    Product Description
    This is a plastic model kit, which comes unassembled and unpainted. So glue, model paints and other basic modelling tools are additionally required.
    May 1942. In order to intercept the strategic bombers coming from the enemy, the German Air Ministry required for the near future a ""special high-altitude fighter"" which specifications should be a pressurized cockpit and the capability to fly over 13,000m.
    As a response to this request, the Focke-Wulf Company developed as an improved model of the already fighting masterpiece Fw 190 the ultimate jet-fighter, proud to fly over 10,000m at a high speed of 750km/h, and equipped with a liquid-cooled engine back and forth, a long fuselage and long, as wide, wings. The first prototype came out in August 1943. During the last days of the Great War, the "Ta 152", ultimate reciprocating jet fighter demanded for the Homeland Defense, was finally born.
    Model Features:
    - 2-colour molded parts including clear
    - Total parts: 182
    Model Details:
    1. Nose and Propellers' Shapes
    The liquid-cooled engine equipped Ta 152 has an extended nose to reach higher altitudes, which gives the airplane a very special outline. That shape has been thoroughly reproduced with our SWS kit, based on the information gathering on the real machine. The line of the nose upper surface going from the window shield to the engine cowling is stronger, while the louver and the breather-our of the crank case are also reproduced in their smallest details. Also, the wide wood-enforced Juncker's VS9 propellers adopted a gear shaped oil motor serving as a power source to change the angles of the propeller pitches. They are made of 3 blades of 3.6m diameter each and rotating at a constant speed.
    2. Engine
    Juncker's Jumo 213 E engine is a liquid-cooled V-shaped 12 cylinders SOHC engine, adopting a direct injection fuel-system without carburettor. The motor cannons could not be equipped on the 213 A installed on the Fw 190 D-9 because of a fuel conduction passing through the whole axis section in order to change the angles of the propeller pitches, but the fuel conduction has been redesigned in this 213 E engine allowing the installation of motor cannons, which is reproduced in the kit. As for the supercharger, it is a double level - three speed with air cooler placed just behind in order to cool down the pressurized air. Then, the structure of the shrouds located inside the circular radiators, and the pipes - preferred to MG 151 machine guns initially planned to be installed on the upper surface of the nose - conducting the fresh and compressed air to the cockpit, are easy to understand with this SWS kit.
    3. Pilot Life
    The Ta 152 H-series has a pressurized cockpit, where high pressure starts running from an altitude of 8,000m and air is secured with a maximum pressure differential of 0.23 from 14,000m. The pressurized cockpit of the Ta 152 H series has a rough external panel covered with a steel frame, while an interior air pressure adjustment and airtightness are meant to keep the pilot safe. Literally life-supporting. Furthermore, this SWS kit represents the thickness of the bullet proof glass of the window shield equipped with a 70mm electric pressure heater on the front, and also the details of the fuel spout pipe for cleaning inside the triangular side structure.
    4. Wings and Landing Gears
    With the H-0, the fuel tanks were inserted only in the fuselage, while with the H-1 two fuel tanks and a 70L capacity water tank have been eventually installed on the inside of the left wing, and three fuel tanks have been placed on the inside of the right wing. You may see at a glance to the panel lines of the main wing surfaces, the differences with the H-1. Since the positions of the oil-pressurized cylinders are different between the two planes, the position of the torque arm-link of the aileron steerage mechanism is also different. Thanks to the SWS techniques reproducing rationally the inner and outer structure differences of both planes, these wings can be considered as the highlight of the Ta 152, along with the robust landing gears able to absorb the shock when landing from high-altitudes.
