"Mossie Heaven"

This has been my favourite build since starting back into the hobby after a 35 year holiday. The fact that the Mosquito is in my top 5 favourite aircraft of all time made this build a lot of fun. The kit is fantastic with tons of detail and plenty of finishing options as far as leaving doors open or closed. Very little of the interior is visible once this bird is buttoned up so if you are going to close all the doors you can save yourself a lot of time by not finishing the interior. In addition to the kit parts, I ordered a set of 100 gallon drop tanks and after market decals for a 404 Squadron RCAF Coastal Command Mosquito. Many aftermarket upgrades are available for this model. The trickiest part of this build as far as I was concerned was the landing gear (undercarriage). Tiny parts with minimums of tolerances resulted in a frustrating build of the first set of main gear but the second set went much easier having learned the first time. With this model you must decide early on which version you will be building as various holes will need to be opened in the wings or fuselage and optional parts will be used. Care must be taken to ensure that no version specific items are missed. This is another winner from Tamiya and another copy of this aircraft will cross my workbench again at some point in the future. So many Mosquitos, so little time. Cheers, Jeff

"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.

 
"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.
