1/72 RAAF Mosquitos, 1SQN and 464SQN


Recommended Posts

Well we are back in lockdown with the Delta strain doing its thing here for the last month of so. Fortunately only 15-20 cases a day in our little part of the woods. But it is enough for the authorities to keep us housebound. Our club decided to run a Lockdown Blitz build over a week which as turned into a month long blitz, so this is the result of my attempt which was just finished today. So not so blitzy in the end.

 

It is two original tool 1/72 Airfix Mossies in the markings 1SQN RAAF (A52-526) and 464SQN RAAF (MM403). I used Aussie Decals for the 1SQN Mossie and DK & PD decals for the 464SQN aircraft.

Those look really good Ray, the old Airfix kit scrubs up well with care, as you've shown most ably. :)

What is the white patch on the spine of SB-V, a new one on me?

Steve.

Thanks guys,

Steve, apparently the dingy pack is stowed under that panel, the instructions called for white/light colour. I did it a very light grey. Just looked at the instructions again and it is the surround that is the light colour, so I think I will have to mask and fill the centre in with the camo colour.

You should have taken more time Ray 😛

 

On a serious note, great job in a relatively short space of time 👍👍

Thanks Ray, truthfully, I wouldn't have known what it was either way but I may not have noticed it the same as an outline.
