The Great LSM Twins Group Build ends July 3, 2024 ×

Tamiya 1/48 Mosquito Night Fighter RFI


Recommended Posts

Finished with this one. A very enjoyable build and I think it goes well in this GB thread. OOB except for the gun mounts in the bomb bay which are Aires. VERY fiddly to assemble that Aires set but, when finished, it adds a lot to the finished model. Painted with Colourcoats and Testor's MM. Alclad dark aluminum for the landing gear. I used decals that came in the kit. They were thin and easy to apply. Much better than some of the Tamiya decals for earlier kits. I hope y'all like the results of my efforts! :)

Excellent as usual John. Final results are wonderful. Those kits are great. They go together easily and quickly with little fuss and the end result looks great.

I'm glad you like it Jeff, thanks. I agree, Tamiya kits by and large are very good with few, if any, problems. The only complaint I have is they are a bit pricey. However, you get what you pay for! :)

LOL Chris. It's such a easy build I think most any model builder could knock one out in a very reasonable time. :)

Very nice Mossie John, I especially like the perfectly blended and matted camo, with the decals fitting in like sprayed on.

Cheers Rob

Thank you Rob! I'm very pleased that the decals worked out well. The decals in some of the older Tamiya kits were a bit thick, etc. I'm glad Tamiya came up with the new, thin, easy to apply one's. :)

Love this aircraft and your build is terrific.  That Ares kit is very cool and you did a great job putting that in.

Thank you Chris. The Aires set was very fiddly to assemble but worked out okay in the end. I'm glad you like it. :)
