Tamiya 1/32nd De Havilland Mosquito

Recommended Posts

De Havilland Mosquito FB Mk.VI

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

 

Finally - that took a while! 

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.

I want to do some more pics with a bit of photoshop play, backgrounds etc....

And finally - I posted the montage below on FB....

Planes aren’t really my thing, although I have build a couple. That’s not stopped me from following along with this one from start to finish!

 

I really appreciate you sharing the progress along with your own learning experiences and trials with it. It’s an encouragement to others to try the same and do things they wouldn’t necessarily normally do. It’s hard to believe that you haven’t build planes before this as you’ve built it like a pro.
