Aoshima Tank Ta 152 H-1/R-11 of Oberfeldwebel Willie Reschke in 1/72 Scale

This is the Aoshima kit of the Tank Ta 152 H-1/R-11 of III. /JG 301 flown by Oberfeldwebel Willie Reschke.  He scored 27 victories during the war, including three while flying Green 9 and an earlier one by ramming, but was shot down eight times himself and wounded once.  He survived the war.

The kit is Aoshima’s Ta 152 with a Quickboost replacement cowling and scratchbuilt wheelwells.  Reference for this aircraft is Hitchcock’s volume 3 of the Monogram Monarch series, published by Eagle Editions.  The profile of this machine on page 160 shows Green 9 with the horizontal bar of III Gruppe, which differs from the markings in other references but is consistent with Luftwaffe marking practices .

  1. Nice work on this one Jeff, I like it! That’s interesting about dying in car accidents, most people worry about plane accidents but far more die over here in car accidents but you never hear them say, Oh I’m scared of driving!!
