The Mosquito is the third part of my Banff Strike Wing trilogy. I have made a Beaufighter from Dallachy and a P-51 Mustang 4 from Peterhead so a nice Mossie from Banff would make the set.
The above image shows the squadrons lining up for take off. There is another photo that shows 48 Mosquitoes parked around the airfield. I managed to get a set of decals for elements of 333 (Nor.) Squadron - known as "The Outriders". Their job was to fly out in advance and suss out suitable targets for the wing to hit. They had small Norwegian flags on the nose of their aircraft and would regularly fly low over Norwegian coastal towns where they got huge cheers from the populace being fed up after 5 years of occupation. I went for Mosquito FB.VI HP904.
I have been very careful in my modelling, just for once, but still managed one of my regular stupid mistakes - I left off the landing lights on the underside of the wings which had to be inserted before the wings were stuck together. I realised just AFTER I had glued the wings together. Still, as I will almost never pick the model up, I decided to stop worrying.
As I have been moving over phones, I don't have any build images except the one I took today which shows the model fully painted and decalled - just awaiting all the bits that could break off when being handled.
More when I have got it finished.
