Airfix 1/72 Mosquito B.II/ V.I/ XVIII

Apart from the instrument panel, rudder pedals and control column I think I’ve done enough in the cockpit and it will look good enough when painted and the canopy attached;

Quite an improvement on what Airfix provided back in the 1970s when the kit first appeared;

The instrument panel was actually moulded onto the front bulkhead but I reversed it to accomodate the etched panel.

Thinking about it today, this was supposed to be a nostalgia build as I loved the kit as a kid but now it’s turned into something like ‘how can we improve this one?’ and really if I was going in depth I should have bought a Tamiya Mossie and saved a lot of work. Anyway it doesn’t hurt to practice making stuff from scratch so the project will continue and it still is a decent replica of a Mossie even if it’s a bit basic.

I've been a modelmaker for a verrry long time and still show no signs of growing out of it after 50 plus years. I mainly build tanks, aircraft and paint figures but generally do whatever takes my fancy whether it's historical, Science-fiction, a 'what-if' or because it has pretty colours and looks nice. I'm hoping that you find my blog interesting and useful, particularly if building a model that I have built and documented here.
