Dragon Focke-Wulf Ta 152 H-0 of Oberfeldwebel Walter Loos in 1/72 Scale

Walter Loos didn’t join his first operational unit until January 1944, and was one of the few late arrivals to survive the war.  He served with the Sturmgruppe IV./JG 3, whose mission was to penetrate the massed American bomber formations in heavily armored Focke-Wulf Fw 190’s and engage the bombers at close range.  While he was credited with destroying 22 heavy bombers, he was himself shot down 9 times.  He was credited with a final score of 38 aerial victories.

The model represents Loos’ Ta 152H-0 of Stab/JG 301 based at Neustadt-Glewe in Germany during April 1945.
