    I know I haven't posted any models in ages, just been busy with work and uni. I also had to move house so sadly a lot of half finished or slightly rubbish models had to go in the bin! Anyway, I've just completed these two so thought I'd share. First up is a Mosquito of 157 Squadron, which is the 1:48 Tamiya kit

    Was pleased with how the kit went together, a few decals silvered a bit though. I painted it gloss black then used matt varnish after the decals, which helped them adhere. The only thing missing are the radio antennas going through the wingtips - didn't notice until after wards and not sure if I want to risk drilling now!


    The other one is the Revell 1:32 He162 Salamander 2./JG 1

    Quite pleased with this one, apart from the demarcation line between the grey and green being rather vague as I don't think my airbrush can do very fine lines. A couple of bits are rather fiddly but overall it's a nice kit. Both built out the box


    Not great photos I know, will try and get some outside ones if it ever stops raining!

    Yep, I agree, nice work on both. Glad to hear I'm not the only one almost drowning in Britain's liquid sun!

    I'll be trying to build the Mossie kit soon myself. Are there any notes or memos I need to keep in mind? excluding the antennas of course... :)
