Not sure Special hobby have that much to laugh about, they are not above making errors. you only have to look at the late mark Spitfires/Seafires with their very strange wing tips and their Hornets are not above reproach especially around the cockpit canopy and windscreen. Both firms seem announce kits and then nothing seems to happen for ages whilst stuff that has not been announced suddenly appears. Think of how long a Hart has been in the pipeline and the Sunderland seems to having the moulds made when someone has a bit of time to work on them. Sorry for a bit of a moan and glad someone is doing some two stage Mosquito's at last, but it does seem strange how some firms work.

Google: "Another type of finishing work will be an unprecedented surprise, it is a British twin-engine type and will appear in the second quarter"

 

Correction: the announced British twin engine a/c type kit for Q2 2018 is a DH.88 Comet and not the Mosquito ! :blush:

Fantastic news.

I have been waiting for a new mould NF30 for a long time.

I look forward to other 2-stage variants as well.

Thanks, AZ Model !!!!

Better late than never! I too look forward to a late model Mosquito night fighter. A more than adequate replacement for my long-lost Matchbox NF.30 (I think it was an NF.30). Now about that Hart from Special Hobby...

 

Regards,

Now, more than a year has passed since its announcement.

Will this kit ever be released?

Or was it just another "paper project" never to appear?

Any info on updates would be welcome.

I'm with Roman here.  What has happened to this kit and the others?  I REALLY want some two-stage Merlin Mossies in God's own scale.

I believe that Special Hobby has also announced 2-stage Mosquitos.  There was a statement that AZ and SH had reconciled their differences - perhaps they had also come to some agreement over not clashing with this subject?

I am in agreement with most of the other commentators.  It is really great to see late mark mosquitos in 1/72 scale finally in the pipeline.  I have always wondered why Hasegawa never did these.  This has always been an obvious gap in the market.  But better late than never.
