Hello,

 

I show you my recently finished HK Models Mosquito that I built as a photo reconnaissance bird. The model was a pleasure to build!

I used a Eduard cockpit set and wheels. The few decals are from EagleCals (national markings) and Ventura (8 inch code letters). The color is RAF PRU Blue from Mr. Paint.

Hi Nico - Looks stunning in blue and very nicely weathered. Does the camera bits come with the kit or did you make your own?

 

Cheers Taff :D

Thanks for the comment. The windows for the cameras in the forward bomb bay are included in the kit. All you have to do is to open up the bomb bay parts. I glued a piece of black painted sheet styrene behind it, so you cannot see through the bomb bay. There are no cameras in the kit and I did not build any...

As for the camera windows beneath the rear fuselage and on the port side: I drilled them out, black painted sheet behind it and a circle of clear plastic into the hole. I encountered some problems and ended up painting the windows black + some coats of future.
