A friend of of mine had this kit for years, never tried to build it, but then he knew I was a modeler and, well, you know the rest. Not my favorite scale and, if I knew about this canopy assembly, with two halves to be glued and very har[...]
Before Chirstmas, I had no idea what would be in store for me. And I'm sorry this went up so late, but family issues got in the way. So, thank you Tom Bebout for this wonderful package of a Blue Angel's F-18 and the Monogram Mosquito! These addi[...]

Once deHavilland received a production order in January 1940 for one prototype of the D.H. 98 design as an unarmed bomber to specification B.1/40/dh, the contract was modified on March 1, 1940 under Specification B.1/40 for 50 bomber-reconnaiss[...]
