Revell 1/32 Mosquito or The Scottish Tamiya. Not good!
So. Scottish in three ways. Banff Strike Wing. I’m Scottish. Therefore too tight to pony up for the Tamiya Mossie. I did try but the canopy was very difficult and sadly lets it down badly. It came from Australia (Tasman) and was for Revell but modifying it to FB wasn’t easy. Also is it just me or is the Grey Matter nose too long and somehow wrong? Certainly compared to the 1/48 Tamiya nose it looks too pointy. Also the props aren’t right although I blunted them a bit. I spent a fair bit on aftermarket undercarriage and rockets (which can be reused).
Think I’ll just have to shake the moths out of my wallet and buy the Tamiya one! I kind of grudge it because they are way expensive (£200) and a tad over engineered (who needs all those panels hanging off?). Wish HK would make a FB Mosquito or someone would produce a really good conversion for the Revell.
No regrets. It was fun trying.
