  1. Photos of this aircraft from April 1945 show a strike camera/gun camera in a nonstandard fairing on the midline of the nose just above the machine guns. I have some questions about this fitting. Are there any drawings or detail photos available that show the size and shape of the fairing, and how it was fitted to the nose piece? Is it known whether this camera arrangement was first fitted as part of the trials with the tiered rocket launchers and drop tanks, or was it fitted to this aircraft for use in documenting the Strike Wings' attacks? Thanks for any in
  2. The Beast is done - for a long time now. The slender two engine is racing gracefully to completion. Work-from-home is was fun, then it was gone and now back again. Bench time was ample, then gone, and maybe coming back. It time for the next one: This one comes with a whole lot of plastic: So, frets cleaned up, transparencies soaked in future and drying, workbench is being organized. Hope building will start soon. Ran
  3. 163 Squadron RAF was re-formed at RAF Wyton in Jan 45, between then and the wars ends they flew 500 sorties. Mosquito's of the squadron visited Berlin 24 times in March 45. Mosquito Squadrons Of The RAF by Chaz Bowyer lists 16 serial number/code letter combinations, however even the RAF's own website under its Bomber Command history section lists Squadron Codes as 'unknown'! I have seen photographs of 163 aircraft (including RAF Wyton's excellent Pathfinder Collection brochure) but always frontal views with no codes visible. I find it amazing that even the RAF apparently don't know what codes
  4. Airfix’s 1980 kit of the 1/48 Mosquito FB VI converted to a Molins’ 57mm Mk XVIII ‘TseTse' sub-hunter. The main gun was a standard British Army 6 pounder anti-tank gun, fitted with an auto loader and could fire 25 rounds in 20 seconds! The .303 machine guns were reduced to 2 (for sighting purposes) and an additional 900 pounds of armour were added. 26 were so modified. The kit was rescribed, the small scoops and the carb intakes on the engine nacelles were opened up, and a scratch built gunsight, details and wiring were added to the cockpit. The propeller blades were reshaped and t
  5. Stransky Kits has shown Havilland DH..98 Moquito 3D renders. A future 1/144th or 1/72nd kit ? Time will tell. Source: https://www.facebook.com/stransky.kits/posts/1740414832774327 Anyway: https://www.facebook.com/stransky.kits/posts/1740414832774327 V.P.
  6. Hi, here goes another bird in 1/72. This time the beautiful Mosquito. Not the best kit from Tamiya, in particular the fit at the back of the engines with the wings and the connection between wings and fuselage, but at the end it looks OK. I've spent sometime with the paint job and trying to do some subtle weathering. At the end I've enjoined the built so much that decided to get the amazing 1/32 scale version from Tamiya that I'm planning to build in the near future.
  7. source: czech forum A.R. from Special Hobby confirmed Mosquito project publicly announced some time ago is in progress and people from AZ/KP know it. The next battle in the war.
  8. Any Mosquito experts out there? I'm trying to build a couple of Mosquitos, post 1950 to fit my collection. I have the Freightdog decals for a NF36 with a bull nose and the PR34. The decals say use the Tamiya Mk XIII/XVII and B Mk IV kits with Freightdog conversions. Looking at the pictures it looks like I need the slipper tanks and possibly the tropical intakes? Is this correct? Is there anything else needed? Would appreciate if anyone confirm/advise please?
  9. Hi all, hope you all are ok and safe... This is my first completed model during my quarantine here in Spain (started several months ago). I bought this one because of the color scheme, without knowing anything about the sprues or reviews, etc. so it was a surprise when I opened the box. Airfix did a strange thing with this product, I don't mean it's a bad thing, but at least strange. Half of the sprues are from the '70s and half are modern ones, designed for this D-Day edition... I think it had been better to design completely a new one model, if you plan to design the half
  10. Brengun has just released a 1/48th de Havilland DH.98 Mosquito two-stage merlin resin conversion set (ex -Attack Squadron ? ) - ref. BRL48124 - for the Tamiya keit. Source: http://www.hauler.cz/e-shop/1-48-accessories-22/dh98-mosquito-two-stage-merlin-(tamiya)-1672 V.P.
  11. I'm talking 1/72 and kit #03019. I'm trying to make a start at clearing the stash and this kit came up on the production line. Straightforward I thought. 1970's Airfix. Accurate outline, fit a bit mediocre but nothing a bit of filler can't sort out. Cursory look at reviews on this site and others flagged up the undercarraige was a bit fiddly, the guns fragile and, aside from 1 review, no other issues came up. So we start: Cockpit rudimentary but otherwise as expected. Sure enough, 1 gun barrel disappeared so Mastercast replacement ordered from the big H. Surprised to find a Mk.XVIII is
  12. I thought I would paste up one of my latest finished models - de Havilland Mosquito Mk XIII HK422/RO*Z 29 Squadron RAF. During the period Oct 1943 to Oct 1944 Lieutenant DRO Price RNVR with his Observer Sub. Lieutenant B Armitage RNVR were seconded to 29 Sqn RAF to learn the art of AI and Night Fighting. During that period Price and Armitage made three claims. 09/10. 06.44 Ju188 Destroyed 21/22.04.44 Me110 Destroyed 17/18.09.44 Me110 Destroyed Unfortunately 29 Sqn RAF only recorded in the Operations Record Book that, on each occasion,
  13. The postie delivered Revell's 1:32 Mosquito IV in the post today and I have been thinking about how to build it. In particular, the SEAC silver and blue scheme caught my eye. What aftermarket bits and bobs would I need to save up for build up an accurate Mossie, since there are few kits in this scale?
  14. Hello friends, another model from the old school is over. I am pleased that it eventually turned out. Not in rank Tamiya, but on the shelf it seems satisfactory. Here's the picture, enjoy it.
  15. Dear fellow Britmodellers, this is my 1/72 Tamiya Mosquito FB Mk.VI, built with Master metal gun barrels, CMK weapon bay and Eagle Cal decals. Markings represent an aircraft of 418. Squadron in October 1944. Painted with Gunze/Mr.Hobby acrylics. All photographs by Wolfgang Rabel. CMK weapon bay wasn't a good fit at all, being too short for the cut-out of the lower fuselage. Thanks for your interest in this topic. With best greetings from Vienna,
  16. Hi people, My second WIP post (other is FW16 F1 car) and first plane. I suspect this model has had a lot of WIP, as it is so new - so I hope another one is ok! Best way to get advice on techniques etc...the skill level on these forums is incrediable... Same story as many on here I am sure - used to make models as a kid, getting back into it 35 years later! Less likely to throw the result out of a window, set on fire - and I have an airbrush now! I love this plane, and once I saw a few reviews and pictures of the kit, I thought I'd give it a go...splashed out and give it a go! Going for th
  17. It's to my shame that it's taken me so long, but we are now very pleased to announce that we have, exclusive to Sovereign Hobbies, a healthy supply of 2 stage engine nacelle resin conversion sets for your 1/48 scale Tamiya de Havilland Mosquito kits by Pangolin Models (JasonC, as you may know him). https://www.sovereignhobbies.co.uk/collections/1-48/products/pangolin-two-stage-mosquito-nacelles-1-48 Everything is now ready except for the little cardboard folder-over thingimabobs with the label to go on the packaging, which we'll have ready within a week. These are avail
  18. Not everyone's cup of tea but I do like my toys and so when I started building this I thought I'd try livening it up when I stumbled upon the Magic Scale Modelling site, specifically this kit: https://www.magicscalemodeling.com/shop/DH-98-Mosquito-Motors-%26-Lights-set-1-32-%26-1-24-p81830358 6 months elapsed, and I had a lot of help along the way from Richard at Magic Scale Modelling, a lot of it down to my incompetence, and along the way he sent me the prototype of the new control board with the twin sound speakers, and I'm informed this is the first build using it. In hindsight I sho
  19. I hope its ok to join this party a little late? Being inspired by Enzo Matrix’s Buffalo Mosquito thread in this group build and a bunch of exciting images on the interweb: I would like to build a coastal command Mozzy. I have this Tamiya 1:48 FB VI in my small stash which will fit perfectly for such a build. I have been lurking on the forum for a while now but am an inexperienced modeller, having done it a lot as a kid (a loooooong time ago) and have recently returned to the hobby now with a couple of builds under my belt (with v
  20. Hello you, and a belated welcome to 2019. Here is a quicky I did in the post Christmas blues, a Mozzie carved from wood and camouflaged with wood stain. Its a bit of a mishmash, its supposed to be the cannon armed fighter, but the cockpit and exhaust blisters are from the MkIV bomber and the Brownings are too high in the nose. Still, it kept me out of the wife's way for a couple of weeks so it's all good. Enjoy.
  21. Just finished this one today. Not a bad kit considering it's 40 year age!! All that was required was a quick rescribe. Not much filler either which was a pleasant surprise! Paint used was Hataka in the main with Alclad Kleer Kote Flat to finish. Hope you like it!
  22. I'm back - been a while, but have been following some great posts on here. You may have seen my other 1/24 Scale Airfix diorama: Very pleased to win with it at Telford this year, a very nice surprise indeed. I said I would give aircraft a rest and get back to rusted cars & zombie stuff, my usual bread and butter when it comes to modelling. Well it didn't last long, I have had my eye on the Airfix 1/24 Scale de Havilland Mosquito for a while now, but something else normally got it the way. So I was happy to come across it again at Poole Vikings on Satu
  23. DH Mosquito PR.IV/B.IV 'Special Liveries' 1:144 Mark I Models The de Havilland Mosquito was conceived as a high-powered, high-speed bomber. Unlike other aircraft of the day, it was depended on its speed, rather than defensive gun turrets, for survival. It was also noteworthy for being constructed of wood composite, a technique pioneered by de Havilland in the sleek de Havilland Albatross airliner. This helped to save weight, but also reduced reliance on the scarce alloys used in the construction of other aircraft. Overcoming the skepticism of the Air Min
  24. Currently building the 1/48 Airfix Mosquito PR XVI. There is no radio antenna included in the kit, yet most profiles and photos I have seen of this aircraft show an antenna installed. Is this an oversight by Airfix or did some PR XVIs carry radio equipment that did not require an antenna? Thanks, Adrian
  25. Hi Chaps. Firstly, just wanted to say hi, I'm new to the forum and just back in the modelling game after a rather lengthy break of 35 years, one build in and loving it. So here is my question, I pushed the boat out and purchased the Airfix 1/24 Mosquito in the black friday sales. Really looking forward to getting started. Doing a little research on schemes and I have fixed upon The dark grey scheme with yellow spinners from the original 1/24 release (sorry I can't find a reference to which squadron etc) Does anyone know where I can purchase decals for this?
