TA 152H
By: David Bauer

Kit bash TLP Bullpup into TA 152H

What do you do with that TLP Bullpup and Matra "Do you believe in Magic" kits laying around in the build box? Answer: Kit bash into the aircraft that could have been known for clearing the skies over the Reich of all P-51s and B-29's. Yes the TA 152 H. Take an FW 190, stretch it out, add a big wing, prop, super charged bomber engine with methanol water and nitrous injection, a pressurized cockpit, a trained pilot, some 87 octane fuel and the Reich is saved. Fortunately for the Allies only a few even got off the ground. Now one will hopefully fly again, only this time as a model rocket powered by an F-24.

Cut the tip off the Magic's balsa nose cone, cut the base off an old Big Bertha nose cone for the spinner, build the core of the Bullpup stock, cut out and label paper the squishy balsa fins, get some 1/32 decals off feebay, use your old model paint, and get lots of plasticine and BB's for nose weight. Next thing you know you will be flying toward your Knight's Cross with Oak Leaves, S
words and Diamonds.

Here are some other photos, one with earlier Allied Kit bashes, an Estes cluster bomb into a Corsair and an Estes SS1 into a P-40E.

The first flight was near perfect at Chili Baster at SCORE. Attached is a photo of the second flight at CRASH last Sunday. An F24 - 7 hacked down to 4 ish that turned out to be more like 5 ish. The nose was just pointing down when she blew, proving too much for the elastic underwear shock cord. The weighty nose cone did not go far and the airplane like body just went into a flat spin down to the ground. No damage except for the broken cord. With pieces of Kraut airplane falling from the sky it was like Spring 1945 all over again.
