Many of you will be well aware of the name Claes Sundin as a top-class and high-profile aviation illustrator, most well-known for his exquisite series of Luftwaffe aircraft profiles. I was lucky enough to be able to enlist Claes’ talents for Build Guide Series No. 7, Building the Zoukei-Mura Ta 152H in 1/32 Scale, by John Kim. I’ve now added Claes to our Partners page, under the banner of his company Centura Publishing, and look forward to working with him again on future publications!
You can also check out Claes’ profile artwork for Ta 152H-0 “White 7” in our eBook on building the Zoukei-Mura 1/32 scale kit:
Building the Zoukei-Mura Ta 152H in 1/32 Scale
In this 166-page eBook, John Kim takes you through the building, painting, and finishing of the terrific 1/32 scale Ta 152H kit from Zoukei-Mura.
Zoukei-Mura released two variants of the kit: an initial Ta 152H-1 kit, and a follow-up Ta 152H-0 release with refined tooling. Wanting to build a Ta 152H-0, but not being able to find the correct kit, John decided to take the earlier Ta 152H-1 release and backdate it to H-0 configuration. John takes us through not only the simple panel line modifications required for the backdating process, but also his building, painting, and weathering processes to produce the terrific model you see in the book.
