Latest Completion a Mosquito

Recommended Posts

Here is my latest completion, Tamiya's 1/48 Mosquito with Master Gun Barrels and Eduard PE Interior. This is a build I had intended to do for some time of my Friends Dads Mosquito. He flew operationally in Europe in 43 and 44 and finished of the war in 1945 at 133 Squadron in Pat Bay BC chasing down Japanese Balloon Bombs. In July of 45 he was taking up KA111 for a test flight after maintenance and it had a twin engine failure on take off at about 150 feet. It ended up broken in half off the end of the runway but luckily he walked away from it and was flying the next day. I was got to see his log book and fortunately there are some pics of the incident.

Thanks, the weathering washes out a bit in the pics compared to in person. I'll be adding more weathering before I take it to the next model show but this was a fun build in between a Trumpeter Wyvern  and Hobby Craft Tutor. Tamiya Kits are great for getting motivated again. Cheers Ray
