  1. 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.
  2. Welcome to my first WIP thread. So, here it goes,... De Havilland Mosquito from Tamiya with David Brown tug. Not 100% sure if I'm building FB MkVI of 143 Squadron (Sea grey with yellow spinner) or FB MkVI of 487 Squadron (like the box) This will be to replace an old model I brush painted years ago,... now in an effort to modernize the collection with airbrushed versions. Also here, I have a neat little resin David Brown tractor I'll be building today. This should complement the Mossie very well.

  4. Hi, I had Airfix FB Mk XVIII made about 20 years ago I wanted to add to collection another Mosquito, which will be different as much as possible from the previous one. It was about 5 year ago. My choice was bomber/recce machine with glazed nose. However I wanted to do another difference - longer engines. If one would like to build a model of DH Mosquito with longer Merlin engines - I do not remeber if there any other option then old Matchbox kit. I belive that there is no other option, still. So I bought Tamiya kit and Pavla conversion kit which consist of two engines and set of exhaust pipes all made of resin. When I started to work on this - I was shocked - the Pavla engines were of the same lenght as short engines of Tamiya! I do not know the reason for such huge mistake. Anyway, I decided to use those engines, although I move them forward as I remeber 3 or 4 mm (I had nice drawings so it was under control), I cut off coolers which are below engines, replaced them and also moved position of exhaust pipes. I have used original Tamiya exhaust pipes since the one from Pavla were proportionally to short. All together there was some body putty and sanding needed. I changed the propellers, I belive, also. She is wearing markings of US 8th Army from UK, late 1944-45. Airplane was used for photo recconesance and some weather recce flights. And a family photo: Regards Jerzy-Wojtek
