Has anyone built the Tamyia 1/32 mossie with Eduard engines?


Recommended Posts

I am wanting to know if anyone has built this kit with Eduard engines and has used the saxophone exhaust from the Tamiya kit for shrouded exhaust as the instructions show only the use of unshrouded exhaust and does it fit or if modifications are required.

Thanks

Denis

The answer is, Yes, I used the Eduard port engine in my build. While the Eduard engine is certainly a step up from that offered in the Tamiya kit, I found it really tested my ability to put it together. Specifically, apart from deciphering certain aspects of the nine pages of instructions, it requires that you acquire five different gauges of (lead) wire not provided for the build. I found shaping those various wires a real challenge. As for the exhausts, I compromised and adapted the kit parts to fit. The following are some shots ....
