Excellent start so far, I especially lik ethe leather effect on the seat. How do you painted that?

I used some veiling (tulle)... I sprayed over the veiling 3 or 4 times with 2 coulours.... Then I used some oils (raw umber, black) and finished by the use of weathering effects of TAMIYA  :D  :D  :D

Here I come again my friends with new updates, starting by the tailplane ....

The interior of the tailwheel painted “wooden” (ply wood textures) and the mudguard painted black (interior) and white aluminum (exterior) as we can see in the real photos...screen_2015_05_24_17_05_38.jpg

The most important at this step is the assignment of the bulkhead (Bulkhead No7) and the adjustable tailparts support tubes of the wheel...

Here, we have the building of the engines and mounting them on the nacelles. The Mosquito Mk IV was fitted with Merlin 21 engines. HK’s engines of the model, are medium detailed comparing with the counterpart of Tamiya’s. There is only the general shape of the engines which is the base for a further detailing result to an expert modeler! Another serious omission is the coolant tank and the exhaust stubs, need to be drilled!

Here are some photos and informations about Merlin of Mosquito.
