This is my model-rendition of 105 Sqn Mosquito DZ467. The build is based on a 1970's wreckage I have found on Ebay. As reasonably priced 1/32 Mossie kits were hard to get in 2013 I started bidding just for fun and won the auction at 5 Euros. Oh dear! What followed was a 4 years modelling odyssey that finally led me to the (unmissable!) De Havilland Museum at London Colney, and in which I learned a lot about scratchbuilding and an amazing WW2-aircraft that has been rather strange to me before.
I used the Squadron canopy set, Eduard Brassin exhaust stacks and Tamiya prop blades & spinners kindly provided by Anthony from NZ. All the rest, including the wheels, was made from scratch or heavily modified, so is the engine.
WIP is here.
Hope you like it
