Interested to see what could be done with this kit without spending a fortune. Actually very impressed! PRU model with the fuselage camera in the wrong place (sorry)! Eduard wheels (for Tamiya) were the only extras. When you open the box you can[...]
This kit was given to me by my latest trainee at work after he passed out as a thank-you. This is the first time in over 30 years that this has happened to me and I was very touched by it.

My first photo show's a black & white photo that I took out of Reed Kinert's air racing book. The paper back book had a red cover, but I don't remember its' name. I just cut out dozens of photos and scanned them into our Apple p.c. using a[...]
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[...]

So now there is a PR Mosquito at iModeler!

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[...]
