DeHavilland Mosquito NF Mk.XVII. Tamiya 1/72
March 9, 2015 in Aviation
here is my DeHavilland Mosquito NF Mk.XVII in 1/72, made by Tamiya’s great kit…now with a painted canopy, fully finished. as i already said, it’s far from perfect but i’m somehow proud about it:)
it was generally an out from the box build, i’ve made only a few scratchbuild additions in the canopy section and on the gearlegs etc., but only minor ones.
i’ve used mostly tamiya acrylics and humbrol enamels, for weathering a home-mixed oilwash and various pastels was used.
i didn’t become a fan of tamiya’s decals after this build, definately decals are the weakest points of this kit. but anyways it was a real fun to build, there are so many techniques i’ve never ever used before…hope you like it too…
