  1. Hello, the beauty is finished ... I love the Mosquito as one of the most beautifully shaped airplanes ever.... she has a kind of elegance in her shape ... Kit is from Tamiya in 1/32 with many, many parts, great fit, great quality, great details, great manuals, great ..... a fantastic kit of a huge model! I have added some photo etched parts from Eduard, some new decals for the stencils and markings (Canadian Airforce with beautiful nose art) and some resin parts. Painting was done with Lifecolor-colors mainly, plus AK Interactive. Weathering wit
  2. 1/32 de Havilland Mosquito B Mk. IX / B Mk.XVI Hong Kong Models Catalogue # HK01E16 Available from MJR Hobbies for £139.50 The Mosquito was probably one of the RAF’s most versatile aircraft designs, and indeed, an aircraft that we may never have had at all if it wasn’t for the perseverance of its designer, Geoffrey de Havilland. It was actually the simplicity of de Havilland’s design that could well have seen the project being stillborn. To meet Air Ministry requirements for a high-speed bomber, de Havilland proposed a new airframe, composed mainly of
  3. Hi all, Time to throw my build into this. The kit is great but I am a sucker for Aftermarket so I bought: 1. Eduard Big Ed Etch Set, 2. Eduard Brassin Wheel Set, 3. Eduard Brassin Exhaust Stacks, 4. Profimodeller Pitot Tube, 5. Some Uschi Plywood Decals (awaiting delivery on those). Going to do the aircraft half bare metal and wood and the other half in a camouflage Im yet to decide upon. So, looking forward to joining the group build and seeing how everyone else does too
  4. So here are the finished pictures: Decals were Uschi van der Rosten WGSF48-C (Fine Veneer Plywood), WGSF48-B "Knotless Birch) and Ho-229 Special Edition (1 of 6). There were more than 160 individual pieces in total. Metallic parts were Vallejo Air Silver, Aluminium & Steel. Eduard belts, radiators & intake mesh. Master Model brass machine gun barrels. Little Lenses in various positions. Acetate reflector gunsight. Lead wire brake pipes. Brass tube pitot head. A bit of scratchbuilding in the cockpit. Apart from that OOB. It's another great Tamiya kit. Build thread here:
  5. Hello All, This is mt first WIP thread here. I did submit my completed WnW SE.5a in the early days of LSM, but I'm afraid since then I've been mainly modelling 1:72. Anyway, this project was started recently, and featured on Quitmodeller until recently...that's another story I guess. This is the story so far. I thought starting a build thread would motivate me to at least get on with the preliminary research, but more on that later... Usual Tamiya quality, looks like little or no filler will be needed, which is a good job in this case... I also went for the simple Eduard etch set
  6. Hi All, Finally finished the cookie monster! Basically a test shot that misses the fabric patches surface details and didn't include decals. I used Mal's perfect masks for the codes, roundels and No Step indications and also the ProfiModeller stencil decals. These include some typo's and are huge in numbers, but they definitely add some life to the otherwise dull surface of the wooden wonder. I took my time with the weathering part. Using a grey sharp colour pencil for scratches and a silver Prisma pencil for the scratches on aluminium parts, like the cowlings
  7. Hi All, Here we go! Yet another Mosquito being build here on LSM while the kit is not even on the shelves yet. This kit arrived wrapped in bubbles, no decals and no instructions. Got these in PDF from Jim to help me out, since I'm not big with puzzles. Having already seen the sprues and kit at Telford the shock of all the slide mouldings wasn't big, but still impressive... Borrowed a few Mossie books from Cees (since I'm not an RAF expert) and just bought an HGW Sutton harness. My plan is to start with the instrument panel (some Airscale will help me out here) and see where I'
  8. 1/32 Mosquito Mk.IV Series II HK Models Catalogue No: 01E015 Available from all good model suppliers priced £149.99 Anyone who, like me, saw this kit at Telford 2014 will have been awaiting this kit with baited breath. Well its here and all I can say is Yes, its as good as one hoped and from handling at Telford expected of this release from HK Models. A certain Japanese company has also announced a Mosquito so its soon to have some company but I think it'll stand up to that if only for some of the major assemblies and their quality. More of that later. The kit arrives in a very
  9. Morning folks! I've been busy beavering away on the HK Models Mosquito for the last week. This has been an exercise in understanding how the 350 parts go together. Thats right...I have no instructions Ideally, I want to build the version which carries a cookie, and also one with shrouded exhausts. Another thing I'd like to include are the invasion stripes. Matt suggested this: This is a possibility, but you'll notice un-shrouded exhausts. That's no big deal, but if anyone can suggest additional schemes with cookies and stripes, can you post here? I promise I'll includ

More detail as it comes to hand at the Shizuoka Hobby Show (Marcus Nicholls will be on the ground with the latest news): Tamiya Kit No. 60326 1/32 De Havilland Mosquito FB Mk.VI Availability: July Japanese Retail Price: 19,800 yen (planned) The "Wooden Wonder" makes an appearance in highly impressive 1/32 scale! That was the nickname given to the De Havilland Mosquito series of aircraft, an ingenious and beautiful design which saw the versatile airplane made almost entirely of wood. Its out
  11. Hi folks, Behind the scenes, LSM have been very proactive in working with HKM. Mostly on the Lancaster, but we have had a reasonable input to the forthcoming Mosquito kit too. If you'd like to see what we've been up to, then here is the box art, featuring my model, with the rest being done by LSM's graphic than division ( ) Pleased that we can finally announce it. Hope you like it!
  12. Hi guys and gals, The Mosquito is now finished, and all material submitted to Brett for publication in next month's Military Illustrated Modeller. A great kit to build. Pure fun, and no fussiness. Do yourself a favour...when this is released, buy it and share your work here. Here's mine, complete with Miracle Masks markings:
  13. Tally Ho! Despite the 1:32 Do 335B-2 being released soon, and the Do 335A-0 following in the not too distant future (already here with us at LSM!), HK Models has now painted in its plans for the release of the Mosquito (bomber version). There will actually be a few versions of this, and I can't confirm if several versions will be in the same box, but we thought you might like to see some renders of this great looking machine. For all you impatient types, pre-orders will be taken for this at Telford in November, and release looks to be happening in the first half of January 2015! I bet
  14. Whilst NOT strictly a walk-around, GUY5SY has asked that post the following YouTube clip here as there is an amazing amount of footage of the Lancaster and of the Mosquito whilst in the ground and both inside and out. Then, of course, you get to see and hear 6 aircraft powered by Merlin engines flying in formation with each other :- It's glorious!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ceuU1UQuwVU Enjoy it. Grant
