Upcoming Mossie Mania

April 19, 2015 in Aviation

Just to have an acceptable (so: not perfect) Mossie in my 48th collection I decided to marry the venerable nearly perfect in Outline Airfix Mossie with the superbly molded Tamiya which has some severe fuselage shape issues (cross section behind the wings`trailing edge and fuselage height) The model has the Tamiya canopy which resulted in an awful putty&sand job at the seems. The kit is colored with Schmincke artist airbrush paints. The tones are self mixed. Declas from Aeromaster (mostly).

  1. Andreas, not sure what’s happened, but you seem to have loaded up a second article, but without photos.

  2. There was a problem with my first try. A window popped up indicating that my try was unsuccessful. So I tried a second time. Sorry! Hope not a big problem for you.
    Nice (rest of) Sunday from cold and sunny Berlin

  3. I like the markings and the gunfire residue around the 20mm cannon!

  4. I see Tamiya is bringing out a new tool fighter version in 1/32, but your 1/48 build looks great.

  5. Good job on this old kit and a good inspiration to dig out my AX Mossie and build it !

  6. Wow, a 1/32 Mosquito from Tamiya, I could be tempted…….. but your 1/48 model looks great, Andreas.

  7. Congratulations Andreas on a job well done. As a long time “kit masher” I truely appreciate your efforts to achieve “perfection”
