The airplane (fighter plane) design was thoroughly researched.

Through the process of building with your hands, the design plan of Kurt Tank becomes clear. “Fighter planes shouldn't be racehorses, they need to be cavalry horses.” With that sincerity and fortitude, you can personally experience the ideals of Luftwaffe, told through the final evolution in fuselage design of the Fw series.

Faithful reproduction of the Jumo 213E down to the support peripherals. The 12-cylinder engine and the incorporated MK 108 autocannon were sculpted together into one substantial structure. With the circumference surrounded by organically coordinated piping, even though it's an artificial construction, you can feel the overflowing impression of vitality. The crankshaft's guide tube that extends just above the inertia starter is precisely connected to the opening in the cowl. Similarly, the air flow for pressurization has been reproduced starting from the rear of the surface cowling, passing through the air filter at the back of the engine, and heading towards the cockpit.

A truly lifelike realization of the neat and orderly cockpit of a German aircraft. For example, the fact that the rudder pedals are suspended from the ceiling. When pushed with the entire soles of the feet, shafts connected to the pedals would activate, and that pressure would pass up the sides of the seat and link with cables that extended all the way back to the rudder. Although the cables themselves were not duplicated, the reproduction is such that you can experience the movements of the pilot.

The landing gear assemblies that support the takeoff and landing of the Ta 152 have been reproduced in their unweighted state. You can fully satisfy yourself with the beautiful figure of an airframe that has never borne explosives.

The angles between the main landing gear assemblies and the main wings have been firmly planned and verified so as to prevent any deviation. It's possible for anyone to set the angles in one shot without any anxiety.

Please observe the characteristic, gently rounded outline of the VS9 propeller!

The utmost care was taken during sculpting to not disrupt the equilibrium between the sharpness that slices through the atmosphere, and the gently rounded lines distinctive of wooden propellers.
Our master sculptor was implacable in taking charge of this aspect all the way until the final polishing of the metal molds.

Without losing any of the visual substance, faithful reproduction of equipment confirmed to be installed on the airframe. Due to being deployed in the final days of World War II, additional exterior equipment, such as bombs, is not clearly known. Surely they were installed on the fuselage, at least? At any rate, peripheral devices (such as jacks) are planned to be released in the Extra Parts Series. Please look forward to it!!

I want Tank's 152!!
Moreover, I want a “plastic model” worth dreaming about, one where you can finish construction using the same process as if you were building the real aircraft! Ever since I embraced this longing, exactly how much time has flowed by…
