  1. As my F-51D project winds down, I've started preparing for the next one. I'm pretty much addicted to Tamiya's 32nd series and having completed their F4U-1D and Mustang, I decided to take a shot at their Mosquito FB.VI next. Thanks to an awesome wife who got me this rather expensive kit for Christmas, I'll be starting this build shortly. I spent a great deal of time thinking about what subject to build. There are many interesting and historically noteworthy subjects out there so it took me quite a while to selection one. I was assisted in my decision when I read this book: Truly a fascinating and somewhat overlooked part of WW2. These crews took heavy losses flying (very) low level anti-shipping missions over Norway. It kind of fits my general criteria for somewhat more off-beat subjects. In addition, many of these Mosquitoes were repainted in the field in the Special Duties Scheme - A, which (on paper) is Extra Dark Sea Grey over Sky lower surfaces. Personally, I really like this option, it's a nice break from the run of the mill Green / Grey "Night fighter" Scheme that 90% of RAF Mosquitoes were finished in. These aircraft got worked pretty hard so I'll also have some nice opportunities for weathering. So that's where things stand right now. I'll be posting more info later and once I've got my F-51 100% will jump into this project full speed (which for me probably means I'll be finishing this build around Christmas). As always, any comments, suggestions, etc are always welcome.
