Focke-Wulf Ta 183

by Andrew Judson


Description

Here is AMtech's 1/48 scale Focke-Wulf Ta 183 built straight from the box.

This kit was re-issued by Tamiya, and this is the version that I built. The new boxing included the Kettenkrad and figures that had previously been issued with their Me 262A-2a kit.

My model was painted using the Testor Aztek A470 airbrush.

The camouflage pattern was fictional, as befitting an aircraft that never actually saw Luftwaffe service. I repainted the upper surface camouflage pattern several times before I was eventually satisfied.

 

The little Kettenkrad is a great model in its own right and a very quick, easy build. I adapted the pilot figure to ride in the back of the tiny tractor.
