Tamiya 1/32nd De Havilland Mosquito


Recommended Posts

So having posted the whole WIP on this just now in true Netflix style, here is the finished result!

De Havilland Mosquito FB Mk.VI

This particular version is modeled on one that took part in Operation Jericho, RNZAF, No 487 Squadron

My first aircraft kit (although I started and finished a Spitfire for a mate in between) and it is a cracker - I know it is expensive, but cannot fault this Tamiya kit. Although I used some Eduard detail kits (engines, guns etc) you certainly do not need these to make the kit amazing.

I'm learning the weathering thing, and I know this is a little 'dirty' - but I thoroughly enjoyed it and learning what I did, having been inspired by the masterpieces elsewhere on this forum...
