Airfix 1/72 – Mosquito FB VI

The RAF WWII ‘wooden wonder’ here in a 1970’s kit.
It depicts a plane from the 487th Squadron, in Operation Jericho, Amiens 18 Feb 1944.

Made from wood, this plane has litle panel lines and/or rivets but, based on some photos, I did some weathering. Modifications included drilling exaust pipes.

4 additional images. Click to enlarge.
