Progress on the 1/32 Tamiya Mosquito. The cockpit is about 80% complete. All that's left is the navigator's seat and seatbelts, and some touch-ups here and there. I used RAF Interior Green from Mission Models. Small details (buttons, etc.) are V[...]
A quick summary of a review I did on the Revell Mosquito last in comparison to the Tamiya Mosquito.
Both kits very detailed. The idea was bandied about among friends and not so friendly ones as well. Anyone remember the response whe[...]
The Mosquito bomber was the original purpose of the D.H.98 design. RAF authorities were doubtful of its ability to operate without defensive armament, depending on its speed to outrun enemy interceptors. The bomber version was only ordered into [...]

Made from wood, this plane has litle panel lines and/or rivets but, based on some photos, I did so[...]
Hi friends, after a year of construction I finished a diorama with Tamiya Mosquito in Scale 1:32
I try to portray my dioramas historically. In this case I have 8 books with photos of WW II helped ... Have fun ...
As progress of the RAF GB continues on and the October reveal now would you believe less than 2 months away. I have 4 projects on going with 2 completed and the other 2 coming along nicely. With some time left to build a 5th model in wh[...]
The Mosquito is my favorite aircraft and I would love to be able to get behind the stick some day. I won't be able to add much to all the things said about this Tamiya kit other than it was a pleasure to build, very smooth. I used Cutt[...]
