1:24 Airfix Mosquito differences

Recommended Posts

I have built a few now and its a really nice kit. The weak point on the undercarriage is where the small "loops" at the top on the leg join it to the model. They snap if you are not careful.

I'll have to keep an eye out for that, assuming I actually get the model, which I really hope to do.

Any progress with the references list, Ron? Our own kit database listing (here), shows 41 titles specifically associated with the aircraft, quite a few of which I do not own. I'm curious as to whether any of those I don't have, are worth a purchase (or not).

The first one is the one from the RAF museum and has color chips on the last page, great for matching or mixing your own colors. I have matched all of the colors I need to do PZ474 in Extra Dark Sea Grey and Sky and all of the roundels, code letters and serials with Vallejo Model Air paints. I have all the masks I need from Makater. I've never done paint masks, other then canopy ones, before. I have three bottles each of the EDSG AND Sky, just to make sure I don't run out in the middle of painting...lol
