This is my first build F-8 Mosquito ,3rd Photo Group 12th AAF using the Mogram kit as when I looked for the

Tamiya Kits I could not find them ,but got this one out that I did some work on year`s ago so this is it only done the

office so under 25%

Now I remember why I put this back in the box all those years ago, the fuselage is to thin , the prop`s are wrong so useing Airfix ones

witch are bigger than the Mogram ones so pack out the wing and used the under part of the engine cover plus a bit of work done to

the wheel bay interior

but this one`s out of the stash and it`s not going back

Thanks to Troy Smith for pointing me to so new decals and a down load that showed

that my ADS markins were wrong and the down load had most of the info I needed .

Great work to bring the kit up to speed... and you're even assembling it in two halves, just like a real Mozzie.  I'm looking forward to the painting and marking as I have a perverse love of aircraft models in the 'wrong' markings.
