Focke-Wulf aircraft of WWII were usually prefixed with the initials “Fw”, with one of the best-known fighters from the German company being the Fw 190. However, in the case of the Ta 152, the prefix was changed to recognize the pivotal role played by chief designer Kurt Tank. Basically, the Ta 152 was a high-altitude fighter-interceptor derived from the Fw 190. The first production Ta 152H entered service in January 1945, although only 43 fighters were delivered to combat units before the war ended. The Ta 152C variant designed for slightly lower-altitude combat and for the ground attack role was armed with a 30mm MK 108 cannon and four 20mm MG 151/20 weapons.

Dragon’s newest 1/48 scale model depicts the proposed Ta 152C-1/R14 variant, which had the armaments previously mentioned as well as a torpedo stowed under the belly for attacking enemy shipping. However, Focke-Wulf assembly plants were overrun before the Ta 152C-1 began rolling off assembly lines so it never actually saw combat in the hands of the Luftwaffe. This plastic kit builds upon the success of the previously released Ta 152C-0, but it adds the formidable-looking torpedo. The cowling for the aircraft’s Daimler-Benz 12-cylinder DB 603LA has also been modified to provide the correct details. After enjoying Dragon’s famous build quality and engineering excellence, modelers can finish off their fighter with some high-quality decals from Cartograf. Equipped with its torpedo, this new Focke-Wulf is ready to go “fishing”!
