    Here is my finished mosquito from the build thread. As some of you may have noticed in the past I've been rather hard on Airfix products. This one is really no different if you read my build thread but that being said I must admit I enjoyed this one a lot. So much in fact i plan to build another one real soon. These Airfix kits give you a lot of room to practice your scratch building. :lol:

    Nice work mate!

    (One very minor thing - the antenna mast should be standing straight)

    Agree about the antenna mast - in fact, by that period, it would probably be a whip antenna, unless operating to the far North, in Norwegian waters, where the wire aerial might be required for range, especially at lower altitudes.

    According to the book The De Haviland Mosquito a comprehensive guide for the modeller page 78 neither early or late aircraft carried the antenna mast its was a whip antenna on both if that's any help :)

    Nice build 8)

    Yeh i think your right the rear of the tips should be yellow, easy fix for Dirk ;)

    I reckon one of the main undercarriage legs need to be straightned a little other than that she's a good looking bird.
