    1:32 Mosquito Mk II

    I am just about to start building, but am very concerned about the best way to get a good finish on the model. It will be finished in overall satin black (As a Nightfighter), but I'm not sure of the best way to do this. My plan is to spray it in gloss black and then apply the decals. I'm struggling to source Humbrol aerosol satin varnish. Would Plastikote varnish be useable on plastic and on the decals? Any comments would be gratefully received. Regards, Geoff.

    Hi John, What a brilliant offer - If you do find you have a spare pair, I would certainly appreciate them. Let me know how much. Cheers, Geoff.

    Hi Mike, Thanks for the information - I think I'll give the PE a go, and see how I get on. Hi Dennis, I'll see what I can find out and give it a go - I had a model shop in Carlisle in the '70s and '80s, and dealt with Richard Kohnstam for my Tamyia stock. I think they morphed into RIKO and suspect they have closed down, but I'll keep you posted. Thanks everyone for your help. Cheers, Geoff.

    Hi Dennis, Thank you for all your efforts. I think I need to find somebody who has lost interest in their Tamiya kit! Cheers, Geoff.

    Hi Jason, Again, thanks for the quick reply. Do you know of anyone producing the A.I. aerials - Also whether the photo-etching for the Tamiya kit be suitable for the Revell version Thanks for all your help today!!! Cheers, Geoff.

    Hi Jason, Thanks for the quick reply - That'll get me started, but I didn't know about the change in cockpit canopy! Cheers, Geoff.

    1:32 Mosquito Mk II

    Hi, Looking for help already with converting a 1:32 Revell Mosquito Mk IV to a MK II Nightfighter. My uncle flew with 157 Squadron, and I would like to try and replicate his aircraft. I have his Combat Reports, and he describes his aircraft as a Mosquito Mk II (AI.Mk V). I have discovered a replacement resin Mk II nose from Grey Matter which looks good - Any opinions? Also a sheet of photo-etched parts for the cockpit, but for the Tamiya version - Would this be suitable for the Revell version. Also looking for the AI aerials, and, I think, gun barrels for the replacement nose. Any other ideas? Looking forward to a mountain of replies! Cheers, Geoff.

    Hi there!

    I've just been given the 1:32 Mosquito kit by Revell as a present. It's about 30 years since I last built anything, so I'm looking for help already! I'll post later on this. I ran a model shop in Carlisle in the late '70s and early '80s, but it's like starting again. Very pleased the Mosquito kit is still about. Now for the questions! Cheers, GeoffD.
