Tamiya Mosquito finished


Recommended Posts

Finally finished with this one. It's a great kit but can have some "high cuss factor" moments usually due to my own clumsiness, etc.  Completely OOB. Upper camo colors are Xtracolor while the undersides and interior are Testors MM. The decals are Aviology (thanks Carl!!!). I hope you like the results of my efforts! :)

Great job John! 

I hear you on the challenges of putting one together. Had some of my own doing on my build. 

So what's next in the queue?


Thank you Carl. I'm glad to have this one completed so now I can consider what is next. Undecided right now. :)

Great job, John!  A real stunner.  Glad to see it completed, too.  I've heard this one mentioned as a mojo killer before.

Thanks Gaz! I'm glad you like it. Yes, it can have its "moments" but it makes up unto a nice model. I don't think these photos do it justice. :)

Your Mossie looks great, love the details like the engine and bomb bay. As much as I'd like to start mine, it has to wait, but seeing your fine result raises the urge.

Cheers Rob

Thank you Rob! I'm glad you like it. :)

That looks really great, we used to have a Mosquito based near us and I always used to admire it, sadly it was lost in an accident. Yours definately does it proud I must admit that the black undersides look better to me.





Thanks Dennis. :)
