Airfix 1/72 Mosquito B.II/VI/XVIII

I’ve managed to get this one up to the glossing stage;

The base coat was Tamiya XF-83 Medium Sea Grey with a camo pattern of XF-81 RAF Green. For some reason the grey doesn’t want to spray nicely so before the green was applied I lightly sanded the grey then resprayed it after the white primer began showing through.

I kept the paint layers fairly thin over the top invasion stripes as apparently these were painted over on the real aircraft but still showed through. The next job is to apply the gloss varnish for the decals and washes then it will be another nearer to finishing.

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.
