  1. Hi all, Finally finished my entry for last years Mosquito STGB, well at least its in time for the KUTA GB deadline! The kits actually quite nicely detailed and a reasonable alternative for the Tamiya kit apart from the gear legs being too short and the wheels being too big (which i can live with) and the mis-shapen spinners, which i did manage to reshape to improve them a bit. Unfortunately the kit is now OOP which is surprising for a kit that was first released in about 2008 i think? I was progressing reasonably well in the STGB but then bust the canopy while polishing it and as i then learnt there is no aftermarket option for a 48th scale mossie bomber canopy it languished in the modelling box on top of the microwave waiting for divine inspiration. Eventually I managed to vac form a replacement, wont bore you with the details here but theres a link to the build thread here - hmm cant get the link button to work so its in the KUTA IV GB!! So finally was able to complete it, paint was with Tamiya for main colours and finished with Xtracrylics matt varnish all that remains is for me to say a really big thanks to PeteW for taking some decent pics for me with his proper camera, they look a million times better than anything i could get with my bog standard camera! On with the pics: Thanks for looking in and as usual any C&CC greatly appreciated! Cheers, Stu
