I will follow this build with interest too Patrice :).

 

I'm a very big fan of the Mosquito. I plan to do one in the Matchbox GB later this year. I have the Tamiya kit too; it is much more detailed and Im interested to see how the wing and spar assembly goes together. They have a very detailed undercarriage too; it puzzles me a little so watching your build will be a big help :thumbsup2: .

 

Nice choice of subject, the profile looks old and interesting.

 

Best regards

TonyT

Hi Tony

I agree the Mosquito is a very nice aircraft , I also have the Hasegawa Mosquito in my stash but I prefer the Tamiya one much more detailed ..I have found the profile on Wings palette ..

I hope I won't disapoint you with the rest of this build..

Very smart Patrice. Could I ask; what brand of paint did you use for the MSG and dark green?

I like the shades of colour and the finish :thumbsup2:
