     The Huckebein is one of those Luft '46 projects I have wanted to do for years. So, once I cleared some shelf space in 2019, I took the plunge and purchased the Academy 1/48th scale Focke-Wulf Ta-183A kit. It dates back as far as 2000 as an Amtech release before being re-issued by Tamiya. This is the third reboxing. I purchased this from Hannants in October 2019.

    The problem with such projects is this: how to make them original? You have a world of possibilities and can mark up the plane in any wartime markings you like. It is not like accuracy is an issue here. So I am thinking maybe an example captured in US markings. Maybe a nightfighter version with radar. Maybe even a crash diorama. I shall ponder this for a while.
