Airfix de Havilland Mosquito Mk. XVI 1/72

March 21, 2023 · in Aviation · · 20 · 548

This is the new in 72nd scale. This kit is gorgeous, not just because the details/fit, etc. is great. It's also cleverly engineered. The are parts you can use to temporarily cover the wheel bay and other parts have arrows which make sure you position them correctly. I used almost zero filler.

I will definitely get the PR version which was just released.

Airbrushed with ammo mig and ak interactive acrylics. Some panel wash by Ammo Mig. Not too much weathering/fading with the colors since these planes always look so clean on pictures.
