Spotlight Review

"As always, Tamiya Delivers the goods!"
Martin L (Manchester, NH)
This kit is well worth the money that I paid for it when taking into consideration how well engineered it is, the quality of the molded product, the detail within the cockpit, wheel assemblies, bomb bay and front gun magazine compartment, when compared to other manufacturers that mold this aircraft. The fits of parts is excellent, I only needed a small amount of filler on the top of the fuselage. The parts come with finely recessed panel lines and rivets which look great when highlighted using a wash of oil paints. The decals offer 3 different squadron markings that went on really well and looked painted on when applying to a gloss varnished surface then finished with two coats of matte/flat varnish. The model can be displayed with the cockpit door in the open position and an access ladder put in place. The front gun magazine compartment cover panel can be left unglued to remove and display the inner detail. I modeled mine with both of these options and can be seen in the images above. I have to say that out of the 7 kits that I have built to date, this is the best one yet. It was a joy to build and the final results are extremely pleasing. This model has now taken the prime location on our lounge display cabinet, illuminated by the built in LED lights! If you are a fan of the Mosquito, fondly known as the Mossie or the Wooden Wonder because of it being constructed mainly of wood, making it one of the most formidable Fighter Bomber aircraft of WW.II, very fast and maneuverable because of its light weight, you MUST buy this kit.....I highly recommend it!! I will be buying another one, but when I do, I will be buying the after market resin Rolls Royce Merlin Engines and engine cowling covers, along with the etched brass seats and safety belts and a resin set of movable ailerons, flaps and rudder to make it look even more realistic than it already does. My only negative about this kit is; it would have been nice for the ailerons, flaps and rudder to be separate assemblies so that they can be modeled in any position. That said, at the assembly stage, one can cut these from the solid molded parts and refit in open positions. Go ahead, make your one now!!

"well engineered kit"
wayne (Birmingham AL)
When I opened the box and saw all the parts and options, I thought what have I gotten myself into. in typical Tamiya fashion it went together great. I built it in the grey on green camo scheme and man it looks great.

Opened the box just to see the parts in the bags..Excellent Excellent..Read directions and some details have no verbal clues. Should be able to figure it out as I work on the kit..Have ordered a set of brass machine gus for this kit to replace the plastic ones..They look great,,

"fun build"
marvin_bunting (Topeka,Ks)
This is one of my favorite aircraft from WW ll. It was an excellent build and quite detailed. The instructions were easy to follow,with no difficulties. The assembly didn't require any filler as the parts were molded very well and fit together great. The only con that I found was the paint since I'm not familiar with Tamiya paint codes,so had some difficulty transferring the colors to American colors. Thankfully I found the paints online. I liked this model and have ordered the MK IV version for these reasons. I would recommend this ti anyone looking for a fun and easy to build model.
