Re-starting HK Mossie

Recommended Posts

This is another kit I started a while back but put back on the shelf awaiting "inspiration" LOL. So now I am ready to resume the build. It will be mostly OOB except for some Eduard PE cockpit details and FineMolds seat belts. I'm crossing my fingers that I don't lose interest again. Onward and upward as they say!

Hey John, one thing I have discovered is that the very top deck will not reach the bulkhead ahead of it. Its an easy fix with strip.

Funny coincidence isn't it! Thanks for the tip. I'll keep that in mind. Which a/c are you doing? I have decided on the black underside w/bulged bomb bay PC*3.

Me too, I find that one the most interesting....esp with that water heater bomb!

The worst on the sheet is the Russian one.

Yes, they are, as far as I am concerned, a waste.

This will be my second HK Mossie. I built the other kit with the under nacelle air scoops a couple of years ago.

Those flaps look great, I had an awful time with it!

But nothing $140 and free shipping couldn't fix.....sigh.

I really don't recall if I had difficulty with the flaps. :wacko:

I had to check my build of Grim Reaper to see what I did with the flaps. Definitely down.

Looking forward to your second build of this kit. I hear you on the burn out bit. I had that happen to me as well but on the Tamiya one. Shouldn't have tried building two of them at once.

I have a Tamiya Mk VI ordered and intend to build it when done with this kit. Probably as a night intruder or a night fighter. I'll have to look around for any available night fighter conversions sets.

John, you jumping back in might persuade me to as well.  I was in he middle of a BOAC Mossie, and contracted the dreaded PE burnout, so to the SOD it went as well.

This will be great, might be just what I need to crack on with my Tamiya Trainer conversion or my 24th Airfix one as well....

I guess I'm not the only one with "Mossie Fever" LOL. :)
