About this Group
The de Havilland Aircraft Company Limited was formed on 25 september 1920. Geoffrey de Havilland designed aircraft before that date, and to fully celebrate the 100 years of the company, designs by his hand from those early years will be included in this Group.
Also included are the planes of De Havilland Canada and de Havilland Australia.
The Group will run for a full year, closing date 26 september 2021, and any model that is not entirely finished as of today can be included. In order to be able to track any submissions in headlines, please tag them DH100GB for ease of finding them later.
It is encouraged to post in-progress posts in the GB, but if you prefer a single post with a few in-progress pictures and a brief description will do.

Yep, and if I impatienly and prematurely coat it with Future, it self seals and takes ages to cure…
So patience it is, my friend @airbum!
Aaahhhh – looking at paint drying. . . patience my friend, patience 🙂

Adding some extras may help this questionbly reputated kit strengthen its posture!
So, here she is masked, at the paint shop:

Nice implementation of modern technology, George @gblair!
This looks like a wonder machine that can be useful in modelliing.
I love the looks of your Mosquito.
Looking forward to some decals?
@gblair – You’re right you wouldn’t want that hard edge on a model of a “real” Mosquito. The way to get a “soft-yet-distinct” edge using your mask machine is to run thread about 1/16 inch in from the edge of […]
What a great way to use the technology available to you George! I notice that the off-set pencilline even got cut precisely, what a treat.
The moviestar is looking better each time, and without having to do the […]
It really pays off to bribe the QC – you get a lot of building material from the empty icecream cups. Nice touch with the improved inlet guides my friend! Moving along rapidly this one!
A bunch of painted parts – then you know you ar moving along nicely! Well spotted to have the different colored tips on your build.
Thanks George @gblair!
The Hobbycraft fillets were unrealistic: not only were they out of scale (which I understand), but also were shallow (which might mean unneseccary smplification/omission.
Yep, paint […]

a bit of paint on a few things !!
I agree, Allan (@kalamazoo), that is a neat trick for the landing lights.
Moving along nicely, Allan (@kalamazoo). Looking forward to seeing what paint scheme you plan to use.
Nice fillets, Spiros (@fiveten). I also really like how a coat of paint brings everything together. Looking forward to the rest of the paint.
It is finally painting day. I also wanted to try making some masks using my wife’s San and Cut machine. I planned to use the machine to cut the masks for the camouflage as a trial to see how it would work for […]
Thanks Greg @gkittinger!
Headed to the paintshop for the underside blue. Here are the results:
Blue is a bit denser in reality, I think the camera sensor was confused from the underlying pic color….
Nice little touch!
