More extras for the HK Mossie.

 

Exhausts look stunning!

I noticed that HK doesn't include the inner exhaust shrouds. I have no idea if these were removed in the field or not like the shrouds on P-51 Mustangs...

Well, maybe not 'LSM' size but calling for some serious decalling and decorating skills...

So, very much LSM quality potential, I'd say.

 

You actually get almost all the black and yellow as a decal, but I'll probably mask and paint most of it. I've done something similar with the black and yellow striped F-104 a few years ago.

Got myself a Citadel basic paintset today. During lunchtime visited a games workshop and met some nice guys there. They showed me the paint and left not emptyhanded. Working in the centre of Amsterdam has it's uses.

Hi Cees, is that the one on Rokin? Spent some time (and Euros) in there with my son when we were over a couple of years ago.

 

Excellent staff and good selection of stuff, or so my son said.

 

Cheers, Gus

Hi Gus,

Nay, Rozengracht, it is close to the Rokin (give or take a mile) but behind the Royal Palace at Dam Square.

They have a set of washes too, I was shown some projects they were working on and it looked great. And nothing

is done by airbrush. Just a quick primer with a spraycan and the rest with the hairy wand.

Hi Cees, yes I think I got my east and west mixed up. We were staying on the Herengracht which is about midway between the two. From memory, there was another one over the other side of town as well.

... The only thing I wish for now is a half-serious flue-attack so I get to read the 300 pages undisturbed in bed... -_- ...

 

Go the 'Man-Flu' ... ham it up ... you'll be right ;) ;)

 

Looks like there's some Walrus references in there!

 

Rog :)

Even though I'm terrified of a resin kit that big and involved I really envy you right now. I expect a WIP as soon as you return home!

Ahhh, yes. But then you'd have to scratch everything. In the HPH Catalina

nearly all structures in that photo are already present - you just change the order of them...  :D

Your logic is infallible.

My haul was modest, I got the Haynes Manual on the Bristol Blenheim, and the HK Models Mosquito B IV.

So will start hacking it apart to make the prototype soon. Not into Dark side modelling, save me a lot if money

Though.

This little kit was a gap in our HpH review list:

After chatting to Kuni from ZM, he arranged to have this put away for me:
