Revell 1/32 Mosquito
Interested to see what could be done with this kit without spending a fortune. Actually very impressed! PRU model with the fuselage camera in the wrong place (sorry)! Eduard wheels (for Tamiya) were the only extras. When you open the box you can see why it’s so cheap but with a bit of cockpit detailing, drilling out of PRU glass (on the bomb bay) and bottom hatch glass it’s a great kit.
Was going to forget the engine but actually it’s not that bad a a bit of extra pipework and wiring…
Ok no bomb bay, opening entry hatch. Glass shows its age a bit. For £30 as opposed to the HK models version? Crying out for better canopy and a Fighter Bomber version at this price point! Critics have said the overall shape is very accurate and even surpasses the Tamiya and HK Models versions. Nose windows are wrong though. Not a rivet counter so I don’t know. It looks like a Mosquito.
Sorry about the bubble on decals, wrong position of oblique camera and the “Keep Off” decal which never seems to look right on Mossie models! (Did use Decal Soft). Rattle Can of Riolett UK PRU Blue for the paint.
Well worth the money if you balk at the price of rivals.
