Do you have any information about your Grandfather's time on Mosquitos?


Im reading through his diaries from WWII- they’re fascinating so I’m enjoying reading them slowly, extracting little bits from them. He’s still training on RAAF Ansons and Tiger Moths where I’m up to (have some particular aircraft I’ll build one day) but I haven’t got to his time on Mossies in Nova Scotia and Europe yet.
 

I’ve got a special plane in mind with a connection to him, I’ll probably base it on the Tamiya 1/48 B Mk. IV

Xtradecal should have really provided squadron code & serial examples for all PFF units on their X72334 sheet. There’s way too many national insignia roundels provided and personally I’d be more than happy to use the ones supplied in the new Airfix kit anyway. 
 

Cheers and Rant over.. Dave

mossies have started biting, which I’ll take as a sign, so sign me up

Not the wooden ones then!

You're on the list Gerard - Number 20!

(only 5 to go and we're in the bunfight for 2025 GBs)

 

Thanks,

My next build will be my second attempt at the Airfix 1/48 Mosquito PR XVI....so I would love to be a part of this build.

I built the 70s Airfix with the Molins gun last time.

Excellent OOB build.

Count me in!

Still shortlisting my favourite variants and yet to decide on scale.

 

Hi Phil, thanks! You're on the list.

 

This seems like a popular STGB so I have high hopes of getting through the bunfight in late 2024. Lots of time to go.

 

Cheers,

Please add me to the list.

I have a soft spot for mossies, so any excuse to build another one.

 

You're added Trevor - number 25! So we now go into the bunfight... towards the end of 2024!

 

Cheers,

An ideal opportunity to make it Wez!

Mosquito GB you say? Well my stash of Mossies has reduced by 2 this year, but there’s several still to do ranging from 1/72 to 1/24, so mind if I join?

Mind? Delighted you can join us Roland!

Should we get through the bunfight of course.

Happy Christmas!
